Commercial & Retail FAQs
How do I clean a stone worktop?
Stone worktops should be kept clean on a daily basis simply with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. You can also use products that have been specifically formulated for use on granite worktops; PH neutral cleaners are good for granite surfaces as they have a safe level of cleaning power. Avoid abrasive and acidic chemicals that can potentially harm the surface of your granite worktop.
How do you keep granite worktops shiny?
To keep your granite worktops in good condition and maintain that natural shine, you need to carefully and regularly clean them. Make sure to clean up any spillages quickly and thoroughly dry your worktops after cleaning. If your worktops are looking a little dull, buff them after cleaning with a specifically formulated granite cleaner to maintain that polished, shiny appearance.
How do I maintain granite worktops?
To maintain the natural appearance of your granite worktops, you need to clean them regularly and make sure to clean up stains and spillages quickly. Using a soft cloth and mild dish soap or a specially formulated stone cleaner will keep the surface free from dirt and grime, helping to maintain and preserve the granite. You can also apply a sealant to your granite worktops to protect the material from absorbing stains or liquid over time.
What heat can granite worktops withstand?
Granite worktops can endure high heat and resist damage from a hot pan, however, extended periods of extreme heat can cause damage to the surface. While you can place a hot pan onto your granite worktop, we would recommend using a trivet to avoid potential damage or discolouration. Although it is unlikely you will experience thermo-cracks or major discolouration from a pan, it is better to be safe than sorry to avoid replacing the whole slab.
What is the difference between quartz and granite worktops?
Granite and quartz are both extremely resistant materials that are commonly used for kitchen worktops. The main difference is that quartz is manufactured and crushed into fine sand before being mixed with polymer resin and other components. Granite, on the other hand, is simply cut into slabs from its original form and polished, which is why it offers more uneven colour patterns and veining. Quartz is known to be slightly more durable than granite as it is non-porous and more resistant to stains.
Can you remove scratches from granite worktops?
It is rare you will notice scratches on a granite worktop as they are very durable, however, if your worktop is scratched you can remove them. Start by cleaning your worktop with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Some scratches may just need a light scrubbing, but if that doesn’t work, try using steel wool and buff the surface in circular motions. If the scratch still remains, you can use a diamond sanding pad, however, due to the hardness you can risk further scratching. Use light pressure and keep the area wet, or alternatively speak to an expert who can advise you further.
