Tips on How to Clean and Maintain Marble Countertops

As the favorite medium for Greek and Roman sculptors and architects, marble has become a cultural symbol of tradition and refined taste. Its extremely varied and colorful patterns make it a favorite decorative material, and are frequently imitated by different other materials. It represented refinement, class, and wealth.

Marble countertops features:

  • Naturally beautiful
  • Durability in time
  • Stain resistant when properly maintained
  • Individual personality

The visual impact of marble countertops is amazing. The slightly porous surface that contains crystals allows light to penetrate the top layer of the marble. This light is then reflected back up to the surface, resulting in a sparkly show that attracts the eye, creating a dazzling effect.

However, to keep your marble countertops clean and in good shape you need to ensure proper maintenance.

How to clean Marble Countertops

Dust at least once a week with a soft microfiber cloth. For wet cleaning, use a damp cloth and a pH-neutral cleaner designed for stone. It’s always a great idea to check with your countertop company for their recommendations.

Never use regular cleaning products that can etch the stone surface over time. And stay away from abrasive cleaners that will damage and dull the finish. Also, make sure to avoid products containing acid, including lemon juice and vinegar. You can simply use a mild, non-abrasive, pH neutral (non-acidic) soap mixed with water, which is all you really need to clean marble countertops.

Marble Countertops regular maintenance

Seal the countertops regularly. Natural stone is porous. The best way to prevent stains is to treat the surface with a protective sealer.
