Care and Maintenance
Each kind of stone requires a different level of care and maintenance. Once you purchase your granite counters, you can enjoy having a long-lasting addition to your property. With the right care, your granite counters can last for decades.
To take care of your granite counters, you should clean up spills as quickly as possible. You can use hot water and a sponge to clean up a spill.
From time to time, you will want to use granite cleaner to protect the counter’s sealant. Because granite is entirely natural, you generally do not need to use a hot pad underneath your pots, pans, and mugs. It is generally a good idea to invest in coasters because glasses can cause water rings to develop.
As you consider different countertops, there are a lot of factors you should think about. Each material carries different advantages and disadvantages. With granite, you get a durable material that lasts for decades. Like quartzite counters, granite counters can resist scratches, heat, and stains. This means granite works well in bathrooms and kitchens.
Granite does contain a few drawbacks. Tile and laminate counters are typically cheaper than granite, but they do not last as long. Because granite is made from natural stone, each slab is unique. If you want two slabs to match perfectly, you may need to use a different kind of stone.
