CARING FOR YOUR MARBLE WORK SURFACES
The following guidelines are designed to provide you with all that you need to know to ensure that you derive the maximum pleasure and satisfaction from your worktops.
After installation our trained applicators will seal your stone pieces with Lithofin Stain Stop, a proprietary sealer that penetrates the stone and fills the microscopic voids between the crystals, helping to prolong your marble surfaces. This product requires sufficient time to set into the stone so please refrain from allowing any liquids to come into contact with your stone tops for at least 6 hours after application. It is also advised that pets are kept away from the worktops whilst the product is drying.
Marble is susceptible to the aggressive action of acids and alcohol and any sealant only reduces the rate of absorption of these invasive substances. Care should be taken to quickly remove spillages of acidic fruit juice (particularly lemon juice), wine, vinegar and beetroot etc. For instance, the residue of red wine on the base of wineglasses will leave a mark. Nail varnish and any other solvent or oil-based products will stain if not wiped up immediately.
For general cleaning and maintenance of your marble surfaces we provide a Granite & Marble Stone Care Kit.
Our Stone Care Kit – Granite & Marble contains:

In hard water areas it is common for lime scale residue to build up around tap and drainage areas over time. This can be easily prevented by ensuring worktops are cleaned and dried often.
Following these guidelines will ensure good condition of your work surfaces for years to come. If you require any further information, or wish to purchase our Granite & Marble Stone Care Kit please so not hesitate to contact us directly.
