Our high-quality Carrara marble is quarried in northern Tuscany, Italy, and is renowned for its gorgeous natural grain, veins, colour and tone – with no two pieces exactly alike. As a porous, natural stone, marble is delicate and prone to staining, scratching and chipping – so proper protection and care are paramount.
The first step in maintaining your marble’s stunning good looks is regular sealing, at least once a year, using a purpose-built product. We recommend the self-applying Guardsman Stone Seal & Protect, which is available from our showrooms and online, and is made to protect porous surfaces like marble against stains and etching.
The next step is to use runners, placemats, felt mats and coasters to avoid contact with anything hot, cold, sticky or moist, including acidic substances such as coffee, wine, juice and tomato sauce – marble’s worst enemies. It’s also important to keep candles and hot pans etc away from your marble table to avoid marking, and to not drag hard objects across the tabletop to avoid scratching.
We recommend frequent dusting with a soft, dry cloth.
