Caring for Your Ottawa Granite Countertops

Whether you have granite in your bathroom or kitchen, you need to care for and clean your granite regularly.  While granite is a super tough stone for your Ottawa countertops with a variety of styles and colors, it still needs some TLC.

Besides regular cleaning with water and none-abrasive cleansers, you’ll need to make sure the granite is sealed periodically – either by yourself or a TNT professional. Sealing the counterops helps granite resist stains and cracking.

On a regular, day-to-day, basis use a microfiber cloth to dust off the surface. Wipe down the granite countertop using water. Weekly you will want to wipe down with a damp cloth and a stone cleaner formulated with a neutral pH.

How do you know when your Ottawa Granite counterops need re-sealing? You’ll see that water splashed on the surface no longer beads up. Inspect multiple areas as it is likely they will need to be sealed once a year to avoid cracking or shifting at the seams, stains and scratches.

And if you don’t already have granite countertops, TNT has a wide selection of of granite as well as other natural stones for you to select from in our showrooms serving Ottawa, West Ottawa, Carp, Kanata, Stittsville, West Carleton, Dunrobin, and Arnprior.
