Granite Countertops – Care and Stain Management

by Randy Gridley

Granite Countertops – Care and Stain Management

Granite countertops can be a beautiful accent to your kitchen. However, with this type of investment comes the worry that if something happens how will you clean it properly and keep the beauty of your granite countertops looking new.

Agents that Stain your Granite Countertops

As a granite countertop owner, or someone that is considering the installation of granite countertops, you will want to make sure that you understand how your countertops need to be treated.  Knowing what can damage your granite is the key to keeping it looking good.

Some of the most common agents that can stain your granite countertops include blood from raw meats, acidic foods like lemons and vinegar, and even wines, especially light or white wines. All these items can soak into the pores of the granite leaving stains and possibility producing a foul odor. Other common staining items include orange juice, coffee and cream.

Preventing Stains on your Granite Countertops

Once you have installed granite countertops, you will want to do a few things to ensure you are protecting them from possible staining. One of the best ways to do this is to seal your countertops biannually or as needed. You can find granite-sealing products where you purchased your countertops or even local hardware stores. Granite is extremely porous so without being properly sealed, you can risk having you countertops easily stained or watermarked.

It is also imperative to clean your granite countertops regularly after each use. Never use abrasive sponges or cleansers on your countertops. Clean granite with mild soap and water and a soft towel. Cleaning immediately after use will help keep your granite in good shape.

Stain Removal on your Granite Countertops

Of course, no matter how careful you are, you may eventually end up with a stain on your beautiful granite countertops. Should this happen it is best to address the stain as quickly as possible to have the best chance of effectively removing the stain.

A common agent that helps to remove stains from granite countertops is acetone. Acetone is helpful in removing peanut butter, cream, and fruit juices as long as you follow specific directions on how to use the acetone effectively on your countertops.

If you have decided to have granite countertops in your home, understanding how to use them and clean them properly can be the best way to ensure your granite countertops stay beautiful for years to come.  This video can help you see how to remove stains from your granite countertop as well as cleaning tips for basic upkeep. 

3 Things to Look at When Viewing a Home

by Randy Gridley

3 Things to Look at When Viewing a Home

With a few clicks of your mouse, if you are in the market for a new home, you will likely be viewing many homes available on the market. It is good practice to make yourself a list of things to look at when viewing properties so you don’t miss anything. Consider adding these three things to your list.

  1. Location. Do you like the location? How near is it to amenities you like to utilize? Is the school close?  How close are the highways?
  2. Neighbors. Who lives next door? Are the surrounding homes comparable? Are there any run down homes nearby?
  3. Homeowners Association. Does the neighborhood have a homeowners association? What are the HOA limitations, requirements, and costs?

When you go to view homes, make sure you take notes of things you notice about the property as well as the surrounding area. Drive by the home during the evening and look at the house in the dark. Also consider visiting the neighborhood on the weekend. This will give you a better idea of what goes on in the neighborhood when everyone is home. Don’t be afraid to drive around the neighborhood and stop and talk to neighbors. Speaking to the neighbors can be a great way to find out if the area is one that you and your family will love.
