Stone Care Tips
Regularly clean your countertop surfaces with a damp cloth. Dry the countertops to avoid dull patches where hard water and soap residues may have been left behind during use. A light neutral (PHA) detergent (such as Ivory) may be used.
It's always safe to use a commercially approved granite cleaner. Avoid the use of abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, bleach or ammonia products. These precautions are to prevent the break-down of your granite sealant.
Cutting foods on the countertop will not scratch the granite but will blunt your knives quickly. Use of a separate cutting board is recommended.
Hot saucepans up to 350 degrees can be placed on your granite countertop without damaging the surface. Use of a hot pad or trivet is recommended for safe measure.
Granite should be sealed every 6-12 months, depending on usage.
