Caring for your new Granite Countertops

October 2nd, 2014      Leave a comment

Granite is a very popular choice for new countertops in kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling. However, not everyone knows how to properly care for Granite. So, we at embee & son thought a blog to address this would be appropriate.

Granite countertops really don’t take much care. Really.

All of the Granite installed in our jobs is treated with a product called “Drytreat”. This production is an impregnating sealer that is technologically different from other sealers such as silicone, Teflon, and siloxane. It penetrates deeper into the porous surface of Granite and bonds permanently inside the pores. It protects against staining, cleaning chemicals, traffic, sunlight, and creates a deep barrier. Drytreat carries a warranty of up to 25 years when the sealer is applied by a Drytreat Accredited Applicator.

Performing daily maintenance is the best care for the countertop.

Simply clean the countertop with warm water and a few drops of dishwashing detergent and a soft cloth. Use clean water and a dry, soft cloth to rinse. Keeping the stone surface clean ensures it’s always easier to clean when there are spills.

Granite Countertops can stain if not sealed.

Red wine and acidic foods are the top offenders to the life of Granite. Wipe up any spills immediately with a sponge and water.

It’s best to prevent long term exposure to extremes in temperature.

While hot cooking pans and pots will not do any surface damage, it’s not advisable to have extreme or constant temperature changes. Leaving a hot pan on the Granite for long periods during colder winter months is an example.

Granite Countertops should not be cleaned with any acidic cleaning products.

This includes vinegar-based cleaners, ammonia, lemon or orange cleaners, bleach and any abrasive cleansing powders or pads.

While Granite is very resistant to scratching, cutting directly on Granite will damage your knives.

You should always use a cutting board regardless of countertop material. Also use mats or trivets under any objects that could potentially scratch, such as ceramic objects, flower pots, and containers.

If you have a Granite countertop you feel has a surface that has been compromised, contact a professional to evaluate the surface.

Repairs may include deep cleaning, buffing or reapplying a sealer.

It is essential to follow all of the tips above to ensure your Granite countertop lasts a lifetime.
