Keeping your granite countertops clean is important. You should wipe up any spills that occur as soon as possible, and you should regularly clean your countertops with warm, soapy water. You should then use a soft cloth to dry them.
However, sometimes your own efforts are not sufficient, or you may have moved into a home with a granite countertop that has not been well cared for by the previous tenants. Your granite countertops may have stains that you cannot get rid of. Cleaning is also an important first step in sealing your countertops so that they are better protected against spills. We can restore your countertops so they look like new.
Why Cleaning is Important
Granite may look solid, but it is actually a porous substance that can absorb liquid and breed bacteria. Sealant can protect it, but it must be done regularly, and cleaning is necessary in the meantime. Over time, your countertops can start to look less pristine as water, dirt, grime, oil and food are spilled and discolor the stone. Acids, such as wine, tea and coffee, can be particularly bad for stone countertops.
