Guarding Marble Tiles from Stains and Discoloration
When it comes to making your home appear extravagant and sophisticated, marble is one of the greatest materials to use. Before marble is employed for construction, it is first harvested and sliced from pieces of stones that originate from mountains. As a tile, it can be utilized virtually everywhere in your house, especially your walls, your kitchen area, or even your shower area.
In the course of history, marble floors and walls have been considered indications of high-class and affluence. Monarchs have ordered workers and architects to adorn their palaces with marble, a couple of whom have produced some of the world’s most unique art pieces. A renowned example is the Taj Mahal located in Agra, India. The Taj Mahal was developed by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a manifestation of honor and love for his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Until now, it stands and is regarded as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
