Here are some frequently asked questions our team of experts often get asked, which may help answer any questions you may have.

  1. What is the best way to care for a granite benchtop?

    Granite Benchtops are durable and resistant to daily life. So long as they’re cleaned daily, cleaning should be relatively easy as all you need is a wash cloth, warm water, a small amount of dishwashing soap and a hand towel for drying. We advise that you use the warm, soapy cloth to wipe up spills or other grime immediately, following up with a quick towel dry to get rid of any excess water and avoid streaks. To remove more stubborn stains, we suggest that you use baking soda to assist with the cleaning, or click here to learn more handy tips on how to clean your granite benchtop.
