The natural stone you have purchased is an investment that will give you many years of enjoyment. Here are a few recommendations for routine care and cleaning:
In the bath or other wet areas, soap scum can be minimized by using a squeegee after each use. To remove soap scum, use a non-acidic soap scum remover.
Vanity tops may need to have a penetrating sealer applied. Check with your installer for recommendation. A good quality marble wax or non-yellowing automobile paste wax can be applied to minimize water spotting.
In food preparation areas, the stone may need to have penetrating sealer applied. Check with your installer for recommendations. If a sealer is applied, be sure that it is non-toxic and safe or use on food preparation surfaces. To clean spills gently dab the spill with a soft cloth. Do not wipe this will only cause the spill/stain to spread. Use granite cleaner or warm water with mild dish soap.
In outdoor pool, patio or hot tub areas flush with clear water and use a mild bleach solution to remove algae or moss.
Frequently, dust mop your floor using a clean non-treated dry mop. Sand, dirt and grit do the most damage to natural stone surfaces due to their abrasiveness. Mats or area rugs inside and outside an entrance will help to minimize this. Be sure that the underside of the mat or rug is a non-slip surface. It takes about eight steps to remove sand or dirt from the bottom of ones shoes. Do not use a worn vacuum cleaner. Metal or plastic attachments or their wheel may scratch the surface.
