How To Clean Flamed Granite

As granite that has been flamed has been treated to ensure a particular finish, it is important that you exercise caution when attempting to clean the stone so that you don’t damage its appearance. By following the below maintenance schedule, you can ensure that your granite lasts you for many years to come.


  • Wipe down the bench using a cloth that you have dampened with cold water. Wipe over the bench with a dry cloth to remove any moisture.
  • Run a dust mop over granite floors to collect loose dust, dirt and other debris that as accumulated.


  • Fill a bucket with warm water and add three or four drops of a mild dishwashing detergent. Dip in a clean cloth and use it to wipe down the granite, then rinse with a cloth dipped in plain water (work in sections so that the soap doesn’t dry on the stone).


  • In a spray bottle, mix together a quarter of a cup of isopropyl alcohol and two or three drops of a mild dishwashing detergent. Fill the remainder of the bottle with warm water and shake. Spray the cleaner onto the granite and wipe down with the clean cloth.

If you prefer, it is possible to purchase a specialty granite cleaner for using on your flamed granite. You just need to make sure that you steer clear of abrasive cleaners (such as products that contain lemon, vinegar and bleach), as these can be severely damaging to the stone.
