Cleaning Granite Countertops

Cleaning Granite Countertops Cleaning granite countertops is easy and you shouldn't be afraid of them.

To take care of granite countertops properly one thing you need to do is clean up spills in timely manner, which includes cleaning oil and grease.

Daily cleaning can be done with warm water and a little bit of dish soap.

For best results, use a microfiber cloth to buff dry. The microfiber cloth will remove streaks and keep your granite countertops looking great.

Using cleaning chemicals like windex may actually be slowly damaging your granite and deteriorating the polish of the granite.

Try a great granite countertop cleaner that won't deteriorate your sealer and that cleans with out streaking.

For maintaining the high polish and adding an invisible barrier to help protect your granite countertops from finger prints and smudge marks, use a granite countertop polish.

Granite countertop care isn't hard, as long as you know what not to use.

How to Clean Granite Countertops

Cleaning Granite Countertops Cleaning granite countertops can be done daily and there is no need for expensive "granite cleaners".

If you're not sure how to clean your granite countertops, don't worry, clean them as if they were any other countertop, with warm water and soap.

If you're using a cleaning product and your are not sure if it can damage your granite counter, do a test first.

Cleaning Granite Countertops As stated before, after cleaning your granite countertops, dry it with a microfiber cloth to remove any streaks left by the wet sponge or cloth.

Drying it completely helps because any wet area left to dry, may have dirt left in it which doesn't evaporate like the water does.

Also, any water on the granite left to evaportate may have calcium in it and thats how hard water deposits are deposited on the surface.

Really that's all there is to it when it comes to cleaning granite countertops and maintaining your natural stone investment.
