Marble owners love the luxury, luster, and value of marble. But they don’t always know how often they need to service their marble surfaces.
Unfortunately, there’s no single answer to this question. The frequency of service is going to depend on a number of different factors including the size of your marble, how much traffic is gets, and its age and current condition.
Old vs New
Like anything else, older marble typically requires a lot more care and attention than a new marble installation. Like an old car or even a person, when marble ages it becomes more prone to wear and tear, breakdowns, and other age-related problems. A good rule of thumb is this: If you don’t remember the last time you had your marble serviced, it’s probably time to call Love Marble, the tri-state area’s marble experts.
Newer marble requires less frequent attention. But to keep it looking its best, it still needs to be professionally cleaned and polished occasionally — especially if it is located in a public, high-traffic area like a train station or a government building. Some marble surfaces that get walked on by thousands of people daily should be polished at least once per week. And, of course, the higher the traffic the higher the likelihood of problems like chips, cracks, and stains.
Marble is one of the strongest materials on earth, but it still needs care and attention. If it’s been a while since you had your marble surfaces checked out by professionals, give Love Marble a call.
