Top 10 tips on caring for your granite kitchen worktop

Granite Workstops

If you’ve invested in a beautiful granite worktop, then you’ll be wanting to preserve its natural beauty for as long as possible.

Granite offers beauty, warmth and a timeless look to any kitchen. It is consistently hard, with a very dense grain, making it difficult to stain and hard to scratch.

Once you have your new granite kitchen worktops fitted how do you look after them?

Read our top ten tips on caring for your granite worktop and you’ll keep your them spic and span.

  1. Regularly clean your granite worktops with a damp cloth, drying off any excess water or soap residue (granite is not difficult to clean – mild soap and water usually does the job).
  2. Never use abrasive cleaning products (metal pads and scouring detergents) like you would on laminate kitchen worktops. Also, avoid alkaline and chlorine based cleaners and DO NOT use bleach.
  3. The secret to cleaning granite is the drying process – it is important you treat your granite worktop with the same care you would a glass surface.
  4. Avoid exposing your new worktops to excessive heat – when taking hot pans of a hob, use a trivet or mat.
  5. Prevent scratching your new kitchen worktops by putting rough or abrasive objects on the granite.
  6. Spilling the following liquids can be harmful to your granite worktops: oven cleaners, juices, wine, oil, acidic liquids (vinegar, lemon juice), paint removers and nail varnish removers.
  7. Wipe your worktops immediately if you spill food and drink that can cause staining e.g. curry, saffron, beetroot, red wine and blackcurrant.
  8. All of our granite worktops are sealed to provide a protective coating, this keeps liquids from penetrating the granite – so there’s no need for you to worry about how to seal your kitchen worktops.
  9. Standing on your worktop or placing undue pressure can cause it to crack – especially in unsupported areas.
  10. Using chopping boards or a butcher’s block is recommended when chopping food. You risk scratching your kitchen work surface and damaging your knives if this advice is ignored.
