Most natural stone countertops, as can be seen are naturally resistant to staining and scratching in varying degrees. The importance of regular sealing and polishing though cannot be undermined. Regular sealing of the natural stone countertops will ensure that the resistance properties of the natural stone countertop remain with it forever.
Marble does have some distinct drawbacks as a countertop material. For starters, marble is a much softer stone than granite, so it has a greater tendency to scratch and mar than granite countertops. Additionally, polished marble is vulnerable to etching when acidic liquids are invariably spilled on it. These spots and marks can destroy the finish of your countertop; you can avoid this issue by choosing a honed finish in place of a polished finish, but most homeowners prefer the appearance of polished marble. Finally, marble is a porous, absorbent stone, meaning it tends to stain. While some homeowners like the patina their marble countertops develop over the years, many do consider it a drawback.
Marble countertops are the softest version of natural stone countertops. They can be stained or soiled easily. Keep your marble countertops away from any oil or juice stain! Frequent polishing and sealing of the marble countertops though can keep away any permanent staining. It must be noted that marble countertops cannot withstand permanent stains or scratches.
