How do I care for my granite countertop?
Granite is a very easy surface to care for. When we install your granite countertops, we apply a silicone impregnator to seal your tops.
The impregnator soaks into the stone and will protect it for 10-15 years as long as no harsh chemicals or abrasives are used on it.
All Agranites can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Most can be cleaned with a Windex type product (with vinegar), however this is not recommended for the lighter stones. We also carry a stone cleaner that can be used on granite or marble.
If you find a greasy film on your countertops that cannot be removed with the Windex or stone cleaner, you can use a little bit of denatured alcohol in the area to cut through the film. Just spray some on and wipe with a soft cloth or paper towel. Do not do this more than once every few months.
