Granite worksurface care & maintenance  guide
  • All our  stone surfaces are sealed to provide a protective coating, which reduces the  porosity of the natural surface.
  • Granite is not difficult to clean - mild soap and water is   all  that is generally required. Work  surfaces should be cleaned using a   neutral detergent, rinsed with clean water  and buffed dry using a soft   clean cloth.
  • For a long lasting finish granite should be treated at   regular intervals.
                
  • Never use abrasive cleaning  products such as metal pads   and scouring detergents on granite as these can  affect the finish over   time. Also avoid alkaline and chlorine based cleaners  and do not use   bleach. Granite is easily maintained without the need for such  abrasive   cleaners.


Drainage flutes can be cleaned using wire wool and wax.
Please be  aware that any acidic products i.e. citrus   liquids, fizzy drinks, wine,  vinegars etc will leave marks on the   surfaces so must be wiped immediately.  Strongly coloured foods, i.e.   curry, saffron, beetroot, red wine, blackcurrant etc can  cause staining   so should be cleaned up immediately.
Please do  not leave Robinson's branded peach squash on the   work surface. We have had one  case of a chemical that only seems to be   present in this squash (no other  squashes have caused any staining to   date) staining some granites.
Do not expose granite to  excessive heat, it is best to   have a trivet or similar to place your pans on  when taken directly from   the hob.
As  with any high quality worktops, care should be taken   against possible scoring  with knives or other cutting tools and   chopping-boards should always be used.
