Finally... A better way to protect your stone from etching.
Acid-sensitive stones like marble, limestone, travertine, and onyx are prone to etching? When acidic substances come in contact with these stone types, the acid actually begins to eat away at the surface, which creates dull spots known as etching. An etch is not a stain and cannot be prevented by using even the best penetrating stone sealer.
Everyday items that you use in your kitchen such as lemons, vinegar, coffee, wine, and soda or in your bathroom, like toothpaste, certain cleaners, and lotions can quickly cause an etch mark. While it's certainly possible to repair etches, the process can be labor intensive and expensive. Most importantly, the repair does not protect against future etching.
Etching is one of the most common forms of damage to marble products. Etching is where acidic or corrosive compounds eat away at the surface of the marble which results in dull spots and discoloration/staining. This cannot be restored without damaging the surface as stone restoration contractors will have to remove the top layer by sanding it down and re-polishing the surface. However deeper damage will not be removed by this and can ruin the character of the marble.
Most of this damage is caused by accidental spills, but a lot of damage is also caused by the use of improper cleaning products. Some examples of products and materials that can cause etching:
There are varying levels of etching that can occur:
Etching is different from staining and cannot be prevented by even the best stone sealer.
