Granite countertops offer a beautiful upgrade to your kitchen and come in a huge variety of eye-catching patterns and colors. But that’s not the only reason to make the switch.
Unlike other countertops, granite doesn’t absorb odors or constantly remind you of your pre-bamboo cutting board period and your serious underestimation of what an 8-inch chef’s knife can do.
With a solid and grout-free surface, granite countertops offer peace of mind during all of your kitchen adventures. Experiment away without the stress of a lengthy cleanup afterward.
The gist: Granite and TREND Transformations countertops are an affordable update; moreover, they’re extremely easy to clean and to keep looking clean. Sound good?
The secret is in the…diamonds.
To quote our FAQ Page:
“The diamond polished surface makes cleaning easy and you can cut your vegetables right on the countertop without fear of leaving cut marks. You can even place a hot skillet right on the countertop. Because there are no grout lines, you have no fear of bacterial build up or dirty grout lines.”
No need to use a Brillo pad to scrub off grease. No worries about wine seeping into small cracks. All you need is a rag to wipe off the surface and it will look as good as new. When you buy your countertops from Granite and TREND Transformations, you can leave your worries behind.
Whether you enjoy putting your counters to the test with your cooking adventures or you have kids who love hanging out in the kitchen, a few quick cleaning steps is all you need to know. Here are a few tips and tricks to keep your granite countertops looking new for years to come!
- Use a dry cloth to wipe up any crumbs, dust, or debris. Depending on the color of your granite countertops, crumbs may or may not be visible. A quick wipe over the entire counter will ensure you pick up any of those loose pieces.
- Wipe spills up quickly. Even though they have a tough diamond-polished surface, our granite countertops still deserve some TLC. Addressing spills when they occur will help avoid any stains from developing.
- Avoid abrasive cleaners or sponges. Basic soap and water applied with a gentle sponge are enough to take care of most spills. As long as you are using a gentle sponge, you can scrub at stubborn spots when needed.
- Take the extra time to dry your countertop after cleaning. This will help you prevent any water spots from developing, keeping your countertops looking gorgeous.
- What happens if you find a stain? Baking soda is a great solution! Make a thick baking soda paste and apply it generously to the stain. Use a soft cloth to clean the area, and make sure to rinse the area well after the stain is gone. If you are faced with a stubborn stain, simply tape plastic wrap down over the paste and leave overnight.
