You want to keep the granite countertops looking great so it is not damaged. Here are some of the things that you should do to make sure you eliminate the potential problems and keep your granite countertops from becoming a concern.

  • Immediately blot any spills: When you spill liquids, especially acidic drinks, they could stain the surface of the granite countertop. Don’t wipe away and spread it to other areas of the countertop. Instead, blot it up with a towel.
  • Use coasters for your drinks: Most people take a drink from their can, bottle, or class, and put their drink back down. This can damage the countertop. Be sure to use coasters to help protect the surface as much as possible.
  • Clean the countertops using a soft cloth or sponge: You don’t want to use rough cleaning materials to clean the countertop. Also, don’t use dish soap repeatedly. It can dull the shine of the granite countertop.
  • Use hot pads under pots or pans: While rare, putting a hot pot or pan on the granite countertop can cause thermal shock and result in a crack in the countertop. Use a hot pad or trivet to help protect the countertop.
