How often should granite counter tops be sealed?
There are literally hundreds of different granites in existence. Some are extremely porous and some are so dense they don’t absorb anything. Most homeowners are not sure what they have. If you are not sure, then to be on the safe side, you should have the granite cleaned and sealed once every year or two. When you call Blackstone Marble Care Ltd. to have a look at your granite, we will be totally upfront with you and let you know if your particular granite needs sealing or not. We can also discuss any other concerns you may have or give our recommendations for any repairs, polishing or restoration that may be needed.

Does your granite REQUIRE restoration?
Restoration of granite is no easy task. Granite is very a hard stone. If your granite is in your home, it usually will maintain a high shine for many years without showing damage. The same is true on most counter tops. Dull patches will show up in high usage areas first. We can usually polish these out fairly quickly. If the damage is severe and there are deeper scratches to remove, then restoration can take a much longer time. For example, a granite floor can take 4 to 10 times longer to refinish than a typical marble floor. We can do a site inspection to determine what exactly it will take, how long and the total costs involved. You can rest assured that if we restore your granite, the end result will make it all worth it.
CARING FOR YOUR GRANITE
Granite can and should be cleaned daily using the same process as for marble. For granite we recommend cleaning the surface using a quality stone safe neutral stone cleaner. These can be purchased at almost any Tile & Stone Showroom.
For commercial lobby floors not only can we provide full restoration but also ongoing maintenance to help keep your granite floors looking their best.
