Simple, minor kitchen renovations are increasing in popularity. Replacing/upgrading countertops and refinishing cabinets are ways to add value to your kitchen at a fraction of the cost.
1. Use a sponge or microfiber cloth to dust off and clean granite counters
3. Blot up spills immediately
-Acidic liquids will not etch granite, but could potentially stain the surface.
4. Clean about once a week with a damp cloth and stone cleaner that is formulated with a neutral pH
5. Reseal your countertops about once a year with a stone sealer
-A good way to check if you need to reseal your counters is to splash water on the surface and if the water doesn’t bead up then you should reseal your granite. Stone sealer can be purchased at any local home improvement store.
6. If stains or damage occurs contact a stone-care professional for repair
1. Don’t use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners -These can scratch, pit and etch the surface of the stone
2. Don’t use soap repeatedly to clean your granite-This can cause a build-up and dull your countertops shine
