Removing enhancer sealer from granite
Can Enhancing Sealer be removed? Can the granite be restored to its original appearance? We chose a beautiful exotic granite for our new home. The installer applied an enhancing sealer to the granite. The granite now has a different appearance, the veining is much more pronounced and the creamy white areas of the granite now have an ivory yellow appearance. Thank you for your assistance with these questions.
I can't be sure if you can remove the enhancing sealer, but you could try using acetone to see if that will work.
I would ask the contractor what is the brand name of the enhancing sealer and then call the company to ask them what product they recommend to remove the enhancing sealer.
I remember a number of years ago, we used an enhancing sealer that left some weird spotting.
It was from a company we used regularly and the company was able to find their chemist to find out what chemical would work to remove the enhancing sealer.
In our case, a chemical called Xylene, which can be bought in Home Depot was recommended to remove the enhancing sealer.
Again, call the manufacturer for advice on how to remove the enhancing sealer.
I hope this helps.
