Description

Marble is a natural stone with unique colours and patterns. Because it is highly porous and easily absorbs liquids, it is not recommended to use it in kitchens, but it is a great choice for bathroom vanity tops.

Marble is perfect for designing unique countertops as it features a beautiful range of natural colours and shades.

Maintenance

Daily cleaning

We recommend the use of a damp (microfiber) cloth, warm water and, if required, a pH neutral detergent, a slightly alkaline (pH 8-10) or a slightly acidic (pH 4-6) detergent for daily cleaning. Detergents especially designed for the purposes of natural stone maintenance should be preferred. We do not recommend the use of abrasive or very acidic or bleach-containing detergents.

Preventing and removing stains

Marble is a porous and a highly absorbent material which is why the worktop has to be protected against stains. Keep chemicals and corrosives away from the worktop.

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.

Preventing 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.
