Marble is a relatively soft material and is porous. This means that it will stain and mark unless cared for properly. Although very beautiful, it is essential to seal marble regularly to avoid damaging the stone. Marble is sensitive to acidic foods such as vinegar, lemon, tomatoes, wine, as well as some tile cleaners, mildew removers and other harsh cleansers.
As well as stains within the stone, marble can be affected by extreme temperatures. A marble counter-top, for example, could be easily damaged by hot pots resting on the surface.
