Sealing Granite and Stone CountersRob Spiker
Granite Counters and Stone Sealant
Eco Clean Carpet and Tile Care has seen a huge increase in customers asking about sealing Granite counters and natural stone. We have been sealing stone for long enough to know that it needs to be done regularly and correctly. What If the sealer is applied incorrectly? Too much, too little and even cleaned incorrectly before the sealer is applied can cause irreversible problems. At Eco Clean Carpet and Tile Care we keep up to date with continual education, and informed with the cutting edge, industry standards to perform the best job available.
By its nature, granite is moisture-resistant, however it’s also porous. Sealants block liquids from seeping into the granite counters. A properly sealed counter top will cause liquids to bead on the surface. This is what you’re hoping for when sealant is originally applied. However, sealant does not last forever, and with the everyday use of cleaners it can break down faster than you would think. Keep in mind this is when the job was done correctly. What if they didn’t know what they were doing? You might not have moisture protection at all. Eco Clean Carpet and Tile Care would be happy to give a free estimate and evaluation of your tile and stone.
This is surprisingly very affordable and is a favorite service for our customers. Your kitchen and bathroom won’t have hardly any down time at all. They will be ready to handle whatever you dish out, while keeping the original beautiful look of the stone for years to come.
