Maintenance marble table

Zo blijft jouw tafel het mooist

The great thing about marble is, in addition to the beautiful print, that this material lasts a lifetime. That means that when you buy a marble table top, you get a sustainable piece of design. At Table du sud, the marble is treated with an agent that provides the open structure with a protective layer. However, some care in the use and maintenance of marble remains important.

   
 

Maintenance


Regular cleaning is important to keep the marble beautiful. First of all, make sure you have the right cleaning products at hand. You can order a special marble spray via our website. Marble is sensitive to scratches, so do not use scouring pads and aggressive cleaning agents. For effective cleaning you need the following items:

- A bucket of lukewarm water
- A soft cloth or sponge (no scouring sponge)
- Green soap, soda or a special marble cleaner
- Clean water
- A dry cloth or chamois

   
 
 

Roadmap


1. Make soapy water using green soap, baking soda or marble cleaner. Rather use too little than too much detergent! If you use too much green soap, a thin greasy layer will remain on the marble. Dirt and dust can adhere more easily to this, so that the marble will become dirty more quickly.
2. First try on an inconspicuous place to ensure that the soap does not stain.
3. Then carefully clean the marble with soapy water and a cloth or sponge. Do not rub too hard to avoid scratches. Wipe the surface in a circular motion.
4. Wipe the marble with clean water, so that no traces of the cleaning agent you use are left behind.
5. Dry the marble thoroughly with a dry cloth or chamois.



USE


Because marble is a porous natural stone, you can easily get stains and circles in it. In particular, marble is quickly damaged by acidic liquids such as vinegar, lemon juice and orange juice. This is because the acid attacks the lime that makes up the marble. Black coffee can also leave circles. As with many things, prevention is better than cure. So make sure you have a stack of nice coasters ready for under your cups and glasses.

 
 
 
 


REMOVE STAINS
Did you cause a stain on a marble surface? Then it is most important that you act immediately and do not let the stain be absorbed. To remove stains you need the following:

- Clean water
- Natural cleaning agent, such as baking soda
- Plastic or cling film
- A soft cloth or sponge (no scouring sponge)
- A dry cloth or chamois
- A little patience

ROADMAP
1. Wet the stain with water.
2. Make a paste of clean water and baking soda. You can also make a paste from water, flour and mild dish soap.
3. Cover the stain with the paste and cover it with a piece of plastic or cling film.
4. Let the paste absorb for at least 24 hours and then remove it with a wet cloth.
5. Dry well with a dry cloth or chamois.

Tip 1: You can carefully try to remove a stubborn stain with a little hydrogen peroxide. Just don't try this on dark marble as it can discolour.

Tip 2: Cover a grease stain with corn starch that you leave for 20 minutes. The flour absorbs the fat, so you can easily wipe it away. It is possible that the marble is still affected by acids. Unfortunately, this cannot always be prevented.

SCRATCHES
Once there is a scratch in the marble, it is not so easy to remove it. Small, superficial scratches are often less visible when you clean the marble as we described above.

Is there a deeper scratch in the marble? Then you can try to remove the scratch with very fine sandpaper. Be careful not to make extra scratches!
