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 concerning Granite.


Do 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.
