How to protect your natural stone worktops in your bathroom

18-Nov-2016 Stone worktops are popular in kitchens as well as bathrooms. Kitchen use can result in your worktops being exposed to conditions or substances that cause damage. However, many people don't know that the natural stone worktops in your bathroom also face certain risks of damage. Understanding the potential for damage is the first step in prevention.

Natural stone worktops are durable. They are not, however, completely immune to damage. The first rule is to keep any bathroom cleaning supplies away from your worktops. They should be stored in your detergent cupboard or beneath the sink in your bathroom if you prefer. These chemicals can have a devastating effect on any natural stone.

Another rule is to avoid displaying items on the stone surface. Keep your toiletries tucked away in the medicine cabinet and other bathroom storage areas instead. Use a cup holder to safely store your mouth rinsing glass. Install a soap dispenser to avoid direct contact with the worktop. Remember, small things like metal hairpins, clips, tweezers, and so on can rust when exposed to water. If rust comes into contact with your worktops, you'll need to buff, polish, and reseal the area!

As for resealing, this will need to be done on a regular basis in order to prevent water from penetrating the surface of your worktops. You should also use a heat resistant board (like a wooden board) to hold any hot items like curling irons or hair straighteners. If you don't expose your worktops to excessive heat, harsh substances, and you reseal regularly, you will get many more years of use out of them!
