Care & Maintenance of Goodall Stoneworks Countertops

Maintaining your stone countertops from Goodall Stoneworks is easier than you might think. With a few simple practices, you can keep your countertops looking beautiful and ensure their longevity. Here’s a guide to help you understand the easy maintenance routine for your stone countertops:

Daily Cleaning:
For day-to-day cleaning, all you need is warm water and a mild, pH-neutral cleanser. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the surface of the stone. Simply wipe down your countertops with a soft cloth or sponge and the gentle cleanser to remove any spills, food residue, or stains. Dry the surface thoroughly to prevent water spots.

Immediate Spill Cleanup:
Promptly clean up any spills to prevent staining. Blot the spilled substance with a soft cloth or paper towel rather than wiping it, as wiping may spread the spill and cause it to penetrate the stone. If needed, use the warm water and mild cleanser mentioned earlier for thorough cleaning.

Depending on the type of stone used for your countertops, they may require periodic sealing. Goodall Stoneworks provides high-quality stone that is pre-sealed or treated with a protective sealant. However, it’s recommended to follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding resealing intervals, which can typically range from 1 to 5 years. Sealing helps prevent stains and enhances the durability of the stone.

Avoiding Harsh Substances:
To maintain the beauty of your stone countertops, avoid using abrasive cleaners, acidic substances (like vinegar or lemon juice), and harsh chemicals. These can etch or damage the surface of the stone. Also, avoid placing hot pans or pots directly on the stone surface to prevent heat damage. Always use trivets or hot pads to protect the stone from extreme heat.

Preventing Scratches:
While stone is generally highly durable, it’s best to take precautions to prevent scratches. Avoid using sharp knives directly on the countertop surface and use cutting boards instead. Also, consider using coasters or mats under heavy or sharp objects to prevent scratches or impact damage.

Regular Inspections:
Periodically inspect your countertops for any signs of damage or wear. Check for cracks, chips, or any areas where the sealant may have worn off. If you notice any issues, contact Goodall Stoneworks for guidance and assistance in resolving the problem.

By following these easy maintenance practices, you can keep your Goodall Stoneworks stone countertops in excellent condition for years to come.
