Marble

Marble is a metamorphic rock that’s formed when limestone comes in contact with high pressure and intense heat. Under these conditions, the calcite in the limestone recrystallizes into a denser rock. Other minerals present in the limestone impact the color and appearance of the marble. Mineral impurities such as clay, sand, or silt create the veins and swirls characteristic of marble.

Marble is a stunning choice that can add character to any part of your home. As a sleek flooring option, it fits beautifully in a foyer, kitchen, bathroom, or hallway. You can use marble for a backsplash or countertop, but you must be mindful of the potential for staining, particularly if it comes into contact with acidic substances.

Marble is also suitable for many commercial spaces and can even be installed outdoors in milder climates.

Minute, crack-like patterns are a normal feature of marble. Sealing your marble tile will help ensure it stands up to foot traffic and moisture. Otherwise, what is referred to as veining is due to the different minerals that have become trapped in the body of the stone over millions of years; this accounts for the swirling color patterns that give marble its character.

Sealing is definitely recommended because marble is a porous material, which means any liquids that come into contact with the surface tend to leech into the body of the stone.This can cause discoloration and staining.

Sealing marble can help make sure that materials remain on the surface of the marble until they’re cleaned off. This is the best way to retain marble’s original appearance for as long as possible. Talk to an expert about which sealer to use and how often you should reseal your marble. As always, read the labels of the products you plan to use, take necessary safety precautions, and follow instructions carefully.

Marble tiles must be properly gauged with perfectly square corners and calibrated to have a flat back. It’s important to understand that these tiles have natural shade variations throughout. This will give your project a distinctive look that no one else can replicate. Have your installer lay the tiles out before installing them so you can adjust their placement as needed to get the pattern and appearance you’re looking for.

Regularly remove dirt, grit, and other materials tracked in from outside. These materials can cause tiny scratches on the surface of marble, which can become more noticeable with time. Clean the surface with a damp cloth, soft broom, or vacuum quite often.

Spills should be cleaned immediately, especially if they’re acidic in nature. Fruit juice, coffee, and red wine are particularly problematic because of their tendency to stain. Even if your marble is sealed, it’s best not to take any chances. Also, don’t clean with bleach, vinegar, or any harsh acidic cleaners as these will degrade the marble’s surface over time.

Stains can be removed from marble by using a procedure called poulticing. This procedure draws the stain up from marble and into another material – a mixture of a reducing agent soaked into a cloth or paper towel is the most basic type of poultice.

Since the best stain removal methods should always be measured against the type of stain you have, it’s always a good idea to seek advice from an expert if you’re unsure what procedure to use based on the type of material that has stained your marble.

In many cases marble can be repaired. Most often, an epoxy glue or filler can be used. Consult an expert’s advice for product recommendations that will suit your marble.
