In today’s fast paced world, everyone craves a space to relax and unwind. Nothing speaks ‘sanctuary’ more than a luxurious bubble bath or a long hot shower to wash away life’s stresses in a beautiful bathroom at the end of the day.
Frequently specified by architects and designers, stone such as marble, limestone and granite are often on the ‘must have’ list of luxury finishes when creating today’s on trend interiors.
As luxurious as these surfaces are, toothpaste, perfumes, make-up, soaps, shampoo and conditioners all play a part in damaging these precious, highly sought after surfaces. Even reconstituted stone in these high use, chemically laden areas can suffer, becoming dull over time.
Once cleaned and restored, we highly recommend that porous stones such as marble be sealed on bathroom vanities and walls.
Once stone surfaces are correctly sealed, not only is cleaning simplified by reducing the amount of mould, dirt and soap scum build up, but liquids are prevented from penetrating into the surface of the stone avoiding staining and discolouration.
While sealing stone vanities is important to prevent exposure to chemicals, sealing marble showers is also crucial. As the shower is one of the most heavily used surfaces in the household, being in frequent contact with soaps, shampoos and cleaners that can rapidly deteriorate the stone surface, protection of stone in this area will assist in maintaining the aesthetics, integrity and longevity of your selected stone finish.
Whether your stone surface has a polished, shiny finish or a honed, matte finish, to ensure your bathrooms are always looking on point, contact Mirror Image Marble to clean away the stains, repair chips and cracks and protect your stone investment for years to come.
