At TAM we use natural marble slabs from various countries, which means each slab is different and has it’s own beauty and features. It’s important to know all marble tops are sealed in their origin country; however, the protective coat is no fool proof guarantee against stains. We recommend removing spills immediately with clean water and wipe dry to prevent staining. Always use coasters to prevent hot surfaces from leaving marks on.
The longevity of the marble is based on how it’s treated. Although the veins and cracks are part of the natural look, they are also the weaker points on the slab, & loading the table tops too heavy can potentially cause breakage.
GLASS & MIRROR TOPS
Wipe the surface with glass cleaner and soft cloth.
Dust regularly using a soft dry cloth. For a more thorough cleaning, use clean water and wipe dry. Do NOT use steel wool, sandpaper, mineral acid, bleach, or chlorine cleaners on metal surfaces. Do not drag tables along the floor, as it might damage the protective coating, cause rusting or leave permanent marks on the floor. Always lift the furniture when moving them from place to place
FURNITURE WITH METAL BASE ON A VARNISHED WOODEN FLOOR
Always ensure water and solutions used to clean the floor do not come into contact with the furniture’s metal base, as it might leave permanent marks. We recommend attaching rubber or plastic leg protectors on the metal legs. Protectors made from felt are not recommended.
FURNITURE WITH METAL BASE ON AN UNVARNISHED WOODEN FLOOR
Some wood species, such as oak, contain tannin, which causes the wood to react with metal and leave permanent marks on the floor. We recommend attaching rubber or plastic protectors on the furniture’s metal legs. Protectors made from felt are not recommended.
