Marble Polishing When is the time right?

Today, we are able to easily  erase away the dullness and scratches that comes eventually especially in high traffic areas of the Marble.  How ever this material is soft and porous and easily scratched if not sealed properly when installed. Counter tops that are also all the rage in today’s designs, can become stained and scratched also.  Proper maintenance of these surface by cleaning properly every day and especially if there is anything spilled on the surface that could stain, it should be cleaned up immediately. To Clean on a daily basis, wipe with a clean, soft cloth after wetting with warm water and a gentle detergent.  Acidic liquids, such as citrus juices can easily scratch Marble.  They must be blotted up as soon as possible.  Even a diligent house keeper will find that the Marble surface will need a professional polishing and sealing.
