The best way to prevent stains is tend to any spills and splatter right away. The sooner you clean a spill up the less likely you are to stain your stone. Blot the spill with a paper towel, do not try to wipe up the spill because you will just be increasing the size of the area that could get stained. Once the spill is cleaned up flush the area with warm water and soap, then rinse several times.
The key to removing a stain is knowing what caused the stain. There are several different types of stains. Some can be removed with common house hold cleaners, and others will require trained professionals like the staff at Top Line Granite Design.
Types of Stains:
- Oil Based ( Grease, cooking oils, cosmetics)
- Organic (Coffee, tea, fruit, tobacco)
- Metal (Rust) * Inks (Paint, permanent markers)
- Water spots and rings (hard water deposits)
