Countertop care 101
Keeping your stone countertops looking great is less about a complicated cleaning regimen and more about using commonsense and the right tools.
One important thing to keep in mind is that any and all spills should be cleaned up as quickly as possible.
Drop a container of pasta sauce? House guest spill a glass of water? Wipe up the mess as fast as you can.
Obviously, using a premium-quality impregnating sealer can help your countertop repel liquids that would cause stains. At the same time, impregnating sealers allow your stone to breathe, thereby preserving the look and natural integrity of your stone.
This means that your stone’s pores remain open.
Put simply, even with a sealer, your countertop is not immune to staining. Fortunately, the sealer will give you the time you need to clean up the spill before it has a chance to absorb into your stone and cause a stain.
Clean and increase protection at the same time
