Marble - Care

Product and Cleaning Care

When cleaning Marble you need to take into account the following:

  1.  Use marble cleaner and polish as much as possible.
  2. Rub dull or etched spots with a putty powder and a damp cloth by continuously folding and re-folding the damp cloth.
  3. Contact us for assistance regarding surfaces that are severely damaged, etched or scratched.
  4. For organic stains make a poultice from white absorbent material such kitchen towel or tissues dampened mixed with 20 per cent peroxide and a few drops of ammonia. Leave the mix on the stain for 1 to 48 hours depending on the depth of stain and how long it has been there for.
  5. For oil stains spread surface with an absorbent fine powder such as whiting or corn starch. After a short while brush the powder to remove and reapply more powder. Let it stand for 24 hours before removing. To remove scrub with a hot, detergent solution and stiff brush or wipe with ammonia-dampened cloth. Then rinse and dry.
  6. For rust stains use a commercial rust stain remover. Follow the directions on the remover carefully and do not leave it for too long as it may etch the surface.
  7. Wipe acid spills from items such as beverages and fruit juices immediately with a wet cloth. If the surfaced has etched, polishing may be required.
  8. For any severe maintenance or cleaning feel free to contact us.
