Care and Maintenance

Granite is a very tough natural stone, it is a beautiful long lasting, hygenic material - ideally suited to countertops and worktops in the kitchen or bathroom. Granite now provides modern kitchens and bathrooms with surfaces that provide years of durable service and adds elegance and style to any setting.

Granite is waterproof, stain-resistant, heat resistant, scratch resistant - in most cases it will just wipe clean with a damp cloth. All our granite kitchen and bathroom worktops are sealed before they leave the factory. Oil based substances can sink into the granite and take a long time to dry out so we recommend that all spills are mopped up immediately. 

Care for your granite kitchen or bathroom worktop

Granite worktops can stain and are not impervious to damage so keep your granite worktops and surfaces looking their best for many years to come we provide the following care guidelines:

Granite worktops must not be rubbed with abrasive materials (such as metal pads, scouring detergents and wire wool or alkaline and chlorine based cleaners or bleach) instead, wash with clean warm water to which a non-abrasive light neutral detergent (PH7) may be added. Rinse with clean warm water.

Liquids spilt on your granite worktops should be mopped up immediately. The most risk is from highly alkaline or acidic liquids (such as lemon juice or vinegar), oil based substances (such as butter and cooking oils - hot oil splattering from cooking pans around the cooker), wine, detergents and alcohol.

Do not allow any build up of salt or detergent on your granite worktop.

Granite worktops should not be brought into contact with strong acids or chemicals including paint stripper, brush cleaner, or similar products.

Do not hit your granite worktop with something blunt and heavy. It can crack, chip or even break (the edges are most likely to be damaged if physically abused).

We would advise the use of a chopping board as a preparation centre to reduce the risk of damage to your granite worktop.

Do not expose your granite worktop to excessive heat - we advise the use of a tripod or similar to place your pans on when taken directly from the hob.
