The Most Important Thing for New Granite Countertops – PROTECTION!
Protect Your Investment – Use Professional Grade Impregnating Sealers
By Torin Dixon
Ok, you just had beautiful granite or marble countertops installed, or you just bought a house with stone countertops. Make the best decision before you start using your new counters, PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT by treating your counters with a Professional Grade product.
HMK Stone Care was the first worldwide company to produce Professional Stone Care products. Made in Germany, and distributed ONLY by Stone Professionals, HMK S34 Impregnator is the ONLY impregnator I recommend for any natural stone surface.
For the past 30-plus years, I have tested all the other brands. Nothing performs like HMK S43 Silicone Impregnator. To get the best results, order our Free Sealing Guide to apply S34 properly.
Once you have treated your granite countertops, you can breath easier, not worrying about minor spills and stains. The key is to clean up any spills as quickly as possible.
TIP: Do not use dish soap to clean countertops. Think about this….dish soap works GREAT to cut greasy pans and dishes. How? By using heavy duty HIGH ALKALINE detergents. Many liquid dish soaps are pH 11-14. High alkaline cleaners will break down the needed protection of Stone Impregnators.
For best results, use a pH Neutral cleaner made specifically for stone. I suggest using HMK P24 Liquid Stone Soap. Simply pour a capful of P24 into a 16-20 ounce spray bottle, add water, then Spray & Wipe with a dry towel. That is all you need for daily cleanup.
