Granite Color, Texture, and Resilience Anchors a Room

The look of granite, with its color, texture, and resilience, can really pull the look of a room together. Granite is a natural stone that offers homeowners a sense of timeless elegance and beauty, along with durable service. This can be especially appropriate for the places in your home that really see a lot of traffic, get a good deal of daily use, or that you would like to highlight as a focal point.

Caring for Granite Surfaces

Caring for natural stone surfaces is necessary. Even though granite is a sturdy building material, it is not impervious to damage. Regular use includes proper cleaning along with the use of sealers to prevent stains.

Sealing granite stone is a simple process that homeowners can do every three to five years. You can test the stone to see if it needs resealing by placing a water-soaked cloth on the counter and wait five minutes. If the stone becomes dark in that spot, it is time to (re)seal.

If there is a liquid spilled that may stain the stone, it should be wiped up as soon as possible. Should a stain occur, a paste could be used to try to remove it. A stone that has a honed finish may be more susceptible to staining. Proper care can keep your granite surfaces looking and performing their best.
