What Products Should You NOT Clean Marble and Granite Countertops With?

Avoid using acidic or abrasive cleaners on your natural stone countertops. Products containing vinegar, glass cleaners, orange, lemon or other citrus cleaners (Pledge Multi-Surface, Windex Multi-Surface, Clorox, etc.), bath tile cleaners, hydrogen peroxide, tile cleaners, or ammonia can damage the surface. Instead, use a pH-neutral cleaner specifically designed for stone surfaces.

How Often Should You Have Your Natural Stone Countertops Professionally Cleaned?

We recommend having your granite and marble countertops professionally cleaned every 12-36 months depending on their use. If you’re a snowbird and do not rent out your home, once every three years should be fine however if you are a full time resident perhaps once every 12-18 months is sufficient, depending on how diligent you are with wiping down your counters with the appropriate cleaning solution and keeping acidic substances off of them.

What Causes Water Rings on My Granite or Marble Countertops, and Can They Be Removed?

Water rings are typically caused by mineral deposits left behind by evaporating water or other liquids (think wine, juices, etc.). Yes, they can be removed! Our team uses specialized treatments to eliminate water rings without harming the stone.

What Can Make My Countertop “Shiny,” Polishing or Sealer?

Polishing your countertops will restore their shine by smoothing the surface and exposing the stones natural grain, while a sealer protects against stains and etching. Both are essential for maintaining the beauty and longevity of your stone surfaces.

What’s the Best Way to Care for My Natural Stone Countertops Between Professional Cleanings?

Use a soft cloth and a pH-neutral cleaner (we recommend Crystal Clean) to wipe down your countertops daily. Avoid placing hot items directly on the stone, and always use coasters under beverages to prevent water rings and etching.

How Can I Tell If My Granite or Marble Countertops Have Been Professionally Sealed?

A simple water test can help determine if your countertops have been sealed. Put a few drops of water on the surface of your stone and let it sit for 15 minutes. If the water beads up after 15 minutes, your countertops are sealed. If it soaks in, it’s time for a professional resealing.
