Caring for your granite countertop after fabrication and installation
If your granite countertop needs sealing, we will do it and instruct you on how to seal it in the future. To clean the countertop only use a mild detergent then rinse and dry, all with a soft cotton or microfiber cloth. Never use commercial or homemade cleaning solutions – they can scratch or even etch the glossy finish.
Day to day, follow these cautions for a beautiful countertop year after year:
•Always use a cutting board •Use a trivet for hot pots •Use a coaster •Don’t trust that a hot pot won’t harm the countertop •Frequently use a granite-only cleaner to help keep the surface beautiful
