Care & Maintenance
Granite countertops will need to be occasionally resealed. How often this needs to be done will depend on the specific countertop, frequency of use, and the sealer used. For daily cleaning use water and a cloth or sponge. Do not use a kitchen or all-purpose cleaner on granite. Clean up all spills as soon as possible to prevent any staining.
