Some types of granite require sealing, but many never do. Consult with our experts here at Raby Home Solutions to learn more. For example, black granite countertops are often so dense that they don’t require a seal, while white granite countertops tend to be more porous and susceptible to stains. If your granite countertops do require a seal, the process is simple.
Always blot up spills immediately. Never use household cleaners unless they are specifically formulated for natural stone and granite. You can typically clean your granite surfaces effectively with nothing more than a soft cloth or sponge and hot water. Don’t use soap, bleach, degreasers, glass cleaners, vinegar, ammonia, acids, ammonias, powders or creams, as these can degrade your seal, dull the surface, and cause stains. Once per week, remove all items on your countertop and use a granite-specific cleaner to remove debris and condition your stone.
