Marble on countertops and around sinks in Pittsburgh can easily start to have dark spots that just won’t clean up. This is not caused by hard water, (we hear that a lot) but rather from acidic spills. Many things in our homes are organic acids. Coffee, wine, tea, many shampoos, and even contact solution. Notice in the photo the ring from a coffee mug on the marble. Acids dissolve stone and that’s why you can’t clean off the spot. The marble has been damaged.
The company that sold this stone had told the homeowner it would be impossible to fix the marble without removing the sink and bringing the marble back to the shop. Translation: “we don’t really know how or want to help you”.
It took us only a short time to fix this spot. But best yet, we didn’t just fix it, I taught the housekeeper how to fix the problem. Now she knows what to do if it ever happens again. Yep thats right — when we come and restore your marble we can train you and your cleaning staff how to take care of your marble properly and how to fix minor etching on your marble surfaces.
