Does your granite counter not clean up as easy as it did when first installed?
Natural granite is considered the countertop material of choice by many home owners and contractors alike. It is the latest materials that most homeowners want for their kitchens and elsewhere. But why is this? Quite simply, the versatility and ease of cleaning and care makes it so popular. But, improper care can result in loss of shine and natural beauty. People usually think of granite countertops as hard surfaces but they can be easily etched or stained if untreated. That is why a professional cleaning and sealing are the most important aspects to protect your investment against staining. We use only the highest professional grade sealers and cleaners on the market. Our granite sealer creates a protective coating that chemically bonds to the surface, creating a non-stick barrier that resists oil, staining and etching.
Assists in reducing both staining and etching of granite countertops. The sealer creates a protective barrier which assists in protecting the granite, helping to prevent the deterioration caused by staining and etching from contaminants including oils, grease and grime. As a result the time and frequency of cleaning the surface is reduced.
Maintenance costs are significantly reduced: As the sealer creates a long lasting non-stick coating which greatly reduces the time spent cleaning; maintenance costs are reduced.
Will the sealer prevent stains?
YES! The sealer provides both hydrophobic and oleophobic (water and oil repellency) protection, reducing both staining and etching on the surface of the granite countertops.
My granite is dull, will your service make it shine again?
YES AND NO! The sealer will put a slight shine back on the granite but we do not polish. The sealer leaves a protective coating that chemically bonds to the surface of the granite, creating a non-stick barrier that resists staining. It does make dull granite shine again and the cleaning of the granite is made easier and less frequent. The sealer is completely invisible and does not change or alter the appearance of the surface.
Will the sealer protect my granite from getting etched/water stains?
What is the best product for daily cleaning of my granite counter?
We recommend using a Neutral Tile and Stone Cleaner for daily cleaning.
How often should I seal my granite countertops?
The sealer is designed to last for 5 years but could go longer. There are many factors that go into the lifespan of the sealer so having it done every 3-5 years is a safe bet.
How do I know if my granite countertops are still sealed?
A good way to test the sealant's effectiveness on your granite countertops is to spill water on a small area. If the water beads up, granite countertops are still sealed. If the water starts to seep into the granite, causing the granite to appear darker, it is time to re-seal.
