Care & Maintenance

Granite

Granite countertops are relatively low maintenance, and it is unlikely you will ever need to repair or resurface your granite.

Day-to-day cleaning can be done with a damp microfiber cloth and mild antibacterial soap and water to keep your surfaces spick and span. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, which can damage the protective layer of sealant which is applied to the granite to reduce porosity and prevent staining.

Marble

Marble is composed of calcium carbonate, which is softer and more porous than granite.

Acidic spills like wine, citrus fruit or tomatoes can damage marble, so care should be taken to ensure these are quickly dealt with.

Use a mild, pH-neutral cleanser and damp cloth before drying the surface with a soft towel. While it is tolerant of high temperatures, you should not rest pots or pans directly on your marble countertop.

Quartz

Quartz countertops can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild antibacterial soap.

Although quartz is stain-resistant, any coloured liquids should be cleaned as soon as possible to avoid marking the surface.

Avoid using the countertop to cut food or rest pots and pans on. While quartz is heat-resistant, it can still be damaged by a sudden change in temperature, known as thermal shock.
