Real marble has a beautiful, unique look like no other surface, with all their whirling patterns and shade variations. But the same patterns that make marble beautiful can be a real headache to match from tile to tile, says Daniel Dixon, a California-based tile construction expert. To ensure patterns match, the Marble Institute of America recommends having your contractor lay out the tiles over the entire surface before installing so you can approve the result. All your tiles should come from the same original batch.
Marble, like most stone tiles, has high maintenance requirements. It must be sealed and cleaned regularly; for cleaning, use only a mild detergent solution or a product specially designed for marble. Never set your drink down on a marble surface (it will leave a ring) and wipe up any spills immediately as they can stain or etch marble?s porous surface.
Marble floors are gorgeous, elegant and are often the main attraction in fine edifices around the world. In fact, marble is arguably the most salient feature found in the Taj Mahal. The richness of marble makes it attractive to interior designers who select marble as beautiful floor covering, counter tops and accent pieces.
Although Marble is a natural stone and can withstand the test of time, it is composed of calcite and is easily etched or otherwise compromised by strong acids and cleaners. Although Vinegar should never be use on Marble, it has become the all purpose cleaner of choice for many households. Blue Moon provides professional Marble cleaning and guidance for routine daily maintenance.
Our cleaning process is deep and thorough. We get right down to the nooks and crannies of natural stone to ensure that your Marble is truly clean without the aid of harmful chemicals. When you choose us, you are assured of quality workmanship and service.
After cleaning, Marble should always be sealed with a high quality penetrating sealant that will protect natural stone from staining. When Marble is not properly sealed, even condensation from a glass of water can leave a watermark. Blue Moon uses sealants that provide an invisible protectant.
Marble is absolutely beautiful when it has been professionally polished by Blue Moon. The shine may be as brilliant as glass or a matte finish according to your specifications. Whatever your choice, you can trust us to bring out the best in your Marble.
From time to time, Marble can become etched, scratched or compromised in other ways. In order to drill down to the natural beauty of your natural stone, honing may be required. Blue Moon has the expertise required to ensure that this challenging process is executed with precision.
Blue Moon always administers a deep clean to Marble floors prior to any application of a topcoat. Over time, topcoats must be stripped from Marble to remove dirt that cannot be removed with basic cleaning or to refresh topcoat and renew the shine.
At times, Marble can become scratched or grout lines may need refilling. Blue Moon is a great resource for ensuring that your Marble stone is properly repaired. Marble floors receive the greatest of care when serviced by Blue Moon Cleaning & Restoration.
Because it is so absorbent, marble needs special care – it can stain with spillages like liquids or oil, and is sensitive to acids like citrus juices, vinegar or household cleaning chemicals, which can damage its surface. When used externally, it is vulnerable to acid rain or pollutants in the atmosphere, which erode and discolor its surface. But, taking care of your marble as soon as you install it will go a long way toward preserving it. Plus it will save on restoration costs in the long run.
