Surface Care for natural stone countertops
courtesy of www.drytreat.com
For premium stain protection, your countertop has been sealed with a dry-treat world leading permanent impregnating sealer.
With correct care, your countertop will look beautiful for many years:
Spills should be wiped up as soon as possible.
Impregnating sealers work by repelling liquids rather than blocking the pores of the stone. The reason is so that air can still move through the pores allowing the material to 'breathe' naturally. It is the best technology available to protect against staining while preserving the look and natural integrity of you surface.
Because the pores of your stone countertop remain open, the surface is not immune from staining, but the sealer will give you plenty of time to clean up liquids before they absorb into the pores and stain. Using coasters for drinks is also recommended.
For daily cleaning, we recommend Hanafinn RejuvenataTM for Countertops
Hanafinn RejuvenataTM is a pH neutral cleaner specially designed for natural stone countertops. RejuvenataTM is food safe, provides a mild, natural citrus scent, and contains a tiny amount of invisible sealer to increase protection. If you do not have a specialist cleaning product, warm water and a small amount of dishwashing detergent can be used.
For more stubborn grime, marks, or 'spring' cleaning, use Hanafinn Oxy-KlenzeTM
Oxy-KlenzaTM is a safe, powerful, oxygen based, odorless, environmentally responsible alkaline cleaner. Acidic cleaners should never be used.
It is important to find out if your countertop is made from an acid sensitive material. If so, it is important to wipe up spills from acidic substances (including citrus juice, vinegar, cola and wine) immediately, before acid etching occurs.
Hanafinn RejuvenataTM and Oxy-KlenzaTM are available for purchase at Roma Tile & Marble.
