Care of Natural Stone Products

There is nothing quite as elegant as marble and granite flooring and/or countertops. However, because both stone products are absorbent, they need special care. Marble and Granite can stain when liquids or oils are spilled on the surfaces and both stone products are extremely sensitive to acids like vinegar, orange juice or other household cleaning chemicals which can seriously damage your finishes.

 

To help you look after your marble or granite flooring and countertop:

  • Wipe up any spillages immediately
  • Use coasters under glasses or bottles
  • Use mats or trivets to place hot items on countertops
  • Use clean mops or towels
  • Always rinse using clean, warm water
  • Avoid abrasive cleaning products
  • Avoid bleaches in your cleaning products
  • Avoid acid based household cleaners
  • Use only mild phosphate-free, eco-friendly dishwashing liquids or powders, suitable detergents (pH 7) or vegetable oil based soaps and rinse all soap completely off surface

 

For Daily Care:

  • Sweep floors using soft brooms or brushes
  • Vacuuming floors is only recommended if your vacuum cleaner is in great condition
  • Dry mop every day with a non-treated cloth
  • Wipe countertops using warm water and dry afterwards with a soft cloth
