Marble tile is a natural stone material that is millions of years old. Geologically Marble is a limestone that has re-crystallized through the action of heat and pressure (metamorphism) while still retaining properties of the original material. Our expert craftsmen at Creative Tile have years of experience in handling and working with these beautiful stones, making each work a master creation.
There are so many different materials to choose from when it comes to flooring, so why choose ceramic or porcelain tile? To begin with, Marble has been long recognized as the most versatile choice in home décor. Marble is clean and easily maintained with unlimited workability allowing for a varied range of patterns and a multitude of colors with some type of veining running through it. The veins are usually different in color than the main color of the stone. Marble is relatively soft when compared to other stones such as granite. It will scratch very easily and is also very sensitive to acidic chemicals. Marble is used to produce magnificent tile floors, kitchen Countertops, Marble Bathroom Vanities, Tile Floors, Marble Wall Tile and even columns.
Cons for Using Marble Tile
Marble requires some care and attention in order to maintain its original luster and appearance. Many stone tiles including marble are porous in nature, excessive water may cause reactions such as oxidation, staining, deterioration, etc. Special impregnating or penatrating sealers are recommended to avoid these problems. We always apply sealers to any marble applications. To clean marble surfaces, warm water, mild dishwashing liquid and a soft cloth can be used. Marble is especially susceptible to damage from citric acids, alcohols, and oils. Vinegar is acidic and will leave a dull spot on marble. Avoid the following acidic materials from coming in contact with your marble: Vinegar, lemon, tomato and tomato sauce, bleach, coffee, urine, vomit, tile cleaners, X-14, toilet bowl cleaners, and cleaners with lemon. Let the professionals at Creative Tile assist you in choosing the proper products for cleaning and maintaining marble. With proper care, your Marble's beauty will last for generations.
