Maintaining a real marble-top dining table requires some care to ensure its longevity and beauty. Here are some tips specifically tailored for ARV Furniture’s marble-top dining tables:

Clean Spills Immediately: Marble is porous and can easily absorb liquids, leading to stains. Wipe up any spills immediately with a soft, damp cloth to prevent staining.

Use Mild Cleaners: When cleaning your marble table, avoid harsh chemicals and acidic cleaners as they can damage the surface. Instead, use a mild detergent or a specially formulated marble cleaner. Dilute the cleaner with water and apply it with a soft cloth, then rinse thoroughly.

Avoid Abrasive Cleaners: Scrubbing with abrasive cleaners or scrubbing pads can scratch the surface of the marble. Stick to soft cloths or sponges for cleaning.

Regular Dusting: Marble surfaces can collect dust, so it’s essential to dust your dining table regularly with a soft cloth or microfiber duster. This prevents dust buildup and maintains the table’s appearance.

Use Coasters and Placemats: To prevent scratches, rings, and heat damage, always use coasters, placemats, or trivets under glasses, plates, and hot dishes. This helps protect the marble surface from direct contact with potentially damaging materials.

Re-seal as Needed: Depending on usage, you may need to reseal your marble table periodically to maintain its protective layer. Sealants help prevent staining and moisture absorption. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for re-sealing intervals.

Avoid Sharp Objects: Sharp objects like knives or keys can scratch the marble surface, so be mindful of what you place on the table and avoid dragging items across it.

Protect from Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the marble to fade or discolor over time. If possible, position your dining table away from direct sunlight or use curtains or blinds to diffuse sunlight.

Regular Maintenance Inspections: Periodically inspect your marble table for any signs of damage or wear. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage.

Professional Maintenance: For deep stains or damage beyond your control, consider consulting a professional marble restoration service. They can polish, reseal, or repair your marble table to restore its original beauty.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your ARV Furniture marble top dining table remains stunning and functional for years to come.
