Mobile County Soapstone Countertops FAQ

There are special soapstone cleaners that you can get in the stores. However, this is not necessarily a must-have. For your Mobile soapstone countertops, cleaning is easy. You can just use a cloth specifically for that, and some water. However, while you are doing this, you also have to be careful not to have any abrasive cleaners. These can cause some serious damage to your countertops.

It is in fact, recommended that you oil the soapstone countertops from time to time. Your contractor will advise you on the nature of oil that should be used for this, the frequency of oiling and how it is to be done. Oiling your soapstone countertops is important in the sense that it will help the stone to darken evenly. When the soapstone darkens, the natural aging process it goes through is enhanced. Remember that oil is not a protectant, and soapstone does not need to be protected either.

Naturally and from the normal wear and tear, you can get scratches on your soapstone countertop. However, this is not a bad thing. Most of the scratches can, in fact, be concealed when you apply mineral oil. This will help you get an even tone for the countertops. For deeper scratches, which are less likely to occur, however, the alternative would be to sand them off.
