Care & Maintenance

GRANITE

Sealing:

Some granites, when not sealed , can change colour when in contact with water, oil and other liquids.

We seal all our granites during manufacturing process. We reccomend to reseal your top every two to three years.  

Cleaning:

For everyday cleaning, we recommend you use "BRIO STONE CLEANER" which is available for purchase is our showroom.

You can also use: Methylated spirits, AJAX Spray n'Wipe Stone Safe or warm soapy water used with a cloth or scotchbrite.

Do not use commercial or abresive cleaners like JIF- which can scratch the surface.

Durability:

Granite is very heat resistent and durable and should not scratch or stain in normal everyday use. However extreme temperature, diamond tools, prolonged exposure to UV light or harsh chemicals can still demage the surface.

Common sense should be applied.

 

MARBLE, LIMESTONE, TRAVETINO

Sealing:

All Marble have to be sealed before installation. We recommend to reseal the surface every year.

Cleaning:

Please see Granite section above.

Please note that Marbles sealed with SV2K sealer must not be cleaned with Methylated Spirit.

Durability:

Marble is a lot more delicate than granite and can easily scratch or stain. Lemon juice, vinegar or wine can demage it if left on the surface for prolonged period. This can not be repaired.

Polished finish Diamondstone tops do not have to be sealed. Only honed or leather finish tops have to be sealed before installation.
