How to Care for Granite

Countless homeowners choose granite countertops because they offer a stunning and high-end aesthetic and durability. You only need to use a mild dish soap with some water and a cleaning cloth that is damp enough to clean your countertops. You’ll want to stay away from harsh abrasives or acidic cleaners. Remember that granite countertops will need to be resealed annually to protect them against stains.

How to Care for Quartz

Quartz is an engineered stone with a nonporous surface that resists scratching and staining, making it exceptionally low maintenance. As with granite, you’ll want to avoid abrasive or highly acidic cleaners. Also, dish soap with warm water on a microfiber cloth will work well to clean these surfaces. What’s nice about quartz is that it does not require annual resealing like natural stone does.
