How to clean a marble fireplace?
While marble is durable, it is also a porous material, so it can stain. It’s important that any spill is wiped up immediately, and it should be cleaned regularly.
Here are some tips for cleaning your marble fireplace:
- Use warm water, ideally distilled water, and a soft cloth, such as a microfibre cloth.
- Regularly rinse the cloth to keep it clean.
- Scrub out any stains if possible.
- Dry the marble with a second cloth to prevent water stains.
- Be cautious using cleaners, and avoid vinegar as the acid could affect the finish of the marble.
- Seek expert advice if a stain won’t come out of the marble; depending on the material that caused the stain, there may be a specific agent that can be used to clean the marble, such as a PH neutral detergent.
How to repair a marble fireplace?
While there are do-it-yourself kits available to repair small cracks or chips in marble, it’s best to contact our experts with advice on how to repair your marble fireplace. Our stone artisans have the trained eye necessary to determine exactly how to repair the marble, including matching the colour of the repair if necessary.
Is marble good for a fireplace?
Marble fireplaces are a good idea for many reasons. Marble is a hardy and highly durable natural stone with a high level of heat tolerance, making it ideal for use in fireplaces. With the right maintenance and simple care, marble fireplaces can last for many years and be highly resistant to stains, breakages, cracks and chips. Additionally, marble comes in a wide range of colours, shades, veining patterns and styles so even if the iconic snowy white with grey vein aesthetic isn’t what you’re looking for, there’s still plenty of alternative options to choose from.
How much does a marble fireplace cost?
There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of a marble fireplace. For one thing, the design of the marble fireplace and surrounds (such as the mantle) will determine how much stone is required and how much labour needs to go into the creation of the fireplace and installation. The more grand and ornate the fireplace, the higher the cost is likely to be. If your fireplace needs additional edging or structural reinforcement, this can also increase your material and/or labour cost. Plus, there are different types of marble with the rarer materials costing more to have quarried and shipped. Having said all that, marble generally ranges anywhere from $800 to $2,200 per square metre including installation
What can you do with a marble fireplace?
When you’re considering what to do with marble fireplaces, the sky is often the limit. There’s a wide range of colours, shades and patterns of marble stone so there’s plenty of opportunity to find the right exact look for your home. Even older marble fireplaces facing being outdated and unstylish can be spruced up and given a new lease on life. Whether it’s as simple as adding or redesigning a fireplace mantle, choosing a new type or shade of marble to replace the underlying structure, or the addition of new tiles to give the fireplace a new look, the choice is yours. There are even different types of paint that can be used on marble with remarkable and permanent effect.
How do I keep my marble fireplace clean?
The best way to keep your marble fireplace and surrounds clean is to ensure you regularly conduct simple and easy maintenance. Wiping down your fireplace with a clean and soft cloth using just warm water and (if necessary) mild soap only needs to be done 3 to 4 times a year. In between, a simple clean, damp cloth can be used to give it a regular wipe. Marble, while hardy, is more porous than other stones. For that reason do not scrub your marble surfaces too hard or use rough sponges and cloths. Avoid any cleaning solutions with chemicals or high levels of acidity. If something does spill, blot the liquid up before wiping up the spill as soon as possible. Lastly, to keep marble fireplaces looking and functioning as beautifully as possible, regular professional resealing every few years is a must.
