Use area rugs or non-slip mats at entranceways on granite floors to help in removing dirt, mud or sand from shoes. Also sweep, dust mop and vacuum the floors whenever possible. This also gets rid of dirt and grime to help slow down or prevent any type of deterioration.
Mop the floor with a mild soap and water mixture. Using just plain water might be enough for granite tile floors, according to some professionals. Although granite is resistant to stains and scratches, daily cleanings, whether with a broom, dust mop or wet mop, adds special care, especially if you have kids or pets.
Granite is also easy to clean. The stain resistant surface is evident when you simply use mild soap or a degreaser to remove a temporary stain.
Still, you need some guidelines for stain removal of any stone surface. Act fast when you notice a stain. Despite the protective nature of granite, it’s always good to err on the side of caution. Use a white cloth or paper towel to blot, but don’t rub. Avoid unnecessary chemicals.
