Care & Maintenance
Marble needs the most care and maintenance between granite and quartz. There are steps to take to ensure the beauty of your marble slab. Marble is not scratch resistant; use a cutting board when slicing and dicing. Marble is not heat resistant and the marble can be burned or scorched; when using a hot pan protect your marble with a hot pad. Marble is not stain resistant, and most of the time when there is a spill it will soak into the marble right away to make clean-up difficult. When cleaning your marble, use warm water or clear soap.
Yes, marble is used in many kitchens and looks beautiful. Keep in mind marble is much softer than granite and quartz. Although typical application of marble is for the bathroom vanity tops, Jacuzzi tops and fireplaces, it is possible to use it in the kitchen. However, due to the fact that it is easy to scratch and is affected by acidic substances, such as vinegars, ketchups etc, we don’t usually recommend it. Moreover, the high-gloss of the marble countertop can be partially lost as many chemicals etch its surface.
