Marble is an elegant stone that forms when limestone is exposed to extreme heat and pressure. This results in a dense rock that displays attractive veining through a background of various colors. Marble has been used from early times to sculpt statues and create various design features in public and private buildings. Marble is not as hard as granite or porcelain and its porous surface can easily be stained or etched by acidic liquids, so the surface should be sealed to help prevent staining. Since marble can also be stained by standing water, kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities and shower surrounds should be wiped with a dry cloth after use.
Preserving the beauty of marble floor tiles requires conscientious floor cleaning to remove dirt and grit that could scratch the highly polished surface. In spite of the best efforts of a homeowner, their marble floors will occasionally need to be touched up with the techniques used for natural stone polishing. The process of polishing marble floors should only be done by professionals because the natural stone can be damaged if the proper techniques are not used.
