How does marble become damaged and how to fix it

How does marble become damaged?

If you have marble in your home you know how easily it can be damaged. Whether it is in your bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom your marble is always at risk. There are some common mistakes that can be avoided though.

Your bathroom counter top for example, can suffer damage from a curling iron or flat iron that is laid down while still hot. Think about all the things that are used in a bathroom such as razors, hair barrettes, and cans of shaving cream for example. All of these products can and will damage your marble if not handled properly.

What about in your kitchen? This is a war zone; you have everything from hot pots and pans to sharp knives and cheese graters. Beware of what cleaning products you use as well. In order to disinfect your kitchen you may use harsh products, so always check that they are safe first.

These are a few things you can try to avoid, but in day to day life it may prove tough. If your marble does become so damaged you don’t feel you can fix it yourself, don’t wait to call a marble restorationcompany such as Classic Marble. The longer you wait the more damage that will be done and the harder it will be to fix.
