For years, granite countertops have been among the most popular options for kitchens and baths for a good reason. Granite offers a natural beauty that is hard to mimic, and it is also scratch and heat resistant. Though porous, once properly sealed, granite ensures that bacteria, dirt, and other grime will not soak in. Spills are not a problem, and you don’t have to worry about stains ruining your beautiful surfaces.

New granite countertops give your room an instant upgrade, boosting the value of your home. If you are looking to add luxury to your kitchen and bath, consider the elegance of granite. Although new countertops are typically one of the big-ticket items on the wish list for a kitchen or bath remodel, they can outlast most of your home’s other materials, making them a cost-effective, long-term solution.


Granite Countertop Maintenance

Are you located in West Michigan, and interested in getting new countertops? Then you should consider granite.

Granite is a natural stone that makes durable, beautiful counters for the bathroom or kitchen. Of course, being natural stone, granite requires some special care to keep it hygienic and looking its best. Fortunately, we’re experts in granite and porcelain maintenance and can give you the lowdown.


Granite is such a high-quality material that is needs to be sealed ever six to 12 months, depending on usage.

One thing to keep in mind is that all granite is porous. That means they can absorb liquids, which can be an issue if you choose a lighter granite color, as it can stain more easily. There’s also the risk of bacteria living in tiny crevices. Sealing prevents absorption, thereby keeping your countertop pristine.

It may also need periodic resealing. This process is usually done annually.

Stain Removal

You should try to clean up spills immediately to prevent staining. If staining does occur, you’ll need a poultice to get it out since the discoloration goes beyond the surface. A poultice is a chemical recipe that dissolves the substance causing the stain. Because there are different recipes for different substances, it’s essential you do your research before tackling a stain.

Daily Cleaning

For most situations, hot water and a soft cloth are all you need for daily cleaning. You should avoid harsh chemicals, as they may not only damage the natural stone but remain in crevices and transfer to food items set on the counter. You should also avoid abrasive scrubbing materials, as these can leave scratches on the surface.

If you want your granite to retain its beautiful shine, you should also avoid using soap as much as possible. Soap scum accumulates over time, dulling your countertop’s natural luster.

Chips and Scratches

To avoid chips and scratches, you should always use a cutting board. Additionally, you want to avoid putting anything hot on the surface, such as a pan fresh off the stove.
