Calacatta Surface Maintenance:

Sealing

Calacatta is a porous Marble stone which can absorb liquids and stains. To protect it, it's crucial to apply a high-quality marble sealer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the sealer's application and reapplication schedule.

Cleaning

Use a soft, damp cloth or sponge to clean the marble surface regularly. Avoid abrasive or acidic cleaners as they can damage the Marble's surface and reduce its appeal by etching it.

Avoid Acidic Substances

Calacatta slab is sensitive to acidic substances like vinegar, lemon, and similar other citrus juices. Clean up spills immediately and avoid using acidic cleaners to prevent etching.

Blot Spills

If a spill occurs, blot it immediately rather than wiping it, as wiping can spread the liquid and potentially lead to stains.

Use Mild Cleaners

When cleaning, use a pH-neutral or mild dish soap diluted with water. Harsh chemicals can damage the Marble's finish.

Avoid Scratches

Calacatta marble is relatively soft compared to other stones, so avoid dragging or sliding heavy objects across the surface, as this can scratch the Marble.

Use Cutting Boards

Always use cutting boards when working with knives or other sharp objects to prevent scratching.Using chopping boards on your marble counters will ensure that your countertops remain looking newer for a longer period of time.
