Good granite care and maintenance is important to keeping your natural stone in great shape for years to come. Even though granite is known for being durable and long lasting, there are still a few ways you can be sure to keep your countertops absolutely stunning.
We specialize in products for optimum granite care:
Even though granite is extremely resistant to scratching and heat from cooking than any other surface, it’s still important to remember that it’s a porous material and sealing the stone minimizes any potential staining. Whenever you purchase granite countertops from Rock Fin, we will seal your countertops with an impregnating sealer during installation.
An annual resealing of your countertop is quick and easy. All you have to do is clean and dry your countertops, wipe the sealer on the surface with a cloth and then let it dry for at least thirty minutes – that’s it! Rock Fin even has Sure Seal Sealer available for purchase so your brand new countertops can stay looking as good as the day we installed them!
We sell products to help you with your granite care and maintenance:
There are a few culprits out there that are abrasive to stone like dust, dirt and sand so it’s important to regularly dust your stone to prevent any unwanted to scratching. Also be sure to clean up spills and use coasters on your granite, because even though granite is minimally absorbent, it can stain if spills are left untouched, especially if they contain citrus juices or alcohol. Cleaning your stone on a regular basis with warm water and a mild cleanser will keep your countertop surfaces stain free. Avoid any abrasive cleaners like ammonia, bleach, acids or all purpose cleaners. There are a number of cleaning products out there specially made for granite like B&R Natural Stone and Grout Cleaner which is also available for purchase at Rock Fin.
