HOW TO MAINTAIN THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF MARBLE AND GRANITE

With proper care, your marble and granite products will always look beautiful and new year after year. If looked after correctly, stone is one of the easiest to maintain.


There are 3 key steps to maintaining the natural beauty of marble and granite:


  1. PREP CLEANING 
  2. SEALING 
  3. OCCASIONAL CLEANING

Follow these simple pointers to maintain the beauty of your marble and granite.
 

1) PREP CLEANING


Floors, Walls and Table Tops:

Simply wipe with clean water and a cloth to remove any dust or dirt from your stone. Excessively dirty table tops and floors should be wiped with a marble detergent diluted in water followed by rinsing thoroughly with clean water. Buffing with a dry wool felt pad (without wax) will help to remove water spots.
 

2) SEALING

  • - ‘KR33’, ‘Everclean’, ‘Rainstop’, ‘lmperston’ sealers have been designed to penetrate even the smallest pores in marble and granite surfaces. When applied to the surface, it penetrates deeply into the pores and slowly expands thus partially sealing the surface.
  • Apply three (3) coats. 
  • Place first coat and wait 15 mins later before applying the second coat. Apply the third and final coat an hour after this. 
  • After 3 hours use a woollen pad to polish the surface vigorously (floors or kitchen tops)
  • Sealing should occur every few years.


3) OCCASIONAL CLEANING


Once the surface is sealed all you have to do is routinely give it a quick wipe with a cloth and clean water. This is your guide to preserving the beauty of your marble or granite installation.


Floors, Walls and Table Tops:

Periodic wiping with clean water and a cloth is generally sufficient to keep your marble tile installation looking like new. Dirty floors should be wiped with a marble detergent diluted in water followed by rinsing thoroughly with clean water. Buffing with a dry wool felt pad (without wax) will help to remove water spots.


CAUTION:

Strong detergents, corrosive liquids, or scouring powders can dull the polished marble/granite surface and should not be used. Spilled liquids should be dried up immediately before they penetrate the surface of the marble. If the liquid had been absorbed, the surface can be restored to its original beauty by following these procedures.
