Care & Maintenance of your Granite & Quartz worktop

If you utilize the graniteor the quartz counter top care and cleaning procedures that follow for all your countertops . . . no matter what type of stone or surface . . . you'll eliminate most potential problems without ever having to think too hard about it or worry that you may be causing damage.

Do: Blot up spills immediately.

Acidic substances like wine, coffee, fruit juices, tomato sauce and sodas will not etch granite like they do marble, but they could potentially stain the surface. Cooking oils may also leave a stain if not wiped up.

Do: Clean surfaces using a sponge or soft cloth.

Using a specially formulated natural stone cleaner to keep your tops in the best condition and protect the sealer, but hot water will do for quick clean-ups.

Do: Use trivets and hot pads under pots & pans.

Yes, you can take a hot pot off the stove and put it right on granite or quartz countertops without any problems. It is possible for granite (or any stone or quartz) to suffer "thermal shock" and crack, but rare. You don't really want to put hot pans on any other surface save soapstone.
