Avoid some bad behavior:

Handle your granite kitchen countertop just like other materials. Be sure to wipe out any spills then and there. Make sure to use the supporting tools like coasters, trivets, hot pads, as well as cutting boards whenever necessary. If you can avoid some of the bad habits, we are sure that happen bad will happen to your countertop. Try not to place anything hot on the granite surface directly. In some rare cases, thermal shock may occur.

Cleaning your Granite Kitchen Countertop:

When it comes to cleaning your granite kitchen countertop, we would advise you not to use any harsh chemicals. The ideal thing to use for cleaning is the granite cleaning spray. You are advised to strictly avoid the following cleaning agents:

  • Bleach
  • Ammonia
  • Vinegar
  • Citrus cleaners
  • Powder cleanser
  • Soft creams
  • Bathroom cleansers

I would suggest you not to use even the regular dish soap cleaner as it is more likely that it starts building up over time.

Maintaining your Granite Kitchen Countertop:

It’s recommended that you plan for a regular maintenance session for your granite kitchen countertops. During these sessions, you are recommended to put some water on the most-used parts to check whether it soaks in or getting beaded up. If it’s not beading up, then remember you need to reapply the granite sealer.
