Granite will last for years with proper cleaning and maintenance. Make sure to blot spills right away to ensure acidic substances, like wine or coffee, don’t stain the surface. Use a sponge or soft cloth and hot water for quick cleanups, and a natural granite cleaner to protect the sealed surface. Use coasters under glasses and cups, and hot pads when placing cooking equipment on the surface of your granite countertops.
When choosing countertop materials, it’s helpful to compare the pros and cons of each. Granite countertops are similar to quartz in that they are very durable and long-lasting with proper cleaning and maintenance. Both materials are resistant to heat, scratches and stains, so they’re ideal in kitchens and bathrooms. While granite countertops may be costly, especially compared to laminates or some types of tile. However, they will give you the longevity and durability associated with their price.
Marble is not quite as tough as granite, but it shares a key quality: Both are made of genuine, natural stone. Each slab will, therefore, be unique and act as a focal point in any room. Marble is more porous than granite and requires sealing on a regular basis, making granite the lower maintenance option.
