Cleaning Stone Fireplaces
Depending on the type of stone used, your fireplace hearth will require different kinds of care and cleaning.
How to Clean a Granite Fireplace
Granite, while durable, can be stained, scratched, or scorched if not cleaned properly. Wipe up spills, ash, and dust with a soft, damp sponge or cloth, and avoid leaving hot fireplace pokers on the granite. It’s generally best to clean your granite fireplace hearth every week to keep it looking its best:
- Use a bowl of warm water mixed with a small amount of dish soap
- With the soft side of a sponge, wipe down the granite and scrub any tough spots or grout lines
- Replace the soapy water with clean water
- Wipe down the granite again to remove all soap
- Dry the hearth with a clean, soft towel
Some people choose to perform a more thorough cleaning monthly using special granite cleaner. To remove stains from granite, try making a poultice.
How to Clean a Marble Fireplace
Marble is a naturally porous stone, meaning it tends to absorb liquids and spills and is prone to staining. Like granite, marble is best cleaned with a soft cloth or sponge rather than abrasive scrubbers, brushes, or cleaning chemicals.
- Brush off dust, dirt, and ash with a soft cloth
- Wipe down the marble using distilled water and a clean cloth, paying special attention to stains
- If any soot or marks remain, remove stains from marble with a poultice or special marble cleaner
