Learn How to Take Care of Granite Countertops

Learn how to take care of granite countertops without using expensive granite cleaners.

We show you how easy it is to maintain your natural stone investment.

Granite countertops are a beautiful and an expensive investment that bring long lasting enjoyment for all who have them installed in their home.

Granite countertops are porous and can be susceptiple to staining. Using a granite countertop sealer that protects your granite from possible staining is essential.

Believe it or not the color of your granite countertop does matter. In general, darker colors tend to be more dense and therefore less porous.

Care of Granite Countertops

Even though it's probably easier to take care of granite countertops that are darker in color, they still need to be sealed and properly cared for.

Lighter colored granites are usually less dense, which will make them more porous.

Even if the lighter colored granites are sealed properly, they still may absorb liquids.

Remember not use vinegar or windex when cleaning your countertops, as the acidity of the products can break down the sealer.

Try a great granite countertop cleaner that won't deteriorate your sealer and that cleans with out streaking.

For maintaining the high polish and adding an invisible barrier to help protect your granite countertops from finger prints and smudge marks, use a granite countertop polish.

When you learn how to take care of granite countertops you will have nothing to worry about and will feel at ease with maintaining them.

As a home owner the most damaging things you can do to your granite countertop is either scratch them or stain them.
