How To Clean Countertops

Granite, marble and stone surface countertops are functional, elegant and add a luxurious element to any room. Each piece is one-of-a-kind with unique color, detail and veining. Properly protected stone surfaces will stay beautiful and well-maintained for years to come. Here are a few simple steps to keep your stone surface countertops shiny and clean:

General Tips

  • Blot up spills immediately before they penetrate or dry onto the surface

  • Use Weiman Granite Cleaner Spray for quick cleanups and to regularly clean the surface. Daily maintenance will prolong the life of your countertop

  • Many common foods and drinks contain acids which can etch or dull stone surfaces. Wipe up acidic or alcoholic beverage spills quickly and use coasters under glasses

  • Soils from dirt, dust and smoke may deposit a hazy film onto the surface. Clean and polish regularly with a top-quality granite care product, like Weiman Granite Cleaner & Polish, to keep the surface clear and shiny

  • Do not use ammonia-based cleaners like glass cleaner, high pH solutions, abrasive powders, soapy detergents that may dull and damage the surface

  • Avoid using scouring pads, rough sponges and steel wool

  • Use only neutral pH products, like Weiman, to clean granite. Avoid alkaline or acidic solutions as they can mar and dull the seal

  • While stone surfaces are generally heat-resistant, it is recommended to use trivets or placements under hot items and beneath items that may scratch

  • Always buff and dry granite after cleaning

  • Use a cleaner-and-polish-in-one to brighten the stone's natural color and veining while restoring its glossy finish

  • Sealed granite is not immune to staining. Consult a stone countertop professional to determine how often your countertop should be resealed. You may want to consider resealing when water droplets no longer bead on the surface

  • For cracks, deep stains or signs of erosion, contact a stone care professional
