There is a general belief that copper sinks are very difficult to maintain. There is some truth to that myth. You cannot expect to keep your copper kitchen sinks looking like a new shiny penny forever. If you allow your copper sink to age naturally to a beautiful variety of darker copper shades, you are going to have a kitchen sink envied by others. Copper sinks are everlasting if you take good care and do proper cleaning regularly to prevent the greening of the copper.
Marble sinks cleaning is little more difficult as it is more porous and absorbency is more .To prevent marble sinks from absorbing fluids sealing is required.

Marble sinks should be rinsed and dried after each use to prevent water spots. If, your marble sink has the problem of etching and water spots it is better to get it re -polished and re-finished by an expert professional.

But, by doing this, the homeowners may require the expert guidance of the sink repairing experts or professionals. They will highlight the homeowner about the sink parts that needs to be really replaced. Also the repairing experts can help the homeowner in locating the best places where the spares or accessories for the kitchen and the bathroom sinks are available at huge discounted prices.
Another way to secure the sink is to use epoxy. A bead of epoxy is placed around the under side of the sink’s lip. You can also place a bead of epoxy around the edge of the sink hole. Drop the sink in the hole and make sure you have a flush seam all the way around. If part of the sink is not flush, use the brackets under the counter to pull it down and secure it. If you do have a flush seam, it means you have a very smooth and level counter surface. If this is the case, you can use just epoxy to mount the sink and may not need any screws and brackets underneath. In either case, be sure to allow the epoxy to dry for the amount of time shown on the packaging. Do not touch the sink at all during this period.
