How to Polish Marble Countertops, Red Bank, New Jersey

When designing or renovating their kitchen or bath, many homeowners are drawn to the beauty of natural stone countertops. In particular, marble is easy to shape, catches the light beautifully, and comes in a variety of colors and patterns to match any palette. However, despite its durability, even marble requires proper care to stay in good shape. Here’s why you should be polishing your natural stone countertops, as well as some tips for doing so correctly. 

Why Polish Marble Countertops? 

Marble is actually quite porous and soft for stone, which is why it’s popular amongst sculptors. However, when it’s used as a surface with heavy traffic like a kitchen countertop, it can accumulate scratches, staining, and dents quite easily.

The fewer imperfections on the surface, the less your countertops will be susceptible to more damage. Polishing also helps increase the marble’s density, making it more resistant to scraping and staining. Also, it makes the material easier to clean.  

How to Polish Marble Countertops

First, make sure the surface is completely clean, washed, and dry. Next, use a polishing compound and a felt polishing tool or clean cloth to work the compound in. Don’t press too hard when polishing, as the compound should do most of the work.

Afterward, seal the countertops. First, use a dry or damp cloth to remove the polishing compound completely. Then, the next day, apply the sealer with a clean cloth or soft bristle brush. Once the sealer dries, your marble countertops will look like new.
