Is it time to re-seal my granite counters? Here’s how you can tell…
Granite is a desirable counter material because of its durability and grout-free design. But, that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Granite is a porous material and without being sealed properly, your counters will absorb oils, stains, and spills. That’s why along with regular cleaning, it’s important to make sure the sealant on your granite is in good condition and doesn’t need to be replaced.
You can determine the quality of your granite sealant using a simple test. One way to determine whether or not your countertops need sealant is to add several drops of water on top of the granite, in several locations. Let it sit for 30 minutes. If the water has penetrated the surface within and has darkened the granite, it is time to reseal. Other indicators include dull places on otherwise glossy countertops. Paying attention to the duration between the first couple of reseals can help you set a schedule for future maintenance.
