Granite Maintenance– What’s the Secret?

We all love it when our home is all cleaned up, especially the kitchen, where the chaos sometimes lingers, but we do not like to do the cleaning very often. And when it is the kitchen’s countertops or the bathtub we’re neglecting cleaning, it may lead to permanent stains to mark the stone it is made of. But not if it made out of granite! Nope, it is not hard at all to maintain a clean and beautiful granite, whether it be a kitchen counter, the bathroom walls or the bathtub. Here’s what it takes to maintain your granite in perfect condition.

Seal it Right after Installation

Once the granite is installed, it has to be cleaned with a rag and then be sealed with the appropriate sealer. The installer of the granite has to apply a granite sealer upon it, right after wiping it clean of dust which may accumulated from the installation, in order to prevent any type of dust or dirt to get into it. The sealer will preserve the granite for about a year, and so, it is recommended to apply it once a year and it is as simple as wiping the granite.

Daily Cleaning of Granite

The granite doesn’t require a special maintenance of any sort on the daily basis. You can simply wipe it with wet rag. Should oil or something similar spilled on it, you can wipe it with water and soap, and it will be like new again.

Its simple maintenance is one of the reasons most people chooses granite for their kitchens and bathrooms, as it is not only clean but also healthier for you and your family. Want to remodel your home with granite? Give us a call at: 702-868-6114 and our experts will be at your service.
