About Marble Tile
How Marble Is Created
Have you ever wondered how marble is created? Marble is a metamorphic rock that is created when high pressure and heat touch limestone. It then recrystallizes into a denser rock making it perfect for use in sculptures, backsplash tile in the kitchen, or bathroom countertops to name a few. Other minerals that are in the limestone help to create the unique characteristics within the marble such as its color and pattern.
Where can Marble be used?
Marble can be used in a variety of places and can add a ton of character and charm to both home and office spaces. It can be used as a flooring option, as well as for countertops, backsplash, and even tile inside of your showers! The one thing to keep in mind for the location of marble is what substances will be surrounding it. Areas where the marble can come in contact with acidic substances should be used with high caution or if possible, avoided. Acidic substances that come into contact with marble can cause stains and while stains can be removed, it is best to reduce the probability of stains occurring.
How do you clean marble tile?
To keep your marble in top-notch condition, be sure to regularly remove dirt and buildup with a damp cloth, soft bristled broom or a vacuum. If cleanup is not completed on a regular basis, the dirt and debris can create small scratches that can lead to more noticeable larger scratches over time. Even if your marble is sealed, you do not want to take any chances. Never clean with vinegar, acidic store bought cleaners or bleach as it will eat away at the surface over time ruining the elegant appearance of your marble.
Temperature of Tile
When looking for tile in San Marcos CA, there is a huge advantage that comes with incorporating marble into your flooring specifically. Not only is it much easier to keep clean but it will also help keep the space cooler during those hot summer days. Do you happen to live in an area where you have cold weather more frequently? No worries, all you have to do is install radiant heat or simply place rugs where you want to feel warmth during those cooler times!
