Cleaning Your Premium Surface Stone

How to Clean Granite, Quartzite, Slate, Soapstone & Sandstone

  • Use warm water and a small amount of non-abrasive soap (mild detergent).
  • Rinse with warm water.
  • Dry thoroughly with a clean soft cloth.


How to Clean Precious Stones

  • Use warm water & a small amount of neutral pH non-abrasive soap
  • Rinse with clear warm water
  • Dry thoroughly with a clean soft cloth

    *Please note: Cleaners & disinfectants made especially for silca/quartz based stones are available at most home centers, hardware stores and stone fabrication shops.


Stain Treatment

  • Contact Builtmore for the best method to remove stains from your natural stone.


Sealing Your Stone

  • Natural Stone’s durability is complemented with regular sealing.
  • Contact Builtmore for recommendations.


Food Preparation Areas

In food preparation areas, the stone may need to have a penetrating sealer applied. If a sealer is applied, be sure that it is non-toxic and safe for use on food preparation surfaces.


Bathroom and Other Wet Areas

  • In the bath or other wet areas, soap scum can be minimized by using a squeegee after each use.
  • To remove soap scum, use a non-acidic soap scum remover or a solution of ammonia and water.
  • Frequent or over use of an ammonia solution may eventually dull the stone surface.
