Stone maintenance isn’t something that the average American considers regularly. But if you’re a homeowner and have natural stone features inside or in your backyard, there is a certain level of upkeep required for natural stone to keep its luster. From your countertops inside—kitchen or bathroom—the tiling around your tub, natural stone ascents, and anything tiled around an outdoor pool, the type of maintenance varies. For example, one of the major considerations for your kitchen counters is the fact that stone materials like marble are naturally porous, so it is important to make sure to maintain your natural stone countertops and make sure to have things resealed every X years.
Benefits of Natural Stone
Okay, so there is a bit of upkeep involved with natural stone countertops, floors, etc., but there are some benefits. For starters, marble can accent a home beautifully. Also, it might be the best fit for the base aesthetics of your home décor.
But beyond that, we’ve established that natural stone is porous—and there is a massive benefit to that quality. Because of its nature, stone is easy to restore or repair. It is malleable because it can soften. This means that scratches and chips can be smoothed over and polished down.
