Why reseal your granite countertops?
Granite countertops are a popular choice for kitchen and bathroom surfaces because of their durability and natural beauty. However, they do require some maintenance to keep them looking their best. One important task is to reseal your granite countertops on a regular basis.
Granite is a porous stone, which means that it can absorb liquids and stains if it is not properly sealed. Sealing your granite countertops will protect them from damage caused by spills and stains. Additionally, it will help prevent bacteria and other contaminants from penetrating the surface of the granite. NOVA Stone Care offers many natural stone restoration and maintenance services including resealing of granite countertops.
When to reseal granite countertops
It is recommended to reseal granite countertops every 1-2 years, depending on the amount of use and the color of the granite countertops. You can also check if your granite countertop needs resealing by performing a simple water test. Pour a small amount of water on the surface of the granite and observe how it is absorbed. If the water beads up and does not penetrate the surface, then your granite is still protected by the sealer. If the water is absorbed into the granite, then it is time to reseal.
Resealing your granite countertops is an important part of maintaining their beauty and durability. Regular resealing will protect your granite from damage caused by spills and stains. It will also prevent bacteria and other contaminants from penetrating the surface of the granite. Make sure to contact NOVA Stone Care.
