General Care Tips for Natural Stone
- Always protect counters from hot pots, pans, and dishes of food. Excessive heat can cause a thermal shock, which may crack stone countertops. Use trivets that allow airflow under the hot item, particularly slow cookers that expose counter surfaces to heat for several hours.
- Never stand or sit on stone countertops. Small fissures in the stone may cause cracks if subjected to excessive weight. Grab a step stool instead.
- Pay attention to spills and wipe them up immediately. Most stone is sensitive to acidic foods like wine, citrus juices, vinegar, and salad dressings. Foods that contain excessive artificial and natural dyes like Kool-Aid and beets should be handled carefully. Even stone counters that are sealed can be etched by strong acids or harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach or ammonia.
- Avoid chopping or slicing directly on the stone counter to prevent scratches. Always use a cutting board.
- If your countertops have been finished with a sealant, it won’t last forever. Normal wear and tear removes the finish. How often you need to reseal depends upon the type and quality of the stone and the color of the stone. Light colored stone usually needs to be resealed every one to three years while darker colors can go three to five years. Always refer to your manufacturer’s instructions.
