Download Our Granite Maintenance, Quartz Care & Stone Care Guidelines

Are you looking in granite maintenance, quartz care, and stone care guidelines to follow so that your countertops stay in perfect condition over long periods of time? Taking care of solid surface countertops is easy! For granite and quartz, use a gentle household cleaner and paper or cloth towels. There are specialized cleaners for granite, quartz, and stone countertops available at many retailers, but old-fashioned soap and water works just as well. This goes for glass, ceramic, and stone backsplash tiles as well. Be gentle and keep it clean!

Granite maintenance, quartz care, and stone care is a simple process to follow. You should stay away from abrasive cleaners like soft scrub or comet. These types of cleaners can damage the polish on your stone. We don’t recommend the use of bleach or ammonia. The chemicals in these products can degrade the sealants and the polish on your stone, resulting in dull spots.

The difference between granite maintenance, and quartz care is slight stone care differences that you need to follow correctly. Natural granite should be sealed once a year to keep it resistant to staining. Granite sealer is available at most hardware stores. Engineered quartz NEVER needs to be sealed.

Cabinet Care

It’s important to keep  your investment looking it’s best. For wood and laminate cabinets, keep your doors dust and grease free. When needed, use a damp cloth to wipe down the doors. This will keep dust and kitchen grease from building up, leading to dull finish and lingering odors.

Over time, you might notice doors or drawers out of alignment. Simple adjustments can be made to your cabinet doors and drawers with a screwdriver, if needed.
