Carrara Marble requires use of Stone Cleaners only. Marble cleaners are available at any hardware store, home improvement center and many supermarkets carry stone cleaners. If installed on the floor, use a soft cleaning pad of vacuum to remove any grit. Next use a cleaner specifically made for marble as regular household products are too harsh, abrasive or contain chemicals that will harm the stone. Regular dish detergent may contain fat/oils, chemicals or dyes that will darken the color and leave a residue.
Carrara Marble needs to be sealed upon installation. Check with your tile setter or fabricator to ensure they have done the sealing. It is an easy process as it will need to be done periodically. It’s an easy procedure that is as simple as evenly distributing the sealer with a soft pad made for sealing. It is essential to clean all dirt and debris before sealing so as to not seal the dirt into the stone.
