Virginia Granite Countertop Maintenance /How to care for your countertops

The Marble Institute of America recommends cleaning with just warm soap and water and resealing once a year depending on use and type of stone.
There are good cleaners and sealers available to use for Natural Stones. Be sure to use the ones recommended for your type of stone. Different stones require different care and maintenance.
