The following information should be considered before specifying or working with Stone in the Bathroom.
GRANITE, MARBLE, SLATE, LIMESTONE are all natural materials and are to differing degrees porous and even granite is not impervious to staining or damage ,for long lasting results they need to be cared for on a regular basis.
All natural stone worktops supplied by Bath Granite & Marble are treated with an impregnator which makes the penetration of water,dirt,oil and grease more difficult. It will not stop the ingress but will give you a "time to react" to the spill on the surface.
All surfaces should be CLEANED and RETREATED on a regular basis . Bath Granite & Marble can return to re-seal your surfaces but there would be a charge for this service.
Surface finishes other than polished namely, HONED, ANTIQUED, BLASTED and BUSH HAMMERED are generally less suitable for worktops as the stone no longer has the protection of the polished surface. These surfaces can be more susceptible to marking and the absorbtion of liquids.
