Just like taking care of your other investments, the better care your provded to your new stone, the better it will it will look over time. Simple care and maintenance will help preserve your stone’s beauty for generations to come.
Natural granite and Quartz tops can be cleaned regularly with a mild dishwashing detergent and rinse with warm water. Use micro fiber cloth when dry as it does not leave any water mark.
Do not use cleaning products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids as the acid content may etch the granite/marble surface.
Do not use ammonia-based cleaners as they will rub away your sealant.
Do not use scouring powders or scouring creams; these products contain abrasives that may dull or scratch the granite surface
Special care must be taken in areas like Calgary that have hard water. Spilled water often leaves surface water stains. To remove, use a micro fiber cloth. Micro fiber cloth is available in leading grocery or home supply stores.
Calgary Granite carries the DuPont™ Stonetech® Professional BulletProof® Sealer designed for all stone surfaces.
If you must wax, use ONLY a stone wax. Granite can be sealed even when the wax is on.
