Whether in the kitchen or bath, countertops get constant use, so caring for them properly is the best way to protect your investment and maintain their good looks for as long as possible. Your work surfaces can become damaged if mistreated. General guidelines to follow no matter what type of countertop you have is as follow:
Natural stone Countertops
Natural stone counters, such as Granite, have been sealed to make it highly stain-resistant. To keep the glossy shine, you need to clean granite counters regularly and carefully.
Engineered quartz countertops rival the sophistication, design, and timeless appeal of real stone, minus the high maintenance. The advantage of this over natural stones like granite is that it’s stain resistant and doesn’t need to be sealed.
Solid Wood Countertops
Although, solid wood countertops are beautiful, they require regular care and maintenance.
Laminated (Formica) Countertops
Part of the beauty of laminate for kitchen countertops or bathroom vanity tops is that it’s easy to clean and maintain.
