Marble is a natural product, which means that it is porous, so if they aren’t sealed stains and moisture can soak into the stone.
Our Marble table tops are supplied with a fluorocarbon treatment already applied. This provides anti-dust, water resistance, UV protection, and wear resistance from cleaning and brushing. Over time, however, this treatment will wear off.
We recommend re-sealing the table top with an outdoor marble sealer within three months of purchase, and then every 6-12 months after that. To help prevent staining, spills should be cleaned immediately.
For regular cleaning, simply wipe with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of abrasive cleaners or products containing acids, vinegar or citrus juice.
With age, the table’s appearance will take on a weathered look. Tiny cracks, acicular holes in the stone, and colour oxidisation are common occurrences with daily use, but these do not impact on the quality or life of the product and should be embraced as part of the table’s unique character.
To protect the table’s surface, use table mats or placemats for any hot items.
Like all outdoor furniture, these products will keep their new appearance longer if they are protected from the elements when not in use. We recommend using a protective cover.
