Is there a product that will remove water rings from a polished marble surface?

Q. Is there a product that will remove water rings from a polished marble surface?

A. What are commonly mistakenly referred to as water rings are generally etch marks. Etching is actually surface damage caused by a chemical reaction from an acidic substance that has been left on the marble. If the etching is not too deep, you can easily rectify it yourself using a high quality marble polishing compound. Ask your professional stone and tile restoration contractor about which product is best for you. If you don't have a PRO yet, contact us

Just FYI, no sealer will prevent etching (aka water rings). Sealers are created to penetrate the surface of the stone to inhibit liquids from being absorbed.

So, what can you do to prevent etching? Use coasters under drinks and clean up spills immediately. Don't leave products directly on marble vanity tops. Instead, use a tray or something similar to display perfumes, etc. For more information of marble surfaces see our marble page
