Granite Kitchen Worktops

Direct from the UK’s leading specialists, Worktops.net

Granite is a hard igneous rock, formed from molten magma. The magma cools and solidifies under extreme pressure deep within the earth. Granite is very popular within the construction industry due to its hardness and durability. Granite’s are also renowned for their depth of colours. They can range from pink to grey and black, or silver or gold sparkles, depending on their chemistry and mineral profile. Available in tiles and slabs, it is perfect for a wide range of uses within the home.

Granite can generally be wiped clean with a clean damp cloth and buffed dry where necessary with a microfiber cloth. If a deeper clean is required to remove grease or oil deposits, a mild, well diluted detergent, or a stone specific cleaner can be used. Under no circumstances should acidic or abrasive products be used to clean a granite worktop as this can damage the surface of the stone. Its advised that any spillages of an acidic nature, e.g. wine, vinegar, fruit juices etc should not be left to lie on your worktop for long periods, they should be neutralised by applying plenty of clean water and wiped up, rinsed and the surface buffed dry.
