CARE & USE

By following the simple steps below, your stone will maintain its original beauty for many years to come.

Clean up spills immediately.
Use an absorbent cloth followed by natural stone cleaner.

Use trivets and cutting boards.
Although natural stones are heat resistant it is ideal to protect your countertops from excessive heat and wear by placing hot pots on a trivet, not directly on the stone. Protect your fine cutlery by using a cutting board, not cutting directly on the stone.

Use coasters and placemats.
Your natural stone countertop is an investment in your home. Like fine furniture, it is to be treated with care. Protecting the stone countertop from food and drink spills will maintain the brand-new appearance indefinitely.
