When it comes to keeping Granite worktops counters bug-free, it’s not simply about wiping down a surface after preparing food; how many of us plonk our handbags, briefcases or the kids’ school bags on the kitchen top? Or the shopping bags which have been in the boot of the car? Essentially, there are plenty of ways in which a worktop can become contaminated with nasty bacteria aside from cooking. That’s why we need to clean every day.
On a daily basis, wiping down with a soft, microfibre cloth and hot, soapy water or a product that has been specifically formulated for granite worktops (such as Method Daily Granite or Lakeland’s Daily Granite Cleaner) should be perfectly adequate. You are looking for a pH-balanced product that cleans while leaving the granite shiny. Soapy water is fine, but you may need to buff any streaks away afterward. Steer clear of bleach or any products which contain an acidic ingredient, like lemon juice or vinegar as this could harm the granite.
To begin removing your granite worktops, locate the joint between the front brace of the cabinet and the bottom of your countertop at a corner. Look up inside the face of the cabinet to see it. Tap the end of the pry bar into this joint with the hammer. Pry gently up to loosen any glue. If there is plywood under the granite, work underneath it to remove the granite from the plywood or remove them together, if you were able to remove the screws that hold the wood platform in place. Follow this by tapping a wooden shim into the now open joint, to hold the countertop up in that spot. Work along the front edge, prying and shimming, until the whole front edge is slightly lifted.
Move further inside the cabinets. Starting at the front and moving back use the pry bar to lift the granite, or plywood and granite, away from the top of the cabinet supports. Add shims as you go. Go slowly to avoid cracking. Work along the length of the countertop, only prying up the next few inches back. Continue working in sections, from end to end, until the entire countertop has been lifted.
At least one person every 3 to 4 feet of countertop along the front edge of the counter. Work together to slowly tilt the countertop up from the back edge, so that it tips into the hands of the waiting workers. Lift gently and move the granite to your storage place.
Set the granite with the top face down for protection. If there is plywood underneath that needs replacing, pry it carefully away from the granite. Work slowly to separate the glue and remove the plywood. Scrape any additional plywood or glue from the bottom of the granite with a heavy-duty
