GRANITE CARE GUIDE
Natural stone is porous, and needs to be sealed on an annual basis. The best way to prevent stains, water spots, and things of that nature is to apply a protective sealant. The sealer can be easily applied by the homeowner, and the process does not take long at all. If you purchased your stone at MC Granite Countertops, we will apply the initial coat of sealer for your countertops, but it is still highly recommended that you re-apply the sealer once every year.
Routine cleaning of your stone is extremely simple, as long as you avoid using chemicals that can cause a negative impact on the stone. Ammonia is one of your worst enemies, and you need to avoid using it at all costs. What ammonia does as far as stone is concerned, is it actually eats away at and dissolves the sealer. If the sealer is not present, your stone is at risk of staining. One of the most common household cleaners that contains ammonia is “Windex”, so make sure to avoid using that product for cleaning your countertops. What you DO want to use is a mild detergent and water, which works just fine. There are many different granite cleaners on the market, which are certainly safe to use, but in all honesty, soap and water is all you need.
Natural stone can sustain heat up to different temperatures, which vary depending on the exact material, but we still highly recommend using trivets or some sort of mat under hot dishes or cookware.
MC Granite Countertops also highly recommends using place mats, or something similar underneath fine china, ceramics, silver, or other similar products that can normally scratch other materials just to be safe. More than likely, your countertops would resist scratching from those items listed above, but it is always best to use caution where possible, so you can protect your investment.
MC Granite Countertops has taken the time to provide some common “DO’S DON’TS” for caring for your new countertops:
DON’T wait to clean up spills; take care of cleaning them up as soon as you can.
DON’T use cleaner that contains a grit in it for cleaning (i.e. bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners, bathtub cleans. Soft Scrub, Comet, etc.)
DON’T use vinegar, bleach, ammonia, or anything with high levels of acid in it for cleaning.
DON’T use anything abrasive to clean your countertops (i.e. steel wool, dry cleansers, soft cleansers Scotch Brite, etc.)
DON’T use alkaline cleaners that are not specifically formulated for natural stone.
DO clean surfaces regularly with soap and water, or an approved stone cleaner.
DO make sure to enjoy your countertops, and don’t be afraid to use them normally, just be conscious about items that could potentially harm them.
