General Care & Maintenance 

In the end of your counter top installation, our installers seal the tops once for you.  We highly recommend that you re-seal your natural surface every 6-12 months.  If you have marble or any kind of stone that is softer than granite, we advise that you re-seal it every 3-6 months.  If you have an engineered material installed (e.g. quartz or solid surface), this does not need to be sealed.  Re-sealing your counter tops is a service that we can provide to you (fees vary depending on the amount of square footage) or you can easily do it yourself with the following safe products.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • DO NOT use vinegar, bleach, abrasives, ammonia, window cleaners, dishwashing liquid, general use cleaners, alkaline-based cleaners, acidic cleaners, bathroom cleaners, tub and tile cleaners, or any kind of cleaners that claim to be safe for stone but do not have a track record of marketing stone-specific products.

 

  • DO NOT use green or black nylon pads, steel wool, or any type of abrasive rag/pad to clean your counter tops.

 

  • DO use Stone Essentials™ Daily Cleaner with Protector every day to reinforce your stone's stain defense.  Another simple way to clean your counter tops is by using a soft cloth with warm water and mild soap.

 

  • DO blot up all spills immediately to minimize stains or any compromise to your stone.

 

  • DO use coasters under glasses and cups, especially if they contain alcohol or citrus juice.

"...I want to thank you for helping me find the perfect piece of stone to actually now become the focal point of our main bathroom.  Your guidance and knowledge was outstanding.  The gentleman who came to make the template could not have been nicer.  The person who came to install let my husband ask millions of questions and was not rattled at all.”
