6. After leaving the overlaying cement to sit for 10minutes the Marble Tile Pavers are then cleaned with warm water and left to dry for a further 24 hours.

7. Sealants and glosses can then be applied to keep the Marble Tile Pavers from stains and scratches. Sealants are left to dry for a further 24hours.

Maintenance

Marble is a soft stone which scratches and stains quite easily. Avoid high traffic areas in your home such as main entrances or kitchens as it is highly susceptible to acids, e.g. vinegar and citrus acids. Special Marble Tile Paver sealants can be applied when the installation process has been completed to help prevent further scratches and staining.
