Our kitchen store in Nashua, NH, goes above and beyond by offering our customers a complete line of products to ensure your dream kitchen comes to life seamlessly. For example, let’s talk about one of the most highly requested and desirable complement to kitchen cabinets – granite countertops.
Here, our experts have compiled an easy to follow guide to ensure you get the most out of your new granite countertops.
As with any countertop, keeping your granite clean is essential. While mild soap and water are sufficient, over time, residue can accumulate, leaving behind an unsightly film. Instead, take the time to research and invest in a cleaner designed for daily natural stone care.
Although tempting, you always want to avoid easily accessible cleaners that contain harsh chemicals. Cleaners like Windex and Lysol may get the job done, but they will also strip away the protective coating of your granite countertop. When researching products, avoid Vinegar, Ammonia, and Lemon (excluding pure essential lemon oil).
With any natural stone comes a level of maintenance. With granite, you want to consider polishing your stone at least once a month. By doing so, you’ll eliminate the appearance of fingerprints while enhancing the natural shine.
Speaking of maintenance – another highly recommended practice is resealing your granite once per year. However, depending on the use of your countertops, either more or less frequent resealing may be needed.
Another common misconception is that granite is indestructible. It’s not. Even though it is incredibly durable, granite will crack if enough weight is applied to the surface, especially at seams.
Finally, when it concerns the ultimate selection and custom installation of granite countertops, know that only one kitchen store in Nashua, NH delivers a superior experience every time. Visit Cabinet Outlet today at any one of our three locations to experience home design like never before!
