Granite has recently become the material of choice for homeowners remodeling their kitchens. Granite is both durable and beautiful, but it requires regular maintenance and comes in a limited number of colors. Read here about using granite in kitchens, why so many people are choosing it, and how it might have a place in your new kitchen.
Granite is a super tough stone that is formed from volcanic magma. Granite has earned a reputation as a great building stone. It ranges in color, but is known for how beautiful it is, especially as a countertop.
Granite countertops are beautiful. Each piece is like a unique work of art. Because granite is available in so many colors, homeowners have many options to choose from. Granite is also very durable and resists heat. This makes it great for kneading dough, making roll out cookies, and other tasks that need a cool countertop.
Granite requires regular maintenance. Besides just cleaning your countertops, you'll need to make sure the granite countertops are sealed periodically. Stains on granite can be difficult to remove, but not impossible.
Granite Care and Maintenance
To keep granite countertops clean, use a microfiber cloth to dust off countertop surfaces. Wipe down the granite countertops daily and as needed using water. Once a week wipe down with a damp cloth and a stone cleaner formulated with a neutral pH. Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. They can scratch, pit, and etch the surface of the stone.
Reseal the countertops when water splashed on the surface no longer beads up. If there are stains or damage, contact a stone-care professional for repair.
