Marble is a hard crystalline metamorphic form of limestone, which renders an elegant look for the interior and exterior of your home. Marble is highly preferred by home interior decorators because it has a unique charm and rich appeal to it. People use marble in their showers, countertops and flooring. However, it is very porous and retains moisture, causing mold, mildew and stain to take place. Soft drinks, such as coke and juices comprise of acidic acid, etch marble. If the stone is not restored with the correct products, then it is nothing short of a burden for your home or business. Your stone is at risk of etching, if it has not been sealed. Without cleaning and sealing marble, your stone will lose its elegance. So now that you have got your answer to the question whether should marble be sealed or not, lets see the right way to do it.
Common Mistakes People Make While Sealing Marble:
- Many contractors use water based sealers for your marble as they are available at inexpensive price and are easy to apply. These cheap quality products peel and wear off the stone in just a few months and allow moisture to stain it.
- Sometimes, people seal marble tile without sealing grout. Sealing marble tile before grouting will make the stained grout look dirty and it will ruin the look of the entire surface.
- Some people do not remove the marble etching from the surface before sealing. You need to remove all the stains, mold and etching using high-quality cleaners.
