AGM Granite Countertops Care and Maintenance

3 Misconceptions About Granite Maintenance

Clean Up Spills and Stains Immediately


False. Many companies recommend cleaning up food spills immediately for fear of absorbing into the stone. Yes, while you want to of course clean up any harmful bacteria or harsh chemicals - AGM's granite comes with a 15 year DuPont seal that protects the integrity of the stone's surface and minimizes your stress and anxiety about permanent stain damage.

Use Trivets, Coasters, and Placemats to Protect Your Counter Tops


False. This is really addressing scratches, scorching and heat resistance to hot pots and pans. See our burn, scratch and scorch video below for clarification. You might want to be cautious on lighter granite colors but granite as a whole is very durable - stain, scratch and scorch resistant.

You Must Use a Cleaner for Stone Only


False. AGM's granite is sealed so all that is needed is a mixture of 1 parts rubbing alcohol to 2 parts water. Harsh chemicals aren't needed unless you have some dried or heavy stains of concern - mild detergent works just fine.
