The Health Benefits of Cultured Marble


Whether it’s a kitchen, shower or bathroom remodel, cultured marble products from Sand & Swirl are a beautiful option for you and your family. Marble has been considered a symbol of luxury and comfort for centuries, and we can bring this feeling into your home with our exquisite materials.

As it turns out, though, the benefits of marble don’t stop at the visual level. Marble actually comes with a couple notable health benefits as well, but most people aren’t aware of them. Let’s take a look at a few.


Marble is a metamorphic rock that’s naturally resistant to many forms of bacteria, making it the ideal product for places like showers and bathroom remodels where cleanliness and sanitation are top priorities. It naturally resists many of the bacteria that would commonly be found in some of the corners or wetter areas of these rooms, and makes walking barefoot that much less risky – particularly if multiple people use the same bathroom space.

Allergens and Pathogens

Down similar lines, marble is far less likely to harbor the sort of pathogens that can cause viral illness or other complications. More importantly for people who have asthma or serious allergies, this makes it far less likely to contain allergens which can severely activate symptoms. Many people who have these issues, or have children who do, have switched to marble in some of the most well-used areas of the house to help in these areas. This same theme can even be present for pets in some circumstances.

Ease of Cleaning

Marble is far easier to clean than many other home surfaces, typically using just a basic sponge and mild detergent in water. It’s naturally stain-resistant, and only needs infrequent sealing treatments to prevent organic stains. This not only makes cleaning easier, but makes it easier to spot health risks like mold or other growths.


This is only a tangential health benefit, but comfort in the home has directly been linked with lower stress levels in many people – and lower stress levels have been linked directly with better overall health in everything from the heart to the bones. Marble products in the home provide the highest possible comfort and luxury, and can have a real impact on overall mental well-being.
