Water Damage On Marble
Marble is a beautiful stone, but it can be hard to keep looking good. The weather and everyday wear-and tear have been known as the main causes for staining on your flooring material due water from spilled drinks or wet shoes that get tracked into house after being outside all day long!
While marble is quite durable, it can absorb water/moisture due to its porosity, and if the water is rainwater (which is often slightly acidic), marble may suffer significant deterioration if not maintained.
As marble is highly susceptible to acid, the loss of polish and detail is usually significant, and these are the most typical signs of weathering, especially a dull or dull surface.
If your marble has become stained, we can help you clean and polish it so that it looks new again. We will also work to protect your marble so that future stains can be avoided.

Other Liquids That Can Damage Marble
Water isn’t the only enemy! Oils, dyes/inks also can leave stains if not treated, obviously the depth of penetration will depend on a few different things, like for example the finish on the stone and the amount of time the oil is left on the marble, however, the longer you leave it on the marble the deeper the stain will be and the harder it will be for us to remove the stain.
For this reason, as soon as you notice any sort of spill, it’s important to take care of it right away! The best way to do this is to use a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess liquid and then blot the area with a wet cloth.
If the stain is more difficult, you can try using a mild soap and water solution. You should avoid using any harsh chemicals or cleaners as they can damage the stone. If you are unsure about how to clean the stain, please contact us and we would be happy to help you.
Another common stain you’ll find on marble is rust. These stains are reddish-orange and are caused by the oxidation (rusting) of iron. Water penetrating bad joints or cracks can activate or accelerate the rusting. If the rust is only on the surface of the stone it will be easily removed with a cloth or some abrasive pads, however, if it’s within the marble itself it will be much harder to remove the stain completely. In this case, you may want to consider repolishing or rehoning the marble.
