How to look after stone kitchen worktops

23-Oct-2014 Stone worktops in your kitchen will totally transform its design by adding a wonderful touch of elegance. Of course, they do carry a higher price tag than many other types of countertops and homeowners will want to do everything they can to prolong the life of their stone worktops.

The first thing you need to do is make sure that your surfaces have been properly sealed. In addition, you will need to reseal them on a regular basis to ensure ongoing protection.

Although stone worktops are usually quite tough, you should avoid cutting directly on them or placing hot pots and pans directly on them (this can cause discolouration).

When it comes to cleaning, you should never use anything abrasive or acidic. Look for special solutions for cleaning the type of stone you have chosen to install. If you are unsure, ask the professionals from which you made your stone purchase. They will be familiar with the best options on the market. After cleaning, always be sure to wipe down thoroughly with plain water to get rid of any residue.

If you notice a spill, make sure that you clean it up immediately. Don't wait for it to settle in or get hard. This will make cleaning up even more difficult and could result in damage. If you do scratch the stone surface, you should get it touched up as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
