Custom Countertop Maker Explains the Best Way to Clean Stone, Red Bank, New Jersey

For those who invested in a custom countertop made of granite, quartz, or another natural stone, the question of how to sanitize it is ever present. Is it even a good idea to clean stone? If so, what is the best procedure? Stone World at Red Bank, the countertop installation expert in Monmouth County, NJ, discusses these questions in the following sections. The information below will help you take good care of your natural stone countertop.

Is It Okay to Clean Stone?

Anyone who's ever prepared food knows it's impossible to do so without making at least a minimal mess on the countertop. Spills and splashes are inevitable, and you have to be able to clean them up without damaging the surface, especially if you've invested in something as attractive and long-lasting as natural stone. But while it’s fine to clean granite and other natural stone types, it's important to use the right solutions and clean the right way.

What Is the Best Way to Clean Stone?

Custom countertopsIf you spill coffee, water, or other liquids onto your custom countertop, do not delay. Clean it up as quickly as possible to avoid stains. Wipe the countertop down daily with a warm, damp cloth. Towel off excess moisture when you are done.

For the best results, never use acidic cleaners. These include vinegar and lemon juice, as well as grout cleaner and tub and tile cleaner. Also, never scrub your stone countertop with steel wool or another abrasive material, as these can leave scratch marks. Use only gentle products, and test their use in an inconspicuous spot first. Lastly, it is wise to use trivets to protect the surface from hot dishes and to place drinks on coasters to avoid leaving a ring. Although this isn't technically a cleaning tip, it will help you keep your custom countertop looking good for as long as possible.
