graniteGranite countertops are a great investment for upgrading the appearance of your kitchen and home overall. Granite lasts for decades, it can look and function as well as it did on day one with proper cleaning and sealing. Proper maintenance and cleaning is key to ensuring the lifespan of your quality countertops.

Sealing Granite

Granite needs to be re-sealed in regular 6 months to 1 year intervals. Re-sealing your countertops will help retain its smooth surface and keep it well protective. If you use harsh chemicals on the granite it may weaken the sealant or start wearing it away which will mean your countertops will need to be re-sealed more often.

A good way to test your seal is to drop a few droplets of water on your countertop and wait a couple of minutes to see what happens. If you find the droplets are gone, they have absorbed into your granite and it is time to re-seal your countertops.


“This is clearly a local small business with an owner who prides himself on exceptional customer service. David, the owner and operator, was very up front about pricing – but in the end charged me less as he could not use full strength cleaning solutions for fear of damaging the natural material of my couch. Not only was he punctual, he even followed up with me a few days later to see if I was satisfied. I would definitely recommend him and will look forward to using his other services as his business expands.”
