I purchased a bathroom vanity from HomeGranite.com a while ago and just love it. Hope you can help with a problem I am having with marble that I have in another bathroom on the shower floor with a honed finish & counters that are polished. There are some dulled spots on the polished counters where cleaning solution has left marks. On the honed shower, the finish has either come off or it is completely stained with white. Can you give me an idea of how to deal with this. May we call you and if so, a phone number please. Thanks for any help you can give – Bonnie
The marble in your shower and on your other countertop have been etched by the chemicals used to clean them. Marble is a Calcium Carbonate based rock which is sensitive to even mild acids and chemicals. You need to stop using those cleaners and have the marble professionally refinished if the damage is too aesthetically displeasing. Remember to use a penetrative marble sealer after the surfaces are refinished. My overall recommendation is to use a marble cleaner in the shower, then seal it after it dries. For the countertop, have it re-polished and then seal it.
