Polish Marble Table Singapore
The beauty of marble is something hard to resist and disagree on. Look closer at it and you will find that some looks like there is a whole new world inside, with valleys and rivers while some looks like it has the whole galaxy locked in a stone. Because of its luxurious look and properties, it is widely used as a building material. It is formed when limestone undergo high heat and pressure, while metamorphosis takes place and recrystallize the calcite, changing its texture to a much harder one. Due to the way it is formed, it exists in abundance and can be economically mined.
Ain’t Going Anywhere Soon
Marble is retro, classic and at the same time modern. There is always a place for marble because it blends into any design and material so effortlessly. If having a marble floor is burning too big of a hole in your wallet but you still cannot take your eyes off marble, go for a marble table. It will definitely be the centerpiece of the dining area. Marble tables are not merely tables, it is an investment and with a little care, it can go a long way even to a few decades, so precious that you might want to include it in your will.
A Little Care Goes A Long Way
Originally from a limestone, marble although hard enough to be a building material is still porous to a certain extent. Thus, it is important that when you get your marble table you seal it with a protective sealant to make it more stain resistant. Most marble tables have glossy finish and to achieve that, a layer of chemical sealant which will react with the surface of the marble to form a harder layer is applied. But, although pretty to look at and you might want to do your best to protect it from any scratches, it still has to be put into good use. With that being said, your kids may use it to do their homework or just normal playtime of drawing and crafting. Scratches and stains will definitely be unavoidable since it is hard to explain to a kid why they should not extend their drawing from the paper to the table. You should also be careful when serving food because the heat from food may damage the protective layer, use a layering pad instead, coasters for drinks too. Any stains should be attended immediately using either a dry cloth or a wet cloth with just water only. Do not use any detergent which are acidic because it will cause etching on the marble.
Seal It Today, No Broken Hearts Tomorrow
Marble tables are actually easy to maintain if you constantly remember the two rules, be careful and no acid. But over time with high usage, marble table can still appear dull. If there are no deep irreversible scratches, you can just opt to polish your marble table. Before you start with any marble polishing, you need to make sure that the surface is clean. Always remember to wipe it with PH neutral detergent. Next, you can start to polish your table by using the diamond grinder, one of the best tools so far to achieve the best results. Start with a lower grit if you intend to grind away any scratches, then slowly move on to higher grits to achieve smooth result. Last but not least, to make your polish last longer and give it that mirror like surface, seal it with a layer of stone protector. Your future self will thank you for it. Marble tables should not be polished only when you have scratches or stains which you cannot unsee, it should be done every few years to ensure that it is at tip top condition.
