Granite Cleaning, Sealing, and Polishing
Granite is a type of siliceous stone composed mainly of silica or quartz-like particles. It tends to be very durable and relatively easy to clean with mildly acidic cleaning solutions or mild soaps. There is not much maintenance required for granite other than having it sealed periodically. Granite is very resilient to etching and scratching but some granites are susceptible to staining from soaps and oils commonly found in kitchens and baths. Periodically cleaning and sealing your granite is the best preventative measure to keep these stains from penetrating your stone and leaving behind an unsightly stain.
Most sealers on the market require resealing anywhere from every 6 months to every 3 – 4 years. At Walter and Sons, we use the highest quality sealers on the market to ensure you get the most out of your granite and are getting what you pay for.
If in the unfortunate event your granite has been stained or lost its lustre, there are methods to potentially remove the stains and restore its finish.
