For quick reference, we suggest the following tips for care & maintenance of your natural stone countertop:
Spray clean or wash areas that have dirt residue with Revitalizer Granite Cleaner and buff dry. Do not use cleaners with ammonia, bleach, vinegar, oils, waxes or any abrasive cleaners (such as Soft-Scrub or Comet)
If your new granite countertops have just been sealed, please do not try to clean the counter for at least 24 hours, to allow the sealer to cure. If a hazing occurs, use Glass Plus and a Scotch Brite pad (green side) to clean off excess sealer haze.
Avoid leaving products such as, decorative oil bottles, pizza boxes, greasy food pans (turkey pan) on the countertop for prolonged periods of time.If you have a spill of a strongly colored food, such as fruit juice, coffee or red wine, wipe up the spill immediately.
Sealing is recommended for areas that are exposed to food, oils, dyes, or high water usage. We recommended that you seal you countertops, depending on the stone every 1-3 years. If you have purchased a lighter colored stone, which is more porous, we would suggest that you re-apply a sealer as needed. Please give us a call if you have any questions!
Sealing is very easy, but we suggest doing it on a day you can open the windows, since it emits some strong fumes the first hour.
Wipe sealer on with a lint-free cloth (an old tee shirt works well). Let the sealer sit for approximately 5 minutes If any excess sealer has dried on the surface you will need to wipe up first with more sealer to break down the excess. Buff dry with a clean lint free cloth. Let sit overnight and your ready to go.
If you have any problems with staining, usually grease (food
stains) or an acidic stain (salsa or red wine), a poultice can be used to draw the stain from the stone. A powdered poultice can be purchased and mixed with a acting agent such as mineral spirits or hydrogen peroxide to treat the stain.
