Maintaining Smooth Natural Stone Countertops


How do you get your natural stone countertops to be so smooth?


Is there any action needed to maintain the smoothness throughout the life of the countertops? 


By Interstone Marble and Granite Limited

The smooth natural matte stones to which you refer are likely honed.  That being said, polish makes the stone smooth as well. 

To maintain your stone, don’t use commercial household cleaners.  Just use warm water and a bit of mild detergent.  Also seal your natural stone regularly; once or twice yearly.  It’s easy!! 


At Interstone, we sell a multitude of sealers, enhancers, and specialty cleansers made especially for natural stone.

Natural stone needs to be sealed once or twice yearly? :S well that good to know for sure. Sealing the stone always sounded like something so permanent without need of upkeep or maintenance. I have been wanting to change things up in my house, and though I love the look of natural stone, but due to the amount of maintenance it requires...i'm starting to think I'll just get my husband to take care of it.
