Granite Sink Restoration Using NuVibrants, R&D 1
In December of 2021, the Supreme Surface Cleaners Helpline received a call from a customer struggling to remove a white haze on her black composite sink. The sink was nearly brand new and under-mounted beneath white quartz countertops.
Before calling, she tried using several cleaning products but couldn't remove the white haze. While diagnosing the issue, our Stone Care Pro, Tom Munro, suggested a two-step deep cleaning to rule out the possibility of calcium or lime mineral deposits. This is done with the Supreme Surface Composite Granite Sink Cleaners Care and Maintenance Kit.
- Step-1 Scum and Mineral Deposit Remover
- Step-2 Granite Quartz & Marble Treatment with ioSeal
Note: This is all she will need to clean, shine and protect a sink that has cleaning issues, and is not already damaged.
The first step is to spray the Supreme Surface Scum and Mineral Deposit Remover onto a dry sink and allow it to sit for 15 minutes or more, keeping it moist. After allowing it to sit, we recommend agitating the surface, rinsing, drying, and repeating as many times as necessary until the sink stops changing (for better or worse).
After several applications, the sink looked better, but several areas still had a white or chalk-like haze that wasn't going away. She was told that if the white fog looks good when wet but not so good when dry, it's a damaged sink and not a cleaning issue. Why? Because mineral deposits will not turn black when wet. Although she can oil the sink every day or two in the future, in this case, she has the option to restore the composite sink as a long-term repair. We explained two options:
- Restore her composite sink using a 3-step process that includes Supreme Surface Composite Granite Sink Cleaners Care and Maintenance Kit with the Miracle 511 Seal and Enhance
- Rejuvenate the look of her composite sink using a 3-step process that includes Supreme Surface Composite Granite Sink Cleaners Care and Maintenance Kit with NuVibrants.
