Natural Stone Care Guide

Basic Care Instruction for Natural Materails

Natural Stone is one of the easiest surfaces to maintain. By following these suggestions, your countertops will last a lifetime while maintaining a brand-new appearance.


  • Clean your countertops daily with a soft cloth and a neutral, non-abrasive cleanser for best results. Mild dish soap and water work best.
  • Clean up any spills immediately.
  • Do not use bleach, vinegar, ammonia-based products or other general-purpose cleaners.


            Your countertops were sealed after installation by your Granite Plus Technician. This helps prevent the absorption of any compound that can stain your tops but is not foolproof. Your counters should be resealed anywhere between 6 months to 1 year after the installation. Resealing depends greatly on the type of stone you have and how much use your surface gets.

To test if the sealer is working, place a few drops of water on your counters. If the water soaks in quickly, then it is time to reseal. If it beads up, it is protected. It may not be necessary to reseal your entire countertop. Concentrate only on your trouble areas when needed.

 Sealers can be purchased at home improvement stores or through Granite Plus directly.
