How do I keep my Marble Bathroom in pristine condition?
Being a natural wonder, marble is an inherently porous material that requires a bit of tender loving care to preserve its exquisiteness. But, rest assured, whichever marble you prefer, your stone professional will apply the ideal sealer to preserve your marble. This sealant locks out all moisture, preventing any water damage that could lead to deterioration.
Our overview below provides a general guide on maintaining marble, but a professional natural stone provider will furnish you with detailed care instructions – including guidance on the ideal interval between re-sealing all marble surfaces.
Cleaning and Day to Day Care
Keeping marble in immaculate condition is quite simple when you keep a few essential tips in mind.
What To Use
The ideal way to keep your marble shower clean is by using a pH neutral (7) detergent or even glycerine soap.
What Not To Use
Never clean marble with vinegar or harsh cleaning detergents, as the chemical make-up and acidity in these items will erode and damage the stone. Further, steer clear of very soapy products that could leave build-up and grime over time.
Leave your shower door open after use to keep the area properly ventilated. This encourages any water to evaporate, preventing mildew from forming and extending the lifespan of the marble sealant.
Even better? Run an absorbing cloth over especially the shower floor to remove most of the water. This also prevents any watermarks from forming.
Long Term Maintenance
In general, marble should be re-sealed every 2 to 3 years, unless your marble provider suggests a specific alternative interval.
Although it is possible to re-seal your marble surfaces yourself, we suggest calling in the experts to ensure your exquisite stone is perfectly sealed.
