“Fixing your granite floors and countertops can prevent major issues like moisture from causing irreversible damage like chips and cracks””
Excess moisture is the enemy to a granite countertop of floor surface; even if the surface of the granite is perfectly sealed excess water on the surface of the granite can still penetrate below below the surface level and into the stone, much like water condensates outside a cold glass of soda or any other liquid. Once this moisture penetrates into the stone it then becomes damaging its inner structure by weakening the natural bond between the molecules in the stone eventually causing cracks, chips and flaking on the granite countertop or floor surface.
“Although the pores on the surface of a polished granite are relatively closed this doesn’t mean that foreign substances like acids and chlorides can’t penetrate it. You can still have etching and stains caused by harmful acidic compounds from common day to day liquids used in the kitchen like orange juice, lemonade, soda, wine, detergents, etc.”
Stains and etching can be prevented simply by sealing your granite surface after it is polished. However a polished granite surface can still not be completely resilient against acid or oils spills, these can still be absorbed by the stone after the surface is sealed..
ATTENTION: any polished and sealed natural stone surface like granite can still be vulnerable to etching and stains after it is sealed. Given enough time foreign substances can erode away the barrier of sealer and create damage to the surface of the stone. A good granite protector or natural stone sealer is crucial to helping keep stains and etching from occurring so easily but the best policy is to wipe out any spills immediately after they occur; to do this simply blot the area where the spill happened with water, this helps you prevent spreading the spill furthermore.
Keep a good maintenance program according to your needs to avoid having to restore your floors as often. The more you wait, the more work it will take to restore a marble floor or countertop to its pristine original finish and condition. This means the difference between having to pay for restoration work vs. maintenance.
“A good periodic maintenance program is crucial in always keeping granite floors and countertops looking shinny, uniform, vibrant and alive”
There is no other material that can compare to a perfectly polished and smoothed granite surface. It signifies splendor, success, luxury when used on flooring and countertop surfaces. A cared-for, well-protected and maintained granite countertop can pass the test of time or so we can see in old world structures, sculptures and buildings like the Vatican in Rome, or the Pantheon in Athens just to name a few.
