Stain Problem in Marble
It was formed millions of years ago by the crystallization of limestone and dolamatic structure as a result of metamorphism. Calcite comes first among the minerals found in marble; small amounts of silica, silica and feldspar may be present. Therefore, each marble can react differently to external factors due to its different mineral structure. Especially lemon, orange, grapefruit, olive oil, etc., which have an acidic effect. products may leave lime-like stains and deformations on the surface of the marble.
In some cases, the reactions seen in the heat exchange of the marble may cause regional deformation. For example, if a hot glass cup of around 90°-100° is placed on a kitchen counter with an average temperature of 5°-10° in the morning, marble, which has a natural structure, can give different reactions. It may leave a white circular mark in the shape of a glass bottom.
Stain Problem Solution on Marble
The most important rule for the solution of the stain problem that may occur after use in marble is to know or estimate the factors that cause the stain. For example, citric acid and oil stains can cause different deformations. In the next stages, it is recommended to get support from professional cleaning companies.
Therefore, before all these external effects occur, the impregnation process, which we call chemical protection, must be performed. After this process, depending on the type of marble (whether it is resistant to stains, whether external factors match the structure of the stone, etc.), protection against stains can be provided.
