How to prevent your worktops from getting damaged


The kitchen can be the busiest room in any home. It's where all meals and beverages are prepared and, in many cases, it's also where many families and friends prefer to gather for a chat and a bite to eat. This means that your worktops need to be prepared for anything and, with the holidays just around the corner, now is the time to prepare!

First things first, inspect your stone worktops thoroughly. Check for chips, scratches, or any other damage. If you notice any problems, make sure that they are fixed sooner rather than later. You can buff scratches and fill chips yourself or hire a professional if you prefer. Once any and all damage has been repaired, it's time to spray some water over your entire work surface. If you notice that the water forms into beads, then the surface is still perfectly sealed. If you don't notice any beading or if the beading is only in patches, it's time to reseal your worktops.

Now that your worktops are in the best possible shape, it's time to remind yourself of a few basic rules:

  • Do not chop directly on the stone worksurface. Use a chopping board or block.

  • Clean up any spills immediately.

  • Use water to clean your worktops and avoid abrasives and harsh chemicals.

  • Do not place items that could leave marks directly on your work surface. Examples include anything metal like tins or anything that contains substances like oil or vinegar.

By being prepared and remembering these basic rules, you will keep your stone worktops in top condition for many years to come!
