Caring For Your Ottawa Marble Countertops

Marble countertops are quite popular these days, and caring for them requires specific (but easy) steps.

While Ottawa marble countertops are quite stunning, they are also soft and porous so steps to prevent staining, scratching stained, scratching, and chipping.

Your Ottawa marble countertops from TNT will have an initial sealant sealant.  And your Ottawa marble countertops should have sealant reapplied every year or two.

Regularly Cleaning Your Ottawa Marble Countertops
Regular cleanings of marble countertops should never use anything that contains acid (e.g. vinegar) as it will break down marble countertops’ components. So what do you clean marble with? A baking soda and water mix serves nicely.  Use a soft cloth regularly to dust the marble countertop surface and wash the marble with a cloth dampened with warm water, and, if necessary, a bit of mild dishwashing liquid. Make sure you remove the soap from the marble countertop with a separate damp cloth. Never use dusting sprays or abrasive cleaners on your marble. And you can use marble polish, available at TNT or in hardware stores on a regular basis to maintain the stone’s luster.

Be Smart 
Prevent ring marks by using coasters or trivets under glasses and dishes. Use mats or runners beneath hard objects that might scratch the surface. And always blot spills up immediately and rinse with a clean, damp cloth. If your marble does stain, you can try to remove it with a poultice made especially for drawing out stains.
