Ivyland, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2019 -- Granite countertops are a beautiful natural centerpiece in many kitchens and bathrooms. As the most reputable provider of bathroom countertops in Bucks County, and surrounding areas, the Suburban Marble & Granite team has recently advised on the best ways to clean and care for granite countertops. For years, their team has sourced, fabricated, and installed beautiful granite countertops across the Philadelphia region.
To keep a granite countertop clean, it's recommended that a microfiber cloth is used for dusting off the surface area. For basic cleaning, this is all this is needed to keep the stone looking good. When spills occur, the countertop area should be wiped down using only water. Once a week, all surfaces should be wiped down with a damp cloth and a stone cleaner formula with a neutral pH level.
Harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners should never be used to clean granite countertops, even if it looks like the stain or mess requires chemicals to budge. These cleaners can pit, scratch, and etch the stone's surface permanently. For oily stains that may have soaked into the granite, a poultice made with a cup of baking soda and five tablespoons of dish detergent should suffice.
Sealing is a maintenance task for granite that should not be ignored. To determine whether a countertop needs to be sealed, splash water on the surface and observe its behavior. If it beads up, the surface does not require sealing. However, if it flows freely, then the surface requires sealing as soon as possible.
