Posted on: March 25, 2021
Granite countertops in your kitchen are one of the easiest ways to add class to your kitchen area’s overall look. But unfortunately, we cannot say the same about the maintenance of that surface. Though often associated with strength and durability, ironically, these surfaces require a significant amount of care and attention.
The rock-like feel undeniably contributes a certain charm to the surface, but it can gain some damage by even a small agent like a tiny droplet of water. Yes, the surface absorbs water which leads to the loss of shine and luster in its appearance. Therefore, it is essential to be aware of how to properly take care of these surfaces to maintain them and make them long-lasting.
Pick cleaning agents wisely
One of the most common queries regarding these surfaces is the cleaning procedure. There are too many products available in the market, and most individuals give different advice as to whether to use them or not use them. This clash of ideas creates confusion, and many of us end up damaging the area only because of a lack of knowledge and wrong cleaning techniques.
After all these cautions, people automatically assume that it is costly to maintain these surfaces and it needs a special cleaner. But the good news is, while cleaners made exclusively for these tops are available, you don’t necessarily need them to keep your surface clean and shining. All you need is to be a little careful while cleaning.
Be gentle to the countertop
While cleaning your countertops, you need to keep in mind that these surfaces do not require vigorous rubbing while cleaning. A clean microfiber cloth or a soft sponge, a mild or gentle soap solution, and a delicate, dry piece of fabric are all you need to make your surface new again.
Pour some soap solution in a small plate with some warm water, than deep into your sponge or microfiber cloth make it wet squeeze your sponge a little to get off the extra water and than gently move through your surface in a small circular motion.
After running the sponge all over the surface, wash off the soap and run the cloth once again only with water. When the surface gets all clean, run a dry piece of fabric to absorb the excess water.
Keep the surface dry
It is essential to let the surface completely dry, so you should leave it for 10-15 minutes after wiping it with a dry cloth. Additionally, spray a few drops of water on the surface, and if it does not form beads and gets absorbed by the surface, it is time to change the seal.
