Master bath with marble shower


  • have your natural stone treated with an appropriate sealant before use.
  • wipe up spills as quickly as possible to avoid damage and staining.
  • use trivets or mats under hot dishes and cookware.
  • use a cutting board to avoid scratching the surface.
  • place a small rug or mat at entrances to trap dirt and sand from normal foot traffic.
  • sweep up sand and dirt daily to prevent scratching.
  • use coasters under glasses especially if they contain citrus or acidic fluids.
  • use neutral PH Cleaning agents to maintain and protect your stone surfaces. See list of recommended products.
  • call us for a technical evaluation if you require assistance.
  • have stains and scratches professionally removed soon after they become noticeable.
  • use a squeegee on shower interiors after every use to prevent staining, mildew and calcium build-up.


  • wait to clean up spills.
  • try to remove stains with vinegar, ammonia or other abrasive household cleaners.
  • hire an amateur to install natural stone floors.  A poor installation can result in an expensive and time-consuming restoration where excess lippage must be removed through extensive grinding.
  • leave cosmetic containers on top of granite or marble vanities, since prolonged exposure to moisture can damage the finish.
