We cook, we spill, we get our countertops dirty. Stone countertops require minimal maintenance, but aren’t maintenance free. Keeping them clean the proper way will ensure both you and your stone live a germ-free life!
Here are some stone care best practices:
- Wipe spills immediately – the longer they sit, the tougher the stain will become.
- If a stain appears on your countertops, identify the cause. Not all stains are the same – removing an oil stain is much different than ridding your countertops of a wine stain.
- Once the source of the stain is identified, read our Care and Maintenance page for methods to remove the stain.
- Only use a pH neutral cleanser. Anything too acidic can etch and dull the countertops – especially marble!
- Never use any cleaner that includes ammonia. Ammonia will leave a film on your countertops.
- We recommend cleaning your countertops with a mild soap and water or a stone cleaner that can be found at your local hardware store.
- Ensure any cleaner is fully wiped from the countertops after cleaning.
Because of the current Covid-19 outbreak, we also recommend following the CDC’s guidelines to clean and care of your home.
