Here are a few free tips to save you money right off the bat.
You do not need to use expensive cleaners for daily cleaning . As mush as I would like to sell you them , there is no need. A simple mix of a couple drops of anti bacterial dish soap in a squirt bottle filled with soft water will be suffice. You can use the cleaner on a bi weekly basis.
It is misconception that stone sealers enhance the look of your countertops. This is wrong, as you can over seal your counters creating a build up. In fact your causing the stone to dull. A good trick to know that your stone needs re sealing is to pour a small amount of water on the surface. If it beads up , the sealer is doing its job , if it slowly soaks in , time to re seal.
