Routine cleaning with a soft sponge or cloth and a non-abrasive cleaner is all that is normally needed to give many years of trouble free service to your cultured marble products.
We recommend cleaning agents in the form of multi-purpose spray or liquid varieties such as Fantastic, Formula 409, or Mr. Clean that are common in the household cleaning section of most stores.
To maintain luster and make cleaning easier, periodic applications of paste wax may be applied. Mild abrasives such as automotive polishing compound will remove simple scratches and stains.
Periodic applications of a product such as Gel-Gloss can remove small scratches and will also shine the cultured marble surface. Gel-Gloss can be purchased from your local hardware store. Please see www.gel-gloss.com for further information.
Hard water build up and rust stains can be removed with a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar, followed by a fine polishing compound.
Mold and mildew can be removed with a diluted solution of chlorine bleach and water or with Lysol. Never let pure bleach come in contact with your marble. Hair dye and shoe polish can be removed by using polishing compound.
Minor surface scratches can be buffed out with a polishing compound. A professional cultured marble service technician should repair deeper scratches and all other major damage such as surface cracks and chips.
