Care + Maintenance

01 Granite

  • Daily Care: Wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge and a mild pH-balanced detergent to remove spills and crumbs. Avoid abrasive cleaners.
  • Sealing: Granite should be sealed regularly, typically every 1-2 years, to prevent staining. Some darker granite varieties may require less frequent sealing.
  • Stain Prevention: Promptly clean up acidic spills like citrus juices, wine, and vinegar, as they can etch the surface. Avoid using knives directly on the granite.
  • Heat Resistance: Granite is heat-resistant, but it's still wise to use trivets or hot pads to protect the surface from extreme heat.
  • Maintenance: Consider resealing the granite more often if it starts to show signs of water absorption or staining.

02 Marble

  • Daily Care: Clean marble with a damp cloth and a pH-balanced, non-abrasive cleaner. Avoid acidic or abrasive cleaners.
  • Sealing: Marble is porous and should be sealed regularly, typically every 3-6 months, to prevent staining and etching.
  • Stain Prevention: Immediately wipe up spills to prevent staining. Avoid placing hot pots or pans directly on marble surfaces.
  • Etching: Be cautious with acidic substances like citrus, vinegar, or wine, as they can cause etching (dull spots) on the surface.
  • Maintenance: Periodically polish the marble to maintain its shine and luster. Professional refinishing may be needed for deep stains or damage.

03 Quartzite

  • Daily Care: Clean with a mild, pH-balanced detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid abrasive or acidic cleaners.
  • Sealing: Quartzite is less porous than marble but may still require occasional sealing to prevent staining. Frequency varies depending on the specific stone.
  • Stain Prevention: Wipe up spills promptly, especially those containing acids or oils. Use cutting boards to prevent scratching.
  • Heat Resistance: Quartzite is heat-resistant but using trivets or hot pads is advisable for extended periods of high heat.

04 Quartz

  • Daily Care: Wipe with a damp cloth and a mild detergent. Avoid abrasive pads or harsh chemicals.
  • Stain Resistance: Quartz is highly stain-resistant due to its non-porous nature. Spills can be wiped up easily.
  • Heat Resistance: While it can withstand moderate heat, it's best to use trivets or hot pads to prevent thermal shock.
  • Scratching: Quartz is scratch-resistant but not scratch-proof, so avoid cutting directly on the surface.

04 Recycled Glass Composite

  • Daily Care: Clean with a gentle, pH-neutral cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid abrasive scouring pads. Stain Resistance: These countertops are highly resistant to stains, making cleanup easy.
  • Heat Resistance: While they can handle some heat, it's best to use trivets or hot pads to avoid thermal shock.
  • Scratching: Recycled glass composite surfaces are relatively durable but can still be scratched, so use cutting boards.
  • Maintenance: Periodically apply a countertop wax or polish to maintain the surface's luster.
