The durability that granite countertops offer is only one of the reasons it is one of the top choices in many homeowner’s kitchens. This natural stone is also beautiful and can be found in many different colors and patterns. Many people love the way that granite countertops look and feel in their kitchens. However, just because it is a natural stone doesn’t mean that there is no maintenance involved to keep it beautiful. Silver State Floor Restoration is here to talk about what can be done to keep your granite countertops pristine and in like new condition.
Cleaning & Restoring Granite Countertops
One of the most beautiful things about granite is the fact that there are no two slabs that are alike. For this reason, there is no restoring process that is exactly the same either. Since this is a natural stone, the process usually follows some pretty basic steps. Here is what you can expect when you have your granite cleaned and restored.
– Cleaning the Granite: The first step in the restoration process is going to be a thorough cleaning. Your stone specialist will ensure that the surface is completely clean and ready for the next step before moving on.
– Granite Stain Removal: If it has been a long time since you last had your granite countertops maintained, there are probably some stains that are visible and need to be removed. There are abrasive compounds that are made specifically for granite that can be used to remove any staining.
– Repairing Granite Cracks & Chips: Just because granite is one of the strongest natural stones out there, doesn’t mean that it is invisible. Natural stone is still subject to cracking and chipping. This doesn’t mean that it can’t be fixed though. There are epoxies and polishes that can be used to remedy the situation and leave your stone looking like new again. This leaves any cracking and chipping nearly invisible when the process is complete.
– Polishing & Sealing Granite: It is extremely important with granite that it is polished and sealed on a regular basis. This will help you avoid future staining and damage to your granite countertops. Using a dustless polishing method, you really won’t be able to see any of the damage that was done before the cleaning and restoration process began. The sealing process will then reduce the size of the pores in the granite and prevent future problems for you. This will also make the granite easier to clean in the future.
