If you’ve opted to put granite countertops in your kitchen, you’ve made an excellent choice. These countertops are durable, beautiful, and can last for a long time. There are some things you need to do to ensure they stay in great condition for years to come. Here are some things to consider when you are thinking about maintaining your granite countertops.
For the majority of granite countertops, you will not need to apply a sealant. However, doing so can provide some benefits. Because your countertops are in your kitchen, you’ll want them to be resistant to spills. Sealants offer a protective layer that will offer not only a shield from spills, but peace of mind as well. You should make sure that the sealant you choose is a good one. There are many of them out there, and all of them have different levels of effectiveness. Choose a sealant resists oil and fat stains, which are commonly found on kitchen counters.
Usually when people get new countertops installed, they look great for the first few months but quickly deteriorate. This is because people are often too busy to clean their countertops regularly. Different obligations take up a lot of time, so naturally they aren’t free to complete this task. Also, as time goes on cleaning one’s countertops becomes less of a priority. When they are new, it’s a job many people are happy to do. After they’ve been in the home for a while, it often becomes less important. It’s important to consistently maintain your countertops.
How To Clean Them
When cleaning your granite countertops, you’ll want to get a soft cloth and a cleaner that is not too basic or acidic. Using an acidic cleaner will tarnish your granite countertop, despite how strong it is. This is also the case for using harsh scrubbers to do your cleaning. You can wear down the granite surface with the wrong sponge.
