As experts in kitchen countertops for the area, we’d like to offer up some easy, everyday kitchen countertop care tips to help them look their best. And, if you have any questions about maintaining your new countertops, please feel free to give us a call anytime.
With the right type of care and maintenance, your new kitchen countertops could last you many, many years. Once a day or so, make sure you wipe your kitchen countertops down with some warm water and a soft white cloth. You can use a mild cleaner on it if you want, but make sure it is non-abrasive, bleach-free, ammonia-free and non-acidic. But, for the most part, you will not need any type of cleaning product for your countertops. Water and a soft cloth will do.
When it comes to granite, these are fairly easy to maintain. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Granite is an incredibly strong stone. It is one of the strongest stones by far. But there are still some precautions you should take to ensure your granite kitchen countertops last for as long as possible. For example, when you place any hot objects on your granite kitchen countertops like sauce pans or other items straight out of the oven, use hot pads or trivets underneath. Granite kitchen countertops are heat resistant, but this does not mean they will not burn if hot items are left on them for too long.
The same goes for quartz kitchen countertops. When it comes to quartz, surface stains can be cleaned with simple soap and water. Just make sure you avoid scouring pads which can dull the quartz surface, and don’t use any harsh chemicals.
These are just some of the maintenance tips you should consider for your new kitchen countertops. Are you interested in learning more about maintaining your Maple Grove area home’s kitchen countertops? Call Northstar Granite at 320-963-8677 or you can contact us to get a Free Estimate.
