Caring for and maintaining stone surfaces
Marble & Limestone

Marble and limestone are a calcium carbonate base and therefore require strict cleaning regime:

 

  • Clean up spills immediately

  • Only clean with soapy water or neutral pH cleaner, and dry after cleaning

  • Do not allow acids to in contact with surface

  • Re-seal regularly with a good quality natural stone sealer

Granite

Granite is predominantly composed of silica and therefore less permeable than marble or limestone. It is also less susceptible to chemical attack:

 

  • Clean with soapy water or neutral pH cleaner, and dry after cleaning

  • Re-seal light colours regularly with a good quality natural stone sealer

  • Limescale deposits maybe removed with '00' wire wool

Engineered / Quartz Stone

Quartz surfaces are man made and are comprise of silica and resing binder:

 

  • Clean with soapy water or neutral pH cleaner, and dry after cleaning

  • Stubborn stains can be removed with abrasive cleaner like astonish

  • Do not place hot pans in direct contact with the surface always use pan stands or trivets
