If you do decided to get marble in your home then you will need to take care of it, here are some quick tips:
Prevention – some liquids could stain or eat away at your marbles surface creating dull spots. However, if you seal your marble every few months with a good sealant, use the right cleaning products, and use placemats or coasters then this should help keep it looking tip top.
Cleaning – make sure you clean your marble regularly with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, afterwards ensure you dry thoroughly to prevent any absorption that could cause staining. With a marble floor avoid using a hoover and turn to a dust mop instead.
Stains – If you spot a stain act quickly to try avoid full absorption into the marble. However, if the stain happened a while beforehand, try a mix of baking powder with ammonia, or hydrogen peroxide applied to the stain for up to 48 hours.
Scratches – If you want to remove scratches that have occurred gently rub the area with warm water, and a soft cloth. For the deeper scratches use a very fine grain sandpaper, if neither of these options work contact a professional.
