Swift Granite Care for Pre-Holiday Prep

Another month of 2014 is in the books and that means it’s time to start preparing for another holiday that’s just a few weeks away. For many, the Thanksgiving holiday continues to be a favorite because of the retention of its traditional roots, including the gathering of friends and family for fellowship. Even today, the joining of loved ones around a turkey, stuffing and a multitude of delicious sides gives it some resemblance to the classic Normal Rockwell depiction of the holiday. For others, Thanksgiving is less about the eating and more about making time to give back to the community and provide a needed service to others. No matter how you celebrate the holiday this year, Thanksgiving is the perfect time to mindfully pause in gratitude for our many blessings, including a day that places an emphasis on family, friends, good food and togetherness.

Holiday Prep Made Easy

If you’re one of the many who will be hosting a Thanksgiving dinner at your home this month, you may have already began the preparations for the traditional holiday gathering. But long before the turkey is stuffed or the potatoes are mashed there also comes the task of cleaning before the guests arrive. While the cleaning isn’t as enjoyable as the cooking part of the holiday, it is the perfect time to restore the “just installed” look to your granite surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom. By using the Rock Doctor line of granite products, the restoration process is even easier than you may think.

Clean, Polish, Seal and Protect

Here at Rock Doctor, we are frequently asked by consumers how often to use the Rock Doctor products and in what order they should be applied. Cleaning of any granite surface begins with an even application of Rock Doctor Granite & Quartz Cleaner. Wipe down the granite surface using a clean soft dry cloth or a paper towel. Rock Doctor Granite & Quartz Cleaner is safe for the kitchen and bath and can be used every day without leaving any residue that could cloud the surface. After cleaning, apply a small amount of Rock Doctor Granite & Quartz Polish with a clean, dry cloth. A small amount goes a long way to restoring the beautiful shine of newly installed granite surfaces. For an even higher shine, buff the granite surface a second time with the cloth. Rock Doctor Granite & Quartz Polish creates a water-resistant coating on the granite surface, making it the perfect solution to guard against etching, spills and glass rings unintentionally left behind by holiday guests. Specialized emollients and carnauba wax fill in any tiny imperfections in the stone to restore luster and smoothness.

To further protect the stone surface, consider adding an application of Rock Doctor Granite & Stone Sealer. This is especially important if it’s been more than a year since you last sealed the granite surfaces. The water-based Rock Doctor Granite & Stone Sealer bonds with the natural granite to form a barrier against moisture and other elements, letting you enjoy your guests without worries.
