How to keep your stone looking as beautiful as it did on the day it was fitted.
As with anything special your natural stone will need looking after. Treated the right way your granite, marble or quartz worktops will still be looking as beautiful as they did on the day they were installed for decades to come. Stone is naturally porous in structure, left unsealed and unpolished it is very likely to stain, scratch and harbour bacteria.
As you would expect there are a few do’s and don’t with stone worktops follow these simple guidelines for stone worktops that look as good as the day they were fitted.
Mop up any spills immediately, oil, tomato based pastes and curry especially. Your stone has been sealed but is still liable to staining.
Avoid cutting, chopping, slicing or pounding directly onto the surface of your stone. It's not good for your knives and could damage the surface.
Use a soft cloth and avoid scourers. If you wouldn't wash your car with it, don't clean your stone with it.
Avoid storing heavy or breakable items in the storage spaces above your stone. Anything dropped on your surfaces may either shatter and/or damage your stone.
