Marble Cleaning, Polishing and Removing Discoloration
There are many facets to caring for your marble stone that include commonalities with other stones like granite and quartz. However marbel has special needs that are not required of those types of stone. To simplify the shopping experience, we have created a separate list of products that applies only quartz based natural stones. If you have granite, quartz or another related stone, please look into our
granite and quartz stone care products.
Whether it is a marble counter top or a marble floor or even a marble sculpture that you treasure, Lustro Italiano has a full line of marble care products that are formulated to help you protect the marble surfaces in your home. Let's consider some specific scenarios in which your marble can benefit from our products.
Sealants and Stain Removal
All natural stone should be sealed with a premium grade sealant to protect the pores from invading liquids that can penetrate and discolor marble by either etching the stone, staining the stone, or both etching and staining the marble. Other substances like rust require specific methods of removal that force you to etch the stone in order to remove the stain. It is easy to see why sealing your stone is a wise step to take. But sealants do not last forever. In fact it is recommended that marble be sealed with a premium grade marble sealant every 3 to 5 years to protect it. In the event that your stone has suffered a spill that has resulted in a stain or an etch, the following product list will help you with
marble stain removal and sealing that will protect your marble from future problems.
Recommended Care Program
To sufficiently protect your marble from stains, etches, and dull spots, we recommend the following:
premium marble sealant to the surface of your marble according to the directions on the label. This will form a resistance to foreign and unwanted substances getting into the pores of the stone and creating the discolored spots that we have been discussing.
Once you have properly sealed your marble, use a PH neutral
marble cleaner. Improperly balanced cleaning liquids will breakdown the protective barrier that you worked so hard to apply with the sealant. By using a proper cleaner, you will get the longest wear from the sealant you have protected your marble with.
In addition to the proper cleaner, we recommend our marble polish which contains a sealant. By using this for
polishing your marble once or twice a month you will be maintaining the brilliant shine that marble is known for and gently resealing your marble regularly.
