Granite Gold for Granite and Stone
This has been an exciting year in the hardware business. I found so many exciting new products at The National Hardware Show and The Do It Best Show. It’s been fun telling you about each one of these new products and how it will save you time and save you money. And that’s what this article is all about. It’s my job to show and explain simple ways to do a project.
Taking care of granite is not rocket science like they make you think. It’s simple as long as you have the right products. Granite Gold products are a family business of stone care installers, and restoration and I can’t think of anyone better than that to know about granite. They have a three- step process that includes daily cleaning, sealers, and polishers. If your granite is newly installed, I promise your installation will NOT include sealing the granite. So, seal it yourself with Granite Gold Sealer. Spray a three-foot area and wipe into the stone with a lint-free cloth. Buff dry with a lint-free cloth. I would repeat the process two more times. Granite Gold Sealer is food safe, non- toxic, non-acidic and biodegradable. Sealing will create a barrier to protect your stone against staining, etching and soil build up. I would suggest sealing at least once a year.
If you have older granite that does not shine like it used to, Granite Gold makes a polish that enhances shine and luster. Spray Granite Gold Polish onto stone surfaces and then buff with a paper towel or lint-free cloth and then wipe dry with another paper towel. You can use this polish on granite, marble and all other natural stone and quartz surfaces.
I would not be diligent if I didn’t include something about grout and an easy way to clean.
Almost every product on our shelves starts with a story, and DeepKlenz by Stonetech is no different. When vendors introduce a new product usually, they will send a sample for a retailer to try. Stonetech sent me a sample of DeepKlenz one day and I looked at it, gave it a “hmmm” and then put it on the top shelf of my office. It wasn’t until one of my employees who was tired of looking at the dirty tile under his desk asked if he could use it that to clean. I have to tell you I was not confident that anything would clean that tile. It has to be circa 1960, and I wasn’t sure what color the tile originally was.
After an hour my employee came and got me to show me the results. My mouth dropped open; the tile was clean and brighter than any of the other tile around his desk. His clean tile floor became the excitement in our store for the day. I cleaned under my mom’s desk. We found places in the store that our cleaning company had not been able to improve. By the end of the day, the DeepKlenz bottle was empty, and the employees were convinced that this cleaner was miles ahead of other tile cleaners.
DeepKlenz is a professional strength water-based formula that easily removes deep and stubborn stains in grout and natural stone. You can use it on masonry, tile and grout, marble, granite, quartz and limestone, porcelain, and ceramic. When you are cleaning grout, use a wallpaper brush and clean three feet at a time instead of inches using a toothbrush.
And it’s as simple as that! Remember everything is easy if you know how to do it, and you have the right product. And that’s my job to tell you about it. Your job is to follow through and one other thing…. share your knowledge with your neighbor.
Now to the email….
