What is the best way to clean granite countertops and other stones?

Granite countertops and quartz countertops are supposed to be sealed upon installation. This method will ensure that your countertops will last a long time, and stay looking brand new.

Granite countertops may be cleaned with a mild phosphate-free, biodegradable liquid dishsoap, soap flakes or powder, which contains aromatics.  Granite should always be cleaned and sealed with cleaning products specifically designed for natural stone.

One of the things a lot of people, and even fabricators will tell  you, is that you need some special ‘granite-only’ cleaning products. And that’s not true at all! You absolutely do not need some expensive special ‘granite-only’ cleaning products, there is no such thing! While there are granite only  cleaning products, they are not necessary when there is a cheaper alternative. This usually happens when the granite fabricators are trying to up sell you a product they sell. 

When you first get your granite countertops installed, your fabricator will, or at least should, seal the countertops. Usually that’s good for up to a year, depending on the usage of the countertops. After your one year, we recommend that you reseal your granite countertops.
