Like all natural stone, granite is a porous stone, therefore it absorbs so it can get stained. With other sealers offered in the market, homeowners have to apply rejuvenators and special cleaners at least once a year just to maintain some type of protection on their granite. In most cases, the required annual re-application is forgotten…until damage occurs. We have the solution! With a single application you will receive over 15 years of protection. This means that you can protect your granite once and forget about it. Granite is meant to be enjoyed, not slaved over.
Know more about why you should use granite sealer
Granite is a semi-porous material and needs to be protected and maintained. If unsealed, your granite countertop can absorb water or grease, which will create permanent stains. Granite sealer prevents this by penetrating deep into the granite countertop and closing off its pores so that stains cannot get in.
After we install your granite countertops, the first granite seal has already been applied to your granite countertop. This is a normal sealer and will last 3 – 6 months, depending on your countertop use, unless a 15 year sealant or lifetime sealant is applied.
Applying a normal granite sealer to your countertop is not difficult. All you need is some time, a clear impregnating granite cleaner and sealer, and a soft white rag.
Depending on use, your granite countertops need to be resealed every 3 – 4 months, or several times a year. Before you reseal your countertops, be sure to clean your countertop and remove any stains. If you seal your granite before you remove a stain, you will seal the stain permanently into the granite.
You will be able to tell if your granite needs to be resealed by one simple test. Dap a few drops of water onto your countertop and watch how quickly the water is absorbed. If it forms into a bead and stays on top of the granite, your granite countertop does not need to be sealed. If it starts to be absorbed or can easily be spread into the countertop and disappear, then you need to seal your granite.
