Care and Maintenance of Granite Worktops 

• All Classico Marble worktops leave the factory treated with a sealant that penetrates the stone and reduces the risk of staining. 
• Your Granite worktop should be cleaned regularly we would advise using mild soapy water, rinsed then dried with a soft clean cloth. 
• Do not leave spillages on your worktops wipe off using a kitchen towel many food products contain acids and colourings which if left can dull or stain the appearance of your surfaces. 
• Never use abrasive cleaning products on your surfaces also avoid bleach and alkaline based products 
• Never use lime scale removers on your worktops it will damage them 
• Wipe down your tops after use as this will reduce the risk of lime scale build up 
• Never cut and chop directly on your worktops as this will scratch over time use a chopping board it will also save the edges on your knifes 
• Never subject your worktops to excessive heat this will by putting hot pans directly onto them use hot rods or a trivet. Exposure to excessive heat can cause ring marks from pans blown crystals in the surface layers and even crack the work top. 
• Induction Hobs, please note these are a relatively new development and the way they work is to heat the pan rather than its contents. This means the pans are significantly hotter and even more care is required to ensure they are not put directly on the stone. 
• Avoid impacts with heavy objects they will chip edges place things carefully in under mount sinks avoiding the stone edges 
• Avoid point loading or excessive loading of the worktops they are fit for purpose as a kitchen work top they supported normally front and back on Carcass of the cupboards particular care should be taken to avoid leaning near the cut outs for the hob and sink, do not sit, kneel or stand on them they can break. 
• Surface pits in some granite are caused in manufacture this is where harder materials are popped out of the surface as they are cut into slabs. These are filled and then polished at the slab suppliers. These can be visible to the eye and felt when running a hand over the surface. These are normal and do not affect the use and durability or strength of the work top. The more crystalline the material the prevalent they are. 
• If you chip your worktops, in most cases a repair can be achieved but depending on the material it likely to be visible. (send a picture and we will provide an estimate of cost) 
• Colour of natural stone can vary widely and depending on the movement within the pattern may not be indicative of a sample provided we would recommend seeing a picture of the slab and in the cases where a lot of variation in pattern and colour are normal viewing the slabs prior to production is recommended.
