What is the right countertop stone?

Granite is one of the most popular choices for kitchen countertops.

This stone is very hard and resistant and resistant to heat, scratches and stains. Also, it is available in a wide range of colors and patterns.

To protect the surface of the stone countertop and maintain its beauty and efficiency, you can take the following actions:

  • 1. Regular cleaning: Always keep the stone surface clean. For daily cleaning, use warm water and mild soap and then dry it with a soft, non-abrasive cloth. Do not use strong, abrasive detergents such as liquid paste, toothpaste, or strong cleaners, as they may scratch or darken the surface of the stone.
  • 2. Prevent stains: To prevent permanent stains on the surface of the stone, quickly remove liquid stains such as oil, sauce, coffee and syrup. Use containers and bowls with a soft base to prevent scratching the surface of the stone.
  • 3. Using a non-cutting board: When placing hard and sharp tools on the surface of the stone, use a non-cutting board or cutting board to avoid scratching the surface.
  • 4. Using a board or thermal towel: If using hot dishes on the surface of the stone, use a board or thermal towel to prevent thermal damage.
  • 5. Avoid impact: Try to avoid impact on the stone surface. Place soft protectors such as foam or protective corners on walls and edges to prevent impact on the stone surface.
  • 6. Regular maintenance: cover the surface of the stone with special stone countertop preservation and protection products (such as wax). These products can help the stone resist stains, lines, and minor scratches.
  • 7. Protection against chemicals: Avoid using strong and acidic chemicals on the surface of the stone, as it may cause damage and discolouration. If using acidic materials is necessary, it is better to use special chemical products for cleaning stone countertops and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
