Marble worktop maintenance

Marble is 100% natural material with unique colour and pattern. Worktop is made of the marble quarried from earth’s crust, cut in suitable size, edges and surface finished.

Marble worktops are only durable when regularly and properly maintained.

Daily cleaning

For daily cleaning of marble worktop, we recommend using damp (microfiber) cloth, warm water and either neutral (pH 7), mild alkaline (pH 8-10) detergent if necessary. You should prefer cleaning products specially designed for natural stone and avoid using highly acidic or bleach containing cleaning products.

Preventing and removing stains

Marble is porous and absorbent and thus requires great caution and protection from dirt and liquids. Be sure to avoid spilling chemicals and corrosive substances on the surface.

We recommend that stains are removed immediately with kitchen paper, water and washing liquid in order to prevent dirt from drying or absorbing into the stone. With more stubborn stains, we recommend the use of special marble scouring preparations. We recommend that after using the preparation, the worktops are washed again with water and detergent. A suitable preparation can be obtained from Diapol or, depending on the country, from a retail network.

Avoiding heat damage and scratches

Marble is not scratch-proof; we recommend that you always use cutting boards.

Marble is heat resistant but we recommend that you always use heat shields.

Long-term maintenance

All worktops have been treated with an impregnating agent to prevent liquids from absorbing into the stone and thus ensure longevity. Based on the intensity of use and the type of marble we recommend that the marble is re-treated at least once a year with an impregnating agent especially designed for the purposes of marble maintenance.
