When it comes to the holiday season, we should all deserve the chance to relax and enjoy our time with family and friends. Unfortunately, one issue that is often not talked about when it comes to having a large number of family members coming in and out of your space, is the impact the traffic can have on your space. This includes but is certainly not limited to the impact it will have on your natural stone countertops and floors. While the holidays are quickly approaching, you may wonder what you can do in order to preserve the health and appearance of your natural stone surfaces. Listed below are tips you can use this season in order to help protect your stone:
Invest In Coaster For Natural Stone Countertops: One of the most overlooked causes of damage to natural stone countertops such as marble, quartz, and granite- is the moisture left behind from drinks on countertops. When your family and friends have gathered together to celebrate the holiday season, the welfare of your natural stone surfaces understandably will not be the most prominent concern on your guest’s minds. This is why it is important to take a preemptive stance on protecting your natural stone surfaces. One of the best things you can do is supply your guests with coasters and remind them gently to use them for all of their beverages this holiday season.
Act Fast On Spills: Natural stone is vulnerable to acidic materials and other potential outside influences. If you are having friends and family over for dinner and drinks, spills may be an unavoidable disrupt in your gathering. It is important to address all spills quickly and efficiently to minimize the impact they can have on your natural stone surfaces.
Protect Your Natural Stone Against Heat: By using hot pads and other protective layers between the food you serve and your natural stone surfaces you are decreasing your chances of having severe damage on your natural stone surfaces. One of the leading causes of damaged stone countertops is hot pots and pans being placed directly onto natural stone surfaces. Invest your time and energy into providing guards for all of your pots, pans, and serving dishes this holiday season.
Seal Your Countertops: The best way to protect your natural stone surfaces against outside influences this holiday season is to ensure you have a strong seal on your natural stone. If you have not had your natural stone countertops sealed in the last 6-12 months, you are overdue. Do not leave your granite, marble, quartz, or other natural stone counter vulnerable this holiday season. Instead, contact the natural stone professionals at Modern Stone Care to help you protect your surfaces.
