  • Do clean surfaces with mild PH neutral detergent or stone soap​
  • Do thoroughly rinse and dry the surface after washing​
  • Do blot up spills immediately, sealers help resist stains, but they are not immune to everything.
  • Keep your stone sealed on a regular basis. We recommend re-sealing every 1-2 years for granite. Quartz is not sealed.



  • Don’t use vinegar, lemon juice, bathroom, grout, tub, and tile cleaners that have acidic properties on your stone​
  • Don’t use abrasive cleaners such as dry or soft cleansers
  • Don’t mix bleach and ammonia; this combination creates a toxic and lethal gas



​Spills: Blot with a paper towel immediately. Do not wipe the area, doing so will spread the spill. Flush the area with water, and dry it with a soft cloth and repeat the process if necessary.

Please do not attempt to fix a scratch, chip, nick, or stain on your own, doing so may make the problem worse. Please contact a TVG professional to ensure your issue is resolved correctly.
