Marble is one of the strongest and most durable countertop materials available today. In addition, it is easier to clean and maintain than other materials which are even slightly neglected. However, it is important to take the right measures to avoid damage to the granite.
The proper use, care, and maintenance of this table will ensure that it will remain beautiful and sparkling for many years to come. Here are some tips on how to use and maintain marble surfaces.
Avoid spilling acid on this countertop as it can corrode the granite. Although substances such as wine, ketchup, alcoholic beverages, fruit juices, soft drinks, and coffee may not carve granite the way they do marble, neglecting them could stain your table. In addition, cooking oil can discolor surfaces if not cleaned immediately.
If you clean and wipe up spills regularly, it is recommended that you use a paper towel, soft cloth, or sponge. You can use wet wipes to remove the sticky residue from the surface. Use dish soap and warm water to clean Chinese marble countertops. However, be aware that repeated and excessive use of soap can make surfaces dull. Do not use steel wool and other related granite cleaners.
Avoid putting excessive pressure on the countertop edges. Increased weight and pressure may damage the edges.
