We recommend using warm water, a damp microfiber cloth, and, a pH-neutral detergent, a slightly alkaline or a slightly acidic detergent, if necessary, for daily cleaning of the absolute black granite. However, special detergents designed for the purposes of natural stone maintenance are generally preferred. We don’t recommend using abrasive or bleach-containing detergents for cleaning the absolute black granite worktops.
Preventing And Removing Stains
If you wish to protect the absolute black granite worktop against stains, be sure to keep harsh chemicals and corrosives away from the worktop. Also, keep in mind that honed and leather surfaces can very easily be scratched by metal objects, so make sure you avoid using those.
We recommend that you remove stains immediately by using a paper towel, water, and washing liquid to prevent dirt from drying and absorbing into the worktop. With more aggressive stains, we recommend using special natural stone scouring products.
After using the said product, the absolute black granite worktops should be washed again with water and detergent.
Preventing Heat Damage And Scratches
Granite is relatively scratch-proof, but we still advise you to always use cutting boards as knives and other sharp metal objects can leave scratches. Also, Absolute black granite is highly heat resistant, but we still recommend that you use heat shields on this type of kitchen worktop.
All granite worktops have been treated with an impregnating agent that will prevent liquids from absorbing and, therefore, ensure the stone’s longevity. Depending on the intensity of use and the type of granite, we suggest that the granite is re-treated every one or two years with an impregnating agent that’s designed for the purposes of natural stone maintenance.
