Natural stone furniture is captivating, with its distinctiveness, beauty and ruggedness. Despite its robustness, regular care is advisable to keep this attractive material looking good for a long time to come.

Regular cleaning and protective impregnation are recommended to protect the intrinsic beauty of natural stone surfaces from everyday stresses and preserve their luminance. You will find the right products in our online shop.

Granite

is a rugged hard rock composed of feldspar, quartz and mica. Its colours range from light grey to blueish, red and yellowish. Granite is used for flooring both indoors and outdoors and also for kitchen worktops and washbasin shelves. Real granite is heat-resistant, cut-resistant and acid-resistant.
Nevertheless, care is required. If spilled liquids are not mopped up immediately they can penetrate the material and cause unsightly stains.

Marble

Like other limestones, such as Jurassic limestone, marble is one of the acid-sensitive soft rocks.Real marble is a very old, dense crystalline rock, harder than limestone, but not nearly so hard as granite. Colours range from the purest white of Carrara marble through pink, grey and brown to black, according to the kinds of metal oxides intercalated into it. Marble has to be carefully ground or polished to develop its full beauty. Its acid sensitivity makes it very susceptible to staining if not protected. Even the carbonic acid in mineral water can burn the surface. Strong alkalis can also alter the surface properties, so that the surfaces discolour and become dull. Impregnation treatment is therefore strongly recommended for marble furniture.


TIPS ON CARING FOR NATURAL STONE:

If natural stone furniture has a smooth surface, that makes the surface easier to wipe over. So a polished stone table can be cleaned more quickly than one with a coarse-ground surface. But care is required, as polished surfaces are highly sensitive to mechanical stresses. Even the tiniest grains of sand can make visible scratches on polished natural stone surfaces, so the least mark or stain should be removed straight away.

After cleaning it is advisable to carry out effective impregnation, especially on open-pored stone surfaces. This will bring out the structure of the stone again and has the effect of constant impregnation, so that dirt is less likely to penetrate.
