For daily cleaning we recommend using a cleaner made specifically
for stone. Do not use household
cleaners or products with ammonia
and vinegar. Constant use
of these chemicals will eventually create a film that is very difficult
to remove. Dark spots may occur when something is left long enough to
soak in. Most water based liquids will evaporate quickly. Oils and Acids
should be wiped up as soon as possible. We seal all of our jobs with an
impregnating sealer that lasts at least up to 10 to 15 years. No need
to reseal every year. In the rare occassion that a stain occurs, a poultice
may be used to try to remove the stain.
Please read the What Is Granite page for more information
my counters need resealed?
As stated above, the sealer we apply lasts up to at least 10 to 15 years.
Keep in mind, 90% of granite is so dense, the sealer we apply doesn't
even take to the granite. With that said, sometimes there are some stones
that need a little more attention. To know if your stone needs sealer,
all you have to do is the 1 minute water test. Spill
some water on your counters for about 1 minute or so and then wipe off.
If the water left a dark spot on your stone just from sitting there for
1 minute, your stone could use an application of sealer. This is very
easy to do yourself or you can hire us to do it.
