Care & Maintenance
While not all granites have the same physical characteristics, most granites have naturally low moisture absorption rates. Therefore, staining of your granite top, especially when highly polished, is normally not an issue. With that said, it is a common practice by fabricators to apply a sealant to the countertop for added security and “just-in-case” protection for your investment. Future applications of sealant, given homeowners choose to do so, will take only a cotton cloth and a few minutes worth of time. Scratches: Second only to diamonds, Granite is one of Earth’s hardest stones. With that, a few materials have the ability to scratch your granite. Therefore, one can rest assured that Granite will not scratch under normal conditions. Spills: Blot the spill with a paper towel immediately. Do not wipe the area, as it will only spread the spill. On the rare occasion that a stain is left, flush the area with plain water and mild soap several times. Dry the area thoroughly with a soft cloth. Repeat as necessary. Chips: While being one of the most aesthetically pleasing stones, Granite is also one of the hardest. Unless you are heavily abusing your countertop with a hammer or another excessive force, Granite is unlikely to chip. Yet, in the event that it does, you should save the chips and bring them to your fabricator. They should be able to use the chips to repair your countertop.
Routine Maintenance: Simply clean with soap and water on a regular basis to keep the lustrous gloss and radiant sheen. Use warm water and a damp cloth with a small amount of non-abrasive cleaner that does not contain bleach. Although Quartz is resistant to staining, spills should be cleaned as soon as possible. Liquid spills and soiling left from fruits, vegetables, or other foods should be wiped up and cleaned with soap and water. Heat: Although Quartz withstands heat better than most surfacing materials on the market, all surfacing materials, including stone, can be damaged by extreme temperature changes, whether prolonged or sudden. Trivets and hot pads should always be used. Scratches: While Quartz is resistant to scratches, cuts, and chipping, cutting directly on the Quartz surface should be avoided. Use cutting boards to ensure long-lasting beauty. Recommended cleaners:
- Simple Green
- 10x Stone Polish
- Magic Eraser by Mr. Clean
- Soap and Water
- Denatured Alcohol
**All products must have all excess removed immediately after application with water and cloth. Prolonged exposure may ruin the surface of the slab** Removing Difficult Spills: On stubborn or dried spills where routine cleaning procedures do not work, use a non-abrasive cleaning pad along with the above mentioned recommended cleaners. If gum, nail polish, paint, or other substances are accidentally allowed to adhere to the surface, they can be removed with the use of a plastic scraper or putty knife to gently scrape off the substances and by following routine cleaning procedures.
Most dirt and residue: Use soapy water, rinse, and wipe completely dry. Preventing hard water marks: Rinse and wipe completely dry after cleaning. Clean up spills before they dry. Removing hard water marks: Use a cleaner formulated for removing hard water marks, such as CLR or Lime-A-Way. Difficult residue: Spray residue with Deep Cleaner from Stone Care International. Follow instructions on the bottle. If residue persists, repeat process. Wash area with soapy water, rinse, and wipe completely dry. Disinfecting: Occasionally, wipe surface with a diluted household bleach solution -1:100 (5 Tbsp. of bleach to 1 gallon of water. As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for disinfecting surfaces). *Avoid getting the bleach solution in your eyes or on bare skin. Always follow the bleach manufacturer’s safety instructions when working with bleach. Polish: To enhance the gloss level on semi-gloss and high-gloss finishes, use a countertop polish such as Countertop Magic.
For simple cleaning, use a nylon-bristled hand or vegetable brush, along with a mild liquid detergent-and-water solution or household cleaner. For tough stains, use full-strength Fantastik All Purpose Cleaner, Formula 409, Pine-Sol, or other mild household cleaner. Apply the cleaner and allow it to draw out the stain. Clean the soiled area using a rotating motion. Blot with a clean, damp, non-abrasive cotton cloth. Rinse and dry the surface. *When it comes to cleaning laminate countertops, less is more. Never use abrasive cleaners, powders, scouring pads, steel wool, sandpaper, etc. These can damage the surface finish and make it susceptible to staining.
