PRODUCT CARE

 

Care and maintenance are critical to ensuring your granite, marble or quartz surfaces remain beautiful. This guide will provide you with an overview of how to care for your newly installed stone. If you have any questions or for more detailed care instructions please contact us

QUARTZ

In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is all that is required to maintain its shine. To remove stubborn or dried stains, use a damp, soft cloth with warm water and soap. If needed, apply a non-abrasive household cleaner. Thoroughly rinse the surface with clean water to remove residue. Quartz has a non-porous surface, so you will never have to apply sealer to it

GRANITE

Common care for granite involves only periodic washing with clean water and a neutral detergent soap or cleaner. Following the manufacturer’s directions for using a soap or cleaner, wash in small, overlapping sweeps. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove all traces of soap or cleaner solution. Dry with a soft cloth and allow to thoroughly air dry. After drying, a sealer may be applied. To increase stain resistance, use a sealer designed specifically for granite

MARBLE

Normal maintenance for marble surfaces involves only periodic washing with clean, water and mildly alkaline cleaners. “Soapless” cleaners are better to use because they minimize streaking and filming.

Begin by applying clean, hot water (not boiling) to the surface. Next, using the cleaning solution (following the manufacturer’s directions) and wash in small, overlapping sweeps. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove all traces of soap or cleaner solution. Dry with a soft cloth or cotton-flannel and allow to thoroughly air dry
