Marble restoration, cleaning and polishing services
Marble is elegant, versatile and hard-wearing and no longer exclusively for the wealthy. Many people’s homes now have the luxury of marble in the form of a kitchen worktop, a fireplace or even an entrance hall. It is also quite normal now to see the reception areas of company head offices and hotels adorned with the classical beauty of marble. However, like any other surface, it needs a bit of loving attention occasionally to keep it looking beautiful and to ensure its longevity.
While marble is hard wearing, it is also absorbent. This means spillages could stain, while anything that’s acidic can actually do some damage by dissolving the material makeup of the marble. Used externally, it’s vulnerable to air-based pollutants and has even been known to ‘warp’. Unfortunately, marble is also potentially quite likely to be damaged if it’s used in a high-traffic area. Equally, marble can get scratched easily.
Preserve marble’s natural beauty with regular cleaning
The good news is that regular marble polishing will guarantee its preservation. Giving it a good clean every few years will also help in keeping it looking nice and prevent the build-up of too much polish on its surface. This will save money in the long-term as otherwise it might have to be a complete restoration job to get it looking its pristine best again.
If you’ve tried to do marble polishing yourself using our “How to clean marble” guide, you’ll know just how hard it can be to get good results without specialist training or equipment. Marble restoration really is one of those jobs that is best left to the professionals.
Durable, heat-resistant and versatile, marble is an ideal material for a natural stone fireplace that will look seriously stunning while adding some hefty value to your property. A fireplace is always, of course, a strong focal point that will set off any room to perfection.
You don’t need fancy equipment top keep yours looking its best. Clean the surface with a cloth soaked in warm (not scalding) water, having added a regular mild detergent. Work from the bottom upwards, using circular motions, to avoid streaking. Rinse with a sponge and clean water, before drying with an absorbent cloth.
It’s also a good idea to seal your fireplace before you first use it, to protect the stone.
At Royal Stone Care, we provide a specialist marble restoration service fireplaces, and can also seal, polish and repair these structures, taking professional care of anything that’s more than just a daily clean.
A marble countertop may be more affordable than you realised, especially when compared with other types of natural stone. And its longevity and resistance to heat make it a smart choice for kitchen countertops. (The stone’s coolness makes it ideal for rolling out pastry.) Marble also resists scratching, breaking and cracking better than some of the alternative materials on the market.
Meanwhile, its sheen adds a dash of genuine elegance to a room. What’s more, there’s a wide range of different colours and patterns, with each piece of stone unique thanks to the different minerals in the original limestone. And trapped impurities create the distinctive, beautiful veining.
