Granite surfaces need
to be resealed on a regular basis (every 4-5 months, after cleaning
thoroughly) to reduce the natural porosity of the granite.
Liquids spilt on your granite worktops should be mopped up immediately. The
most risk is from oil based substances and highly alkaline or acidic
liquids, like lemon juice, vinegar butter, cooking oils, wine, detergents
and alcohol. Wash your worktop with clean warm water and add a non-abrasive light neutral
detergent (PH7) if required. Rinse with clean warm water and dry. Remove any stains using a water-based stain remover
that is formulated for the specific removal of stains of an organic nature,
such as wine, coffee, nicotine, fruit juices etc. Use an alkaline degreaser
for removal of grease. Never use scouring pads/detergents, wire wool or alkaline-based or
chlorine-based cleaners, bleach, or any abrasive materials.
Granite worktops should not be brought into contact with strong acids or
chemicals including paint stripper, brush cleaner, oven cleaner, nail
varnish remover, grease remover or similar products.
Avoid hitting your granite worktop with blunt or heavy objects, or exposing
it to excessive heat.
