Do you have granite counters in your home that are overdue for professional maintenance? Do you know how to tell if your seal has worn down? In this article we will discuss the 3 signs it is time to reseal your granite countertops.
How Long Has It Been?
In general, you will want to have all of your natural stone surfaces resealed every 12-24 months. The more you interact with the sealed surface, the more frequently the surface will require a fresh coat of sealant. Normal wear and tear will not damage your stone surfaces if they are properly sealed. When the seal begins to fade, damage can easily occur.
Cloudiness and Etch Marks
Have you noticed your natural stone surfaces are lacking their usual luster? Granite is a strong stone, especially when it is sealed. If your seal has begun to wear away you may notice the granite surface becoming cloudy and less vibrant. Additionally, you may notice etch marks from moving things against the surface of your counters.
At Modern Stone Care we work with you to preserve the beauty of your stone. We deep clean all stone surfaces and then seal them for protection against outside influences. Contact us today for your granite sealing service in Houston.
When granite is not protected with sealant, its porous surface will become highly susceptible to moisture causing liquids to absorb into the granite. Overtime, this liquid can lead to damage and the destruction of your stone.
Having a strong sealant is important to protect the stone from liquid penetrating below the surface. If you have noticed moisture rings forming under your glasses, this is a sign that you are overdue for a professional sealing.
