Marble is a fascinating material, so much so that it is used throughout the construction industry in many different forms. Marble is often associated with the thoughts of lavish mansions and only for the elite, but over the last couple of decades, it has really become more common and accessible.
A Little Bit About Marble
Despite the beauty of marble, it has its own inherent weaknesses. It is a substance that is structurally related to limestone, and although marble has some significant metamorphic changes when compared to limestone, it still has a high porosity. This means that if any liquids are spilled on a marble surface, the marble can and will absorb the liquids. This will result in a dark staining in that particular area of marble which is difficult to remove.
To prevent this from happening, all marble surfaces should be sealed by a marble sealer specialised for this type of surface. This effectively provides a barrier between the marble and any spilled liquids, preventing them from being absorbed into the marble. A marble sealer can also prevent superficial damage to the marble which would have otherwise occurred through physical or chemical exposure.
