Marble Countertops Care
Marble countertops are renowned for their aesthetic appeal and durability.
Furthermore, marble is available in a wide range of colorful patterns and styles, making it a great decorating material for kitchens.
But with time, the surface of your marble countertop will start looking dull and unsightly, due to acidic or abrasive materials. AndAnd this is where JK Marble comes in. We offer professional marble countertop care & restoration services in Los Angeles, leaving them looking as good as new.
Some of the marble countertop care & restoration services that we offer include:
Marble Stain Removal
Spills from coffee, wine, fruit juices and sauces can penetrate your marble countertop, leaving ugly stains. And if the stain has already penetrated beneath the countertop’s surface, wiping will not remove them.
We can help to remove the stains present on your marble countertop within a few minutes or a few hours, depending on the extent of the stain.
If the stain has already penetrated the deeper layers of the marble, then we can remove it using a method known as a poultice in case the poultice fails to remove the stain, then we can grind the affected area of your marble countertop and then polish it back to its original finish. The stain removal method we will apply will depend on the nature and extent of the stain.
Remove Scratches From Marble
As noted above, marble comes with a soft, porous surface. So, apart from absorbing stains, it can also be easily scratched. These scratches usually happen when you chop vegetables or meat directly on the marble countertop surface.
Scratches will also occur if you drag or slide appliances on the countertop. JK Marble can remove scratches and other imperfections from your marble countertops.
Our scratch removal process involves polishing the marble countertop with high-grit or medium-grit industrial diamond pads. After grinding the surface using the appropriate tool, we will then apply the polishing paste, which will restore your marble countertops to their original shine.
Remove Etch Marks From Countertops
As part of marble countertop care we provide information about how and why your marble countertops etch, Acidic substances like lemon juice, caustic soda, ketchup, fruit juice, and vinegar can etch your marble countertops, leaving white or dull spots. The problem is, ordinary cleaning products can’t remove the etched stains. And that’s why it’s advisable to consult marble countertop restoration professionals like JK Marble.
Our etch removal follows three main processes. First, we will remove the dirt and grime present on the surface of your marble countertops, using a stone cleaner. We will then rinse the surface thoroughly, to remove all the residue.
Second, we will polish marble using marble polishing powder, until all the etched stains have disappeared. Your marble countertop will also be looking shiny at this stage. Third, we will rinse the marble surface again using clean water and then buff it dry using a soft fiber cloth.
Repair Chips On Marble Countertops
Chips can also occur on the edges of your marble countertops. Regardless of the extent of the chipping, we can help to repair them and give your marble countertops a better look.
We repair chipped marble countertops using kitchen-grade or food-grade epoxy. We will also mix the epoxy with various color pigments, to ensure it matches the existing color and pattern.
Repairing chipped marble countertops is a sensitive job that requires a specific set of tools and supplies. While doing it yourself may save you some money, you may end up damaging your marble countertops further. So, let the marble countertop restoration experts at JK Marble do the job, and you can rest assured that you will get value for your money.
Repair Cracks On Marble Countertops
Marble countertops can crack when subjected to hard impacts.
For instance, sitting on a countertop overhang or bumping its corners with heavy furniture may be enough to crack the slab.
And when your marble countertop cracks, replacing it may appear like the best option. So, what happens when you don’t have enough money to replace the entire countertop?
Well, we can repair a cracked marble countertop, so that you don’t have to replace the entire piece.
We can repair and fix hairline cracks, splitting apart or deep breakages in marble countertops. Our repair method will depend on the size of the crack.
Sealing Marble Countertops
Sealing is usually our last process in our marble countertop restoration. Sealing will help to preserve your marble countertops while preventing future damage. Sealing will prevent moisture, staining and molding, thus helping to keep your marble countertops looking shiny, beautiful and elegant.
