Granite Countertops

Granite Countertop Maintenance and Care


Natural stone countertops are so popular in residential installations because they are so durable and easy to maintain.  Your stone will stay beautiful and functional for generations with very little maintenance.


DO:  seal your countertops annually, clean your countertops with ammonia-free Windex and dry them with a Terrycloth towel, buff them with “000” steel wool to remove difficult grime, and do only light cutting on the granite surface.


DO NOT:  use harsh or abrasive detergents, leave acidic liquids on the surface for extended periods of time, or leave wet rags or sponges laying directly on the surface for extended periods of time.
