Italian Marble in Custom Built Homes

The process of veneering marble to be used in surfaces has increased in popularity over the years. The
primary reason for this is the fact that it is cost-efficient, since thin slabs of marble are only used to
make a surface appear entirely made of marble.

Marble veneer is often seen in countertops and marble furniture but it can also be applied in walls. The
fact that it is still marble although a thin slab is used is the reason why proper caring and maintenance
should be observed. You cannot just use any type of cleaner as this may cause the surface to corrode,
discolor, scratch and etch.

If you have veneers or walls made from marble cladding, it is important to know the right way to clean
it. However, if a need for replacement arrives due to extreme damage, call Marvelous Marble Design
Inc in San Diego at 1-888-272-0630.

Things you need to prepare:

  • Ammonia / Hydrogen peroxide
  • Bucket
  • Cotton cloth/ball
  • Lint-free towel
  • Mild soap
  • Nylon brush
  • Soft cloth

Cleaning Instructions

  • Mix warm water and mild soap in a bucket.
  • Use a soft cloth, a light brush or a sponge in the bucket and start scrubbing the marble surface.
  • Make sure that dirt, residue and other elements are removed.
  • After making sure that everything is clean, clean off the soap by dipping another cloth in clean
  • water. Wash the surface and make sure that soap residue is thoroughly removed.
  • Dry the marble surface with the lint-free cloth

For extreme stains, use ammonia or hydrogen peroxide. Dip the cotton ball in the solution and work
your way on the stains. Immediately wipe the area with a damp clean cloth in order to prevent the stain
from drying out. Again, use a lint-free cloth to completely dry the surface.
