Marble Countertops – Hollywood Florida
Marble is a natural stone that is unique, with an elegant touch of class and sophistication. It quickly becomes the centerpiece of any room with its bold characteristics and strong allure.
Marble is the most porous of the three materials which makes it way more susceptible to stains and discoloration from acidic liquids and strong chemical cleaners. A high-grade sealant is required to ensure this uniquely sensitive material remains beautiful and vibrant and to avoid staining. Marble countertops make up for their upkeep with their uniqueness and natural beauty.
No two pieces are ever the same- these slabs of stone have been forming for thousands of years and are as unique as you and me. This material has a pure and natural allure that’s been used by people for hundreds of years. It’s style and beauty are unparalleled.
Maintenance on marble is the most demanding of the 4 types of countertops. Marble is made of calcium carbonate, a material that reacts with acids, like those of food, drinks and chemicals. Even water can cause damage to a marble surface. The result of this damage is called “etching”, which is the corroding of the stone; etching looks like a dull or lighter spot.
Scratching is another factor to consider when looking at marble. Since this natural stone is extremely porous, it is not as strong as the others and will scratch and chip much easier.

How to Seal and Clean a Marble Countertop
Sealing is probably the first thing anybody installing a marble kitchen has to decide to do. This material is as beautiful as it is delicate. Marble will etch, stain, chip and scratch far easier than the other three stones we work with. The reason for this is marble’s extremely porous surface. Some types of marble will require a sealer to reduce the risk of damage (although sealers won’t protect against etching).
Marble is crystalized limestone, which makes maintenance very important to keep in mind. In order to keep your surface looking beautiful, it’s important to blot up spills immediately: The longer a liquid sits on the marble, the great the chances it will etch the surface. Also, clean the surface with hot water and a sponge or cloth. You can also use marble cleaner.
