Granite composite sinks are hard, durable and resistant. Looking after them is quite simple. This article will explain how to properly care for your granite composite sink, from day-to-day care to deep cleaning to remove stains and buildup.
A granite composite sink, such as Silgranit by BLANCO, is modern, stylish, and extremely resistant and almost entirely scratch-proof. The Silgranit line of sinks is made up of 80 percent of the hardest component of granite. The surface of these sinks has antibacterial properties. These sinks are available in a lot of different colours and finishes, and they have the material dyed all the way through, meaning that severe scuffs, scratches, or staining foods, will not cause any discolouration to your sink. Limescale deposits can lead to discolouration, which you can remove with proper care and attention.
It is important to note the following when cleaning your granite composite sink:

If you wait too long to clean your granite-composite sink, limescale deposits will accumulate and become unsightly. Build-up typically gathers around the drain and the tap. It is easy to spot on darker sinks, and takes a while longer to build-up on lighter coloured sinks. In lighter sinks, the limescale eventually becomes discoloured (the colour of tea) and this is when it becomes noticeable. The following steps you can take to remove limescale buildup:
Even though granite-composite sinks are higher maintenance than sinks, they are a great choice thanks to their long-life, high durability and huge choice of colours. Granite sinks can withstand a lot, but over time they will start looking dull and discoloured if not taken care of. Getting into the habit of treating your sink with care will ensure it lasts for a long time, requiring far less time and attention in the long run.
