Granite Cleaning & Care

Choosing natural stone is an excellent investment. Your new stone will give you years of functionality and beauty. The following will provide very simple and important care recommendations with instructions.

Step Away from Household Cleaners

Once your stone is sealed with our 15-year Stone Sealer, clean-up is a snap. What should you use for everyday cleaning? Clean your countertop with a few drops of mild dish detergent followed by drying with a paper towel or a soft cloth. We also recommend using our supplied can of 3-in-1 Cleaner-Polish-Protect, once a week to revitalize the shine (if used too often, you could end up with slight build-up). Additional cans are available for purchase at our shop. The use of food-safe stone cleaners sold at hardware stores are also recommended. Please avoid using cleaning products that contain lemon, vinegar, bleach or ammonia, which can etch away the polish.

Etch Marks – Those are not Water Stains

Etching is a result of a chemical reaction that occurs when acid comes in contact with a surface. Etch marks on stone surfaces resemble water spots or a worn polish.

We seal our stone which will give you time to wipe up a spill, but it cannot stop a chemical reaction that may leave a dull mark. Following the recommendations and instructions in this document will help preserve the beautiful appearance of your stone and avoid the formation of etch marks.

Clean and Care Do’s and Don’ts

  • Do clean up spills immediately to minimize possible damage to your stone
