How to Care for Granite and Quartz Countertops

As a leading fabrication company in the Saint Louis area, Rock Creek Granite specializes in the installation and care of granite and quartz countertops. These durable and beautiful materials are a popular choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops, but they do require some special care to keep them looking their best.

Caring for Granite or Quartz

When it comes to caring for granite and quartz countertops, the most important thing to remember is to avoid using acidic or abrasive cleaning products. These can damage the surface of the stone and may cause discoloration or etching. Instead, use a pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for use on stone surfaces.

To prevent scratches and chips, it is important to use cutting boards and trivets when preparing food or placing hot pots and pans on the countertops. It is also a good idea to wipe up any spills or stains as soon as they occur to prevent them from setting in.

If your granite or quartz countertop does become scratched or chipped, it is important to have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Rock Creek Granite offers professional repair services to restore the beauty of your countertops.

One more thing, to prevent discoloration, it is important to use coasters under glasses and to avoid placing certain items on the countertops, such as hair dye or nail polish remover, as these can cause discoloration.
