Having years of experience in the industry, we have noticed that white marble is one of the most adored worktop materials because of its unbeatable style and beauty. There is no other natural material as gorgeous as marble. However, potential buyers must know every detail of this natural stone before installing into their house.
MKW Surfaces’ white marble is one of the most preferable worktop materials in the market. It not only looks wonderful but is also versatile at the same time. Homeowners can install white marble in both kitchens and bathrooms, especially in period homes.
The gorgeous white marble worktop can also add stunning appeal to any modern home interior without much decking up. Therefore, if anyone wants an exquisite and sophisticated interior, they must consider installing white marble into different areas of their house.
Homeowners must understand that it requires minimal effort to protect white marble against staining and etching and staining. Here are some expert tips to help people protect their marble worktop and keep it as good as new:
Sealing: Unlike a white marble laminate worktop or quartz worktop, natural marble requires proper sealing to withstand staining agents. Sealing marble does not make it totally stain-proof but highly stain-resistant. Spillages of colourants in wine, ketchup and coffee mustn’t be left on its surface for days on end. Homeowners need to talk to a professional stone worktop supplier to determine the type of sealant is perfect for their marble. If water begins to seep into marble again, it’s time to reseal this natural stone.
Protection against Citrus Fruits or Liquids: Don’t let citrus fruits or liquids, such as lemon, orange, tomato and vinegar, sit on marble’s surface. Marble needs to be treated just like a fine wood finish. Always use cutting boards and coasters to prevent unwanted stains while chopping or drinking lemon juice or wine. Also, wipe off the spills immediately so that the liquid doesn’t seep into the surface of the stone.
Cleaning: Homeowners must avoid using abrasive and acidic cleaners when cleaning marble. It is best to sweep up or vacuum clean the surface first. For regular cleaning, use a damp mop or sponge with mild soap or ph neutral cleaner.
Spot Treatment: Unlike a white marble-effect laminate worktop, natural marble requires a little effort for keeping spots at bay. To remove any stubborn stains, you must use a poultice paste. Apply the paste onto the stained area and cover it with a plastic wrap using a painter’s tape. After the paste dries out completely, scrape off the paste and wipe up the area using a damp cloth. In case the stains are deep-set, reapply the paste for the desired result.
Following these care tips, MKW Surfaces’ white marble worktops are likely to shine bright and stay intact in the coming years.
