Avoid setting hot pans onto the countertop and use mild dishwashing detergent (or an ammonia-based cleaner) for daily care. Use a damp cloth and towel drying to remove watermarks. Consider the use of diluted bleach for difficult stains and disinfecting.
Don't pour hot water directly into sink. Run cold water while doing so to minimize risk. Use the same countertop cleaning steps to keep your sinks clean daily. For more difficult stains you can also fill the sink 1/4 of the way full with 50/50 water and bleach, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then wash down the sides before rinsing.
Do this whenever you have stains that do not come clean with other cleaning methods. Be sure to ask our licensed and insured professionals about any limitations on your countertops and sinks.
