Granite Care and Maintenance

Granite is a naturally durable material that will keep its beauty for generations with simple and easy care and cleaning. Your granite will receive one application of sealant prior to installation, and a second application after installation to ensure stain resistance.

Once installed, to protect the beauty and durability of your granite, please:

  • Don’t use abrasive cleaners.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to oils and oil-based products.
  • Avoid exposing your counter to extreme heat (use coasters and trivets).
  • Use a cutting board to avoid scratching the stone.
  • Use a mild soap and cotton cloth to clean your counter.
  • Wipe up spills quickly to prevent staining.
  • Dry dust mop floors frequently to prevent dulling.
  • Reseal counters every 2-5 years depending on need. 

Granite Cleaning

Use a damp cloth to wipe the stone or a liquid dish soap to remove oil or grime from the surface. Rinse with clean water to remove residual soap film. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners. A dry cloth can be used to dry and buff the granite and remove any streaking. Oil spills should be wiped up immediately to avoid staining the granite.
