Uneven Floors Flattened

We can recommend or provide cleaners that are safe for your granite and educate you on its proper care.

Here are some suggestions to keep your natural stone looking like new:

  • Dust mop or vacuum with a soft bristled brush

  • Clean with a neutral pH cleaner
  • Always test any cleaner in an inconspicuous spot
  • Remember that some latex backed area rugs my discolor your stone
  • Area rugs with a rough or course backing may scratch your stone
