Sandstone countertops require proper installation and regular maintenance. One of the biggest issues with sandstone is that it is very porous and it is necessary to be properly sealed. If not sealed correctly the natural stone quickly absorbs water, oils, juices or other liquids.

Once the sandstone countertop is sealed the regular maintenance is fairly easy. It is almost the same like caring for a marble or concrete countertop. Spills should be wiped immediately and you can clean natural stone surfaces with mild soap and water.

The surface needs to be dried with a cloth after cleaning. Regular re-sealing is also required. Usually sealants last between three and seven years but you should ask your manufacturer what type of sealer is used on your countertop and when it should be resealed.
