Tips For Maintaining Your Yacht’s Marble & Granite Features To Keep Them Looking Like New

Stone features add elegance aboard luxury vessels. Whether it is marble or granite, in a stateroom or in the kitchen, stone is a timeless material. Properly cleaning and caring for stone features is important in order to retain their beauty for years to come.

Maintaining Marble And Granite Countertops

Some of the most common places to find stone surfaces in a yacht are in the galley and dining areas. Here are some basic tips for keeping those stone surfaces looking great:

  • Use coasters under drinking glasses
  • Use mats or trivets under hot dishes and cookware
  • Utilize placemats under china and dining ware
  • Blot up any spills immediately

These simple tips help to keep marble and granite countertops and surfaces free from scratches, blemishes, and stains.

Maintaining Stone Floors And Other Features

Other places marble and granite are commonly found aboard a yacht are in the flooring and foyers, bars and lounges and in the bathrooms.

Marble and granite flooring and features require a special type of cleaning and polishing in order to remove and prevent staining while keeping the natural luster of the material intact. Routine maintenance should consist of the following:

  • Dust surfaces and features and sweep floors regularly
  • Utilize entryway mats and rugs to keep dirt off of stone floors
  • Use a damp microfiber cloth for light cleaning
  • Clean stone surfaces and features only with approved stone cleaners; never use ammonia bleach, vinegar, or all purpose cleaners

Revitalizing Stone Features Through Polishing

Polishing marble, granite and other natural stone features is the best way to increase the lifespan and visual appeal of the material. If you have the time and skill, you can rent a buffer and do this job yourself. But generally it is recommended to have high-end stone surfaces aboard a yacht professionally maintained. Professional cleaners that specialize in marble cleaning and polishing can do the job quickly and proficiently, and guarantee their work and the safety of your valuables.
