Give your natural stone worktops the care they deserve

Once you have invested in natural stone worktops, you will probably want to do everything possible to keep them in the best possible condition. This means that you need to pay close attention to your common cleaning habits as well as anything that can damage these beautiful surfaces.

Firstly, it’s important to make sure that you always use coasters and never place anything directly on the surface.Anything you place on the worktop can leave its mark. This is especially true when the dish is hot or dirty. Place mats and wooden boards can be used to hold larger dishes and hot pots or pans.

Secondly, natural stone worktops will need to be sealed as soon as they are installed and regular sealing is just as important. Sealing helps prevent substances from penetrating the surface which means that it helps prevent stains. This does not mean that you can leave spills unchecked, however. You still need to wipe them up as soon as they occur. Substances like wine, oil, and tomato are examples of the most destructive and should be wiped up urgently.

Never cut directly on the surface. This should go without saying but many people still believe that stone is tough and will not be harmed. Yes, stone is durable but it is not immune to scratches and chips. Always use a chopping board.

Cleaning your surfaces should only be done with warm water and mild soap or a stone safe cleaner as per the manufacturer. You should never use harsh chemicals or abrasives. This goes for the sponge or cloth too! Use only soft cloths or sponges and never scrub your stone worktops.

If necessary, natural stone worktops can also be professionally cleaned from time to time. If any damage does occur, you can either repair the chip, crack, or scratch yourself or you can call an expert.
