Don’t Lose Your Marbles!

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” –Michelangelo

Have you been thinking about new countertops in your kitchen or bathroom? One of your options at Midwest Rock Tops is marble. Marble is often associated with beauty and art, including sculptures to the caliber of Michelangelo.

Marble can be in many different colors:  white, gray, black, red, yellow, green, and pink are among the colors you could choose from. The differences in colors are caused by impurities arranged within the rock. When it is cut, the beauty of marble is enhanced.

While marble countertops would be a beautiful addition to your kitchen or bathroom, it takes some additional care to keep them looking their best. Marble is one of the rocks that is affected by acids and alcohol, causing etching in the stone. If you spill orange juice, coffee, vinegar, wine, soft drinks, or any other acidic or alcoholic substances, you’ll want to wipe it up right away. Professional sealing will help protect your marble countertops, but it’s still recommended to clean up any spills as soon as possible. Make sure you use cleaners specifically designed for natural stone, as other cleaning products may hurt marble.

If you take good care of your countertops, you should never have to replace them. If marble countertops sound like a good fit for you, give us a call!
