Marble Insights

Marble is classified as a metamorphic rock, which simply means that it started out as one kind of rock and through time, intense pressure and immense heat, it ended up as a different kind of rock. In the case of marble, it starts out as limestone, which is a soft stone composed mostly of calcite. Under extreme heat and pressure conditions, the calcite crystals recrystallize and bond together, changing the texture of the stone.
Marble has been used for thousands of years as a building material for some of the world’s most beautiful and important structures. The Taj Mahal in India, Tower of Pisa in Italy, the Parthenon in Greece, and the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington D.C. are all built with marble and they all have withstood the tests of time and the elements.

Marble Care and Maintenance

Marble Repair

Do you have chipped marble tiles? Are there cracks in your floor or countertop? What about broken marble tiles? Before you replace your marble, consider having us provide expert marble repair services. MarbleKare USA can fill holes in marble, fix marble cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing to match the finish on the rest of your marble floor, countertop, or other stone surface.

Marble Stain Removal

MarbleKare can remove marble stains, as well as marble discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself (see our Interactive Stain Management App) or want MarbleKare to treat your marble, we are here for you.

Marble Honing and Polishing

Does your marble have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches, or spots? We can hone your marble surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new marble surface, free of damage. 

With our marble polishing services, our expert technicians can produce a level of luster that meets your needs, from a beautiful soft matte look that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth to a high glass-like polish.

Lippage Removal/Grinding

Are your marble floor tiles uneven? Do you want your floor tile flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? MarbleKare USA can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the-art diamond grinding technology. 

Marble Sealing & Protecting

Your marble may need a little extra protection to inhibit staining.

Some natural stone types are more porous than others and the more porous the natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. 

We may recommend you have us seal your marble to enhance its stain resistance. We say,” MAY” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventive measure against stain damage because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.

Ongoing Maintenance

Does Marble Need Ongoing Maintenance?

The short answer is yes, marble does require maintenance. Regular cleaning with a stone safe cleaner is a great for simple day-to-day maintenance, but over time, floors can develop grout lines that just won’t come clean, shiny scratches, and increasingly obvious traffic patterns. Countertops can become scratched, dull and etched.

As these problems develop, you become more and more dissatisfied with the appearance of the floors or other marble surfaces until it’s time to have them completely restored. Ask us about customizing a regularly scheduled maintenance program to keep your marble looking great all the time.
