Considerations When Installing Marble FloorsMarble is a natural stone and all natural stone materials have porous surfaces. This makes marble susceptible to damage from a variety of stains and spills. In order to offset this, a new installation of marble should be treated with both a below surface sealer and a surface finishing treatment. This will serve to clog the pores in the material, while also creating an invisible layer over it.
Maintenance will require the reapplication of the surface sealing treatment every 6 to 12 months depending on the level of traffic in the space.
