Maintaining your Countertop


With so many different materials being used in homes, it’s important to understand the difference in care. Here are some of the most common countertops and some easy ways to clean and maintain them.

Laminate - use a soft cloth with a mild detergent or cleaner, and use a soft toothbrush to clean the seams and edges

Quartz - use a soft sponge or dishcloth and warm water. Avoid abrasive cleaners, scrub sponges, or metallic pads, as these may dull the surface; additionally, some common household cleaners with very high or low pH levels may discolor quartz countertops.

Granite - wash with a pH-neutral cleaner or a cleaner specific for stone to keep your counters clean. Avoid vinegar, lemon juice, harsh cleaner or abrasive materials

Corian - use warm soapy water, ammonia-based cleaner, or dedicated countertop cleaner. Avoid window cleaners as they can leave a waxy build-up

Tile - use a cleaning solution with a cotton mop, cloth, sponge, or a non-metallic brush, then rinse the entire area to remove residue. Grout also needs to be cleaned on a regular basis to help remove surface build up.

Marble - use a mild, non-abrasive, pH neutral (non-acidic) soap mixed with water or specific marble cleaner. Avoid anything containing acid, including lemon juice and water.

Wooden - scrub the surface with a sponge and a mixture of mild dish soap and hot water. To sanitize you can use undiluted vinegar and let the vinegar sit for several minutes before rinsing it off with hot water
