by | Oct 31, 2014 | Construction and Maintenance

Marble is a metamorphic rock, closely related to base limestone but considered to be more decorative and elegant than limestone. Created in a wide range of lush and sensuous colors, marble outshines and is more sought after than its plainer counterpart, limestone. Even though marble is a much more eye-catching stone, it is actually quite vulnerable and high maintenance.

Marble is susceptible to:


Marble only ranges between 1 and 4 on the MOH scale of hardness. This indicates it has a softer surface making it more liable to be etched by things such as fruit juices soft and drinks.


Marble is porous and sensitive to chemicals. As a result, spilling specific items on it can result in the appearance of stains.

The easiest way to maintain the look, feel, and quality of your marble is to buy a marble repair kit from MB Stone Care and Supply.
