How to Care for Your Marble Countertops

There is no denying that choosing marble countertops at the Lake of the Ozarks is a classic choice that will result in an absolutely astonishing finish. While choosing marble for your countertop material is an easy choice to make, knowing the proper maintenance for your marble can be tricky. While knowing exactly how to care for your marble can be tricky, it doesn't have to be. When you choose Metro Marble & Granite for your countertop installation at the Lake of the Ozarks, we are here to be a great resource for you to ensure your new countertops last for years to come. Today, Metro Marble & Granite has put together a helpful list so you know how to keep your marble in tip-top shape.

Marble Care and Maintenance

First things first, the finish of the countertop can drastically help with the care and maintenance of your countertops. Marble is porous which makes it more prone to staining and etching. If you choose a polished finish, you need to be cautious when it comes to liquids on your counters as well as sharp objects. However, if you go with a honed (matte) finish, those little imperfections won’t be as noticeable.

Protect Your Countertops

There are certain harsh and acidic liquids that will etch marble. Those things include but are not limited to tomato sauces, and citrus juice, and of course vinegar. If any of these liquids are spilled onto your counter, do not let them sit, not even for the shortest amount of time. It’s also extremely important to use coasters, and of course cutting boards. Never cut directly on your marble countertops. You should also use pot holders and refrain from putting extremely hot pots or pans directly on your marble surface.

Seal Your Countertops

Sealing a porous countertop is extremely important. Sealing marble will repel staining agents, but it won’t make your counters waterproof. When choosing your marble countertops, Metro Marble & Granite can help you decide which is the best sealant for you and your new counters. It’s important to reseal your countertops as often as necessary. When water no longer beads on the surface, you will know your counters need to be resealed.

Clean Your Countertops

When it comes down to cleaning your marble, you will want to avoid using any cleaners that are abrasive or any that are acidic. The best way to regularly clean your marble countertops is to use warm soapy water and a soft microfiber cloth. Remember to clean up any spills as soon as they happen.
