We know buying a new home is a huge investment, so it is important to take good care of your home details and features. When buying or building your new home, granite is a great choice for countertops because it is resistant to scratches, water, heat, and bacteria. And although it is very durable, it's a good idea to take the proper steps to maintain it.
Help your granite countertop stay resistant from stains by always using coasters, trivets, and keeping bottles of cooking oils off the counter. Sealing a granite countertop is a good option because it keeps the surface more resistant to stains.
If a spill occurs on the countertop, be sure to blot the stain with a paper towel as opposed to wiping it to avoid spreading the spill. Immediately clean the area with water and mild dishwashing soap. Avoid cleaners that contain acids such as lemon or vinegar, or ammonia or bleach. You can even find cleaners that are made especially for granite countertops.
