Cleaning of countertops

For every day cleaning use mild dish soap, warm water and a soft cloth. There are also many spray cleaners available for natural stone use.
 

Sealing of countertops

All Slate countertops will be sealed before installation. 3 Guys Granite Inc. is an accredited applicator for STAIN-PROOF Original ™ sealer. STAIN-PROOF Original ™ is an impregnating, invisible and breathable sealer that protects exposed natural stone, tiles, pavers, concrete and grout from damage caused by water, salts and oil-based stains. Treated indoor and outdoor surfaces become easier to clean, maintain, and keep looking good for longer. STAIN-PROOF Original ™ provides lasting protection for natural stone.

If you think that your stone will need to be re-sealed, simply put a few drops of water on your countertop and wait for 15-20 minutes. If you can see that the water has been absorbed into the top it’s time to re-seal. The sealer that we use is estimated to be affective for approximately 15 years.
