Granite Countertop Care Tips

Granite, a magmatic stone formed by volcanic activity, is both durable and resilient. That is why it is a popular natural stone selected for bathroom and kitchen countertops. Granite countertops can last a lifetime if properly maintained.

Avoid Possible Scratches With a Cutting Board

While granite is durable, it is not immune to knicks and scratches. Avoid the possibility of scratching your granite countertop surface by using cutting boards. Not only will this protect your kitchen countertop, but your knives, too.

Do Not Sit, Stand, or Place Heavy Objects on Your Granite Countertop

While granite countertops are durable, they are not the most flexible. Too much weight in one spot can possibly cause cracks. Avoid sitting, standing, or placing heavy objects on your granite bathroom or kitchen countertops.

Purchase Granite Cleaners Rather Than Generic Cleaning Products

Acidic substances such as coffee, fruit juice, sodas, and wine can stain granite countertops if it is not cleaned with proper granite cleaners. While you can clean spills with dish soap, after time, it will cause buildup. Cleaners that contain ammonia, lemon, orange, or vinegar can cause further stains or damage. Purchasing granite cleaners is the best way to clean granite countertops.
