How to take care granite countertops?

To properly take care of granite countertops and keep them looking beautiful, follow these simple steps:

  1. Daily Cleaning: Wipe the countertops regularly with a soft cloth or sponge and mild dish soap. Avoid abrasive cleaners or scrubbing pads, as they can damage the surface.

  2. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Avoid using harsh chemicals or acidic cleaners, such as vinegar or lemon-based products, as they can dull the granite's finish over time.

  3. Use Cutting Boards: Always use cutting boards when chopping or slicing to prevent scratches on the granite surface.

  4. Clean Spills Immediately: Clean up spills promptly to prevent stains. Blot the spill with a paper towel or cloth instead of wiping it to avoid spreading the liquid.

  5. Hot Pads or Trivets: Use hot pads or trivets under hot pots and pans to protect the granite from heat damage.

  6. Seal Regularly: Depending on the type of granite and usage, it's essential to reseal the countertops every 1 to 3 years to maintain their resistance to stains and moisture.

  7. Avoid Excessive Weight: Avoid placing heavy objects on unsupported overhangs of the countertop, as this can lead to cracks or damage.

  8. Avoid Sitting or Standing: Granite countertops are strong but not flexible. Avoid sitting or standing on them to prevent potential cracks.

By following these care tips, your granite countertops will stay in excellent condition and maintain their luster for years to come, adding beauty and value to your home.
