Marble Is A Versitle Natural Stone

Marble is a versatile natural stone which has been used for centuries in homes to create a luxurious and unique look. Because marble is a natural stone, there are variations in the color of each tile. Many homeowners like this, as it creates a unique, one-of-a-kind design, while others prefer a more consistent look, like ceramic tile. Marble is an exquisite mineral that differs from most other stones since it is extremely porous. For example, it allows dirt and stains to set in and be retained far more easily than denser stones. For this reason, marble cannot withstand harsh cleaning mediums, especially with using heavy detergents and acids. One of the best ways of maintaining a marble tile’s overall clean and appealing look is to clean it lukewarm, quite hot water, a soft cloth and an occasional wiping down it with milder, non-abrasive industrial detergents. The marble tile must be thoroughly wiped dry after cleaning.
