How to take care of your countertop
Today, quartz, granite, porcelain and Dekton countertops reign superior. These countertops are in most homes in the world and make up for the majority of countertop sales. With so many people having these countertops in their home, it’s important to know how to take care of them. Here are a few tips for each countertop:
Granite – Granite is a touchy stone when it comes to countertop care. Do not use any normal household cleaners to clean a granite countertop, make sure to use cleaners specifically for granite. Normal cleaners can be acidic and wear away the seal on your granite countertop. Use a sponge or a cloth to clean it and remove stains as soon as possible! Granite is highly resistant to scratching and stains, but it is best to be cautious, especially with high stain liquids like wine or sauces.
Quartz – Quartz is less picky than a granite countertop. These can be cleaned with dish soap and a rag or glass cleaner. Do not use abrasive products or acid/alkaline cleaners, but everything else should work fine with your quartz countertop. As with Granite, for best results clean up spills immediately!
Porcelain/Dekton – Porcelain and Dekton are the easiest of the countertops to care for in this list. Most stains can be taken care of with a rag and soap and water. You can use any normal household cleaner, just keep an eye on what stain you are trying to clean up to know the best cleaner for the job!
With this simple list, all your countertop cleaning needs can be fulfilled. Make sure you are doing the proper cleaning techniques for the type of material your countertop is made of.
