    Care & Maintenance

All our stone surfaces are sealed to provide a protective coating, which reduces the porosity of the natural surface.

Granite is not difficult to clean – mild soap and water is all that is generally required. Work surfaces should be cleaned using a neutral detergent, rinsed with clean water and buffed dry using a soft clean cloth.

Never use abrasive cleaning products such as metal pads and scouring detergents on granite as these can affect the finish over time. Also avoid alkaline and chlorine based cleaners and do not use bleach. Granite is easily maintained without the need for such abrasive cleaners.

Drainage flutes can be cleaned using wire wool and wax.

Please be aware that any acidic products i.e. citrus liquids, fizzy drinks, wine, vinegars etc will leave marks on the surfaces so must be wiped immediately. Strongly coloured foods, i.e. curry, saffron, beetroot, red wine, blackcurrant etc can cause staining so should be cleaned up immediately.

Please do not leave Robinson’s branded peach squash on the work surface. We have had one case of a chemical that only seems to be present in this squash (no other squashes have caused any staining to date) staining some granites.

    Care & Maintenance

Do not expose granite to excessive heat, it is best to have a trivet or similar to place your pans on when taken directly from the hob.

As with any high quality worktops, care should be taken against possible scoring with knives or other cutting tools and chopping-boards should always be used.
