How should I care for my marble or granite?

Daily and weekly maintenance is the most important factor to keep your natural stone looking its best. A good rule of thumb is never use anything that you wouldn’t use on your hands. Simply follow the instructions below:

  • Blot spills immediately.

  • Clean with a pH-balanced cleaner and clean cloth. The term “pH” refers to the potential of Hydrogen, and is used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. A pH balanced cleaner will be a neutral solution, meaning that it will measure a 7 on the pH scale of 0-14.

  • You may also use a stone cleaner (available at most hardware stores) or a small amount of ordinary dish soap (white or clear) and water to wipe down your surface. Diluted window cleaner (50% water, 50% cleaner) also works well. Do not use old kitchen sponges, they may contain oil from your dishes and leave a film on your surface.

  • The granite surface must be resealed once per year with stone sealer.
