GRANITE MAINTENANCE

Granite Countertop Cleaning

Granite Countertop Cleaning is easy and not as difficult as some people might actually think that it is. People put off cleaning them but really, the process is simple and easy.

Granite counters adds a lot of value to your home. They are very stylish, heat resistant, scratch resistant and many more things. That’s why it’s important to try and always make sure that you keep the granite countertop clean. You’d be surprised at just how easy it is to clean it.

At first this doesn’t really seem like we need  a “how to” manual, for I think most of us have learned how to wipe off countertops by now, right? Except that granite countertops require a slightly different cleaning approach, but don’t get bend out of shape, it’s not a rigorous 10 step process.

The key to keeping your stone countertops streak free, build-up free, and always looking like new is simple, and can be broken down into three easy rules:


  1. Less is more The shine of granite countertops comes from the polishing process at the factory.  This means that you don’t need a specific product to keep your granite surfaces shiny and looking like new. For everyday cleaning it is best to just use  water and a mild chemical-free all-purpose cleaner
  2. No chemicals, abrasives, or wax based products That means NO WINDEX! Homeowners often ask why their granite is dull looking  and the answer is almost always that they use windex. If your granite doesn’t look shiny or it looks greasy, then I’m guessing you’re use either a  chemical or over using something soapy like dish detergent. The chemicals dry out the sealer from the stone, and too much soap leaves a dull buildup on the granite that just gets thicker every time you use more of it to get that smear off.
  3. Seal at least once a year While sealing is not always essential, it is highly recommended.  Granite is naturally porous and sometimes, liquids can be absorb into the stone. Most liquids will evaporate back out, but depending on which granite the evaporation rate may differ and could leave a mark for a couple hours or even a day while it does so. Sealing is a simple process. Once a year, you pour or spray siliconized sealer onto the countertops, wipe it in with a clean, soft rag, wait 15-20 minutes, and then wipe off any excess. The sealer forms a barrier that prevents unwanted  liquids from absorbing into the granite. This means your granite will be easier to clean, and retain its original luster. This is a great way to maintain your granite since silicone has a very low chemical reactivity.  It’s safe. It’s sanitary.
