Caring for Granite

Granite can last for years, decades and even centuries. But to keep your granite looking great, you should follow some basic care instructions.


To keep granite countertops clean, use a microfiber cloth to dust off the countertop surface. Wipe down your granite countertops daily and as needed using water.

Once a week, wipe down with a damp cloth and a stone cleaner formulated with a neutral pH. Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. They can scratch, pit or etch the surface of the stone.


In addition to cleaning your granite countertops, you'll want to be sure they are sealed periodically. How do you tell when it's time to reseal your countertop? When water splashed on the surface no longer beads up it's time to reseal. If there are stains or damage, contact a stone-care professional for repair.
