Maintenance and Care of Stone

Do not be intimidated by your natural stone.  If you do have a stain on your top or the stone has chipped due to a high impact  blow,  just contact Tri State Precision Cut Stone & we can help.

The rule of thumb when it comes to taking care of your stone is to never use anything you would not use on your own hands.

Do not use powdered cleansers or abrasive pads to clean your stone. Even "soft scrub" type cleaners contain pumice & might damage your stone tops.  

 

Tri State Precision Cut Stone seals your countertops before they are installed so the safest way to clean your stone is with just lukewarm water & then dry with a cotton rag.  You can use a common non-abrasive, non-ammonia commercial product, like a glass cleaner as well, to wipe it down & add shine.

 

We do recommend that natural stone tops be sealed once a year for normal use. It is a quick treatment that will help your stone top last for years and years.

 

You should not cut directly on your stone.  Although it will not harm your stone, it will ruin your knives by dulling your blades.  Granite is harder  than your actual blades.   We recommend that you always cut & chop on a cutting board to save your knives.

 

High impact blows can potentially harm granite because of its crystalline structure.  Take extra care with sharp heavy objects so as to not chip your stone.

 

Heat  from pots and pans or  even  burning liquids  will not  affect  granite (the stone can  withstand high temperatures of up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit).
