Natural stone materials like marble, granite, and tile are very long lasting, but are not invulnerable. Therefore, it is suggested to get the granite sealed before installation or during the installation to keep its beauty intact for long run. Sealing will help in keeping the granite away from staining and keep their look attractive for years.
Granite looks smooth and plain while touching it, but in reality it has many invisible microscopic holes and continuous fall of liquid can harm it over the time. Any liquid or food material poured on unsealed granite countertop can get stuck if not cleaned soon, and then can damage the countertop’s beauty.
It is very important to apply sealant on your granite countertop at the right time. It is better to get the granite sealed before installing sink, appliances, and cabinets. Sealing granite after installation is a cumbersome task and will leave edges. It is also good to get your countertop sealed again when moving to a preoccupied house.
Granite sealing also have a longevity defined and it requires sealing to get redone over a period of time. The best way to judge if your countertop would require a resealing or not, is to drip some water on surface. If the surface will absorb the water then resealing is required. It is always preferred to get your countertop sealed by a professional who will now the job better and will do it without any flaw.
