How to Care For Marble and Granite Counters (Shelby Township, MI)

┬áDuring the last decade, all upscale kitchens and bathrooms have moved towards solid surface counter tops, with a focus on natural stone materials like granite and marble. Walk into any designer home, and you’ll find very earthy kitchens and bathrooms with earth tones, tile and slate surfaces, and of course counters. But cleaning and caring for polished stone surfaces is different than wiping down an old formica or butcher block counter. Marble and granite need special sealants and cleaners to keep them looking their best and maintaining their good looks over the years.

The first step is to apply a stone sealant – many times this is done initially when the counter is installed by the stone professional. Unsealed granite is semi-porous, and wine, grease, water and other liquids can be absorbed causing stains, especially on lighter colored stones. However, even the polished finish of black granite can show the marks of liquid absorption stains. Using a sealant, the pores of the stone are “sealed”, shielding the counter from damage. Most professionals recommend sealing your granite and marble every year. You can test for yourself by placing a few water drops on the clean counter and seeing if they retain their perfect bubble shape after 15 or 20 minutes – if they have begun to spread out and diffuse, chance are your counter is absorbing some liquid. Most granite sealants come in spray form, but some also come in liquid. You either spray or wipe them liberally on the surface of the counter, allow to set in, and then apply a second coat (follow the directions on your specific sealant product) if needed, allow to stand, then wipe off and clean counter as normal.
