Granite Sealer Pro Guide to Granite Countertop Sealing

Welcome to Stone Sealer and Restoration, your premier destination for elevating spaces through unparalleled and professional granite sealer.Ensure the enduring beauty of your stunning granite countertop with proper sealing. Everyday use, spills, and inadequate cleaning can take a toll on your granite surface, leaving it susceptible to damage. A penetrating or impregnating sealer, such as the one offered by Stone Sealers and Restoration, works by filling the porous gaps in the granite, providing a protective barrier against potential harm.

While a sealant doesn’t make your granite countertop invincible, it buys you valuable time to address spills and prevent them from causing lasting damage. Even sealed granite can be affected by unattended spills over time. However, with the right product and right services, you can safeguard your investment and keep your granite looking pristine. Trust Stone Sealers and Restoration to provide the ideal solution for sealing your granite sealer countertops and ensuring they remain in top-notch condition.

How to Seal Granite

Granite Sealing Services

Step 1: Check Your Granite Countertop with Water and Oil.

Before making any purchases, it’s essential to determine whether your countertop needs sealing. Here’s a simple test you can do: in a inconspicuous corner of your counter, place a few drops of water and a few drops of oil a few inches away. After 15 minutes, check to see if the water or oil has seeped in and darkened the granite. If it has, it’s time to follow our instructions on how to seal a granite countertop. If not, your countertop is already sealed, and resealing it won’t provide extra protection—it may just leave an unattractive, hazy film.

Step 2: Granite Countertop Cleaning

Granite Cleaning Service

At Stone Sealers and Restoration, we’re dedicated to ensuring your granite countertops receive the best care possible. Here’s how we prepare your countertop for our expert sealing service:

Clearing the Stage

Let’s start by clearing the countertop. Remove all items from the surface and give it a thorough wipe-down with a clean, dry microfiber cloth. This step is crucial to eliminate any surface dust and debris.

Gentle Cleaning Elixir

Our specially crafted cleaning solution is your countertop’s best friend. In a pint spray bottle, mix 1 teaspoon of dishwasher detergent and 2 tablespoons of isopropyl alcohol with cool water. Spray this solution generously on the countertop and let our team wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth, using circular motions for that flawless finish.

A Little Patience

Before our sealing magic begins, we wait. Allow a 24-hour window for the cleaning solution to do its job and fully evaporate. This ensures the ideal conditions for our granite sealant to penetrate effectively.

Step 3: Get ready to protect your granite.

Now that your granite is clean and dry, it’s time to prepare the sealant for application. Our specially formulated sealant from Stone Sealers and Restoration is designed to enhance the longevity and beauty of your granite surfaces.

Here’s how we prepare the sealant:

Shake Well

Before use, give the Stone Sealers and Restoration bottle a good shake to ensure the ingredients are properly mixed. This guarantees an even application and optimal protection for your granite.

Choose The Right Applicator

Depending on the size and type of your granite surface, you may need a specific applicator. Our sealant works well with soft, lint-free cloths or applicator pads. Select the tool that suits your needs and the characteristics of your granite.

Ventilate The Area

Ensure proper ventilation in the room where you’re applying the sealant. This helps in the drying process and prevents the inhalation of fumes. Open windows and doors to create a well-ventilated space.

Protect Surrounding Areas

To avoid accidental spills or splatters, use painter’s tape or plastic sheeting to protect surrounding surfaces, appliances, or fixtures. This precautionary step ensures that the sealant is applied only to the intended granite surfaces.

Step 4: Test the Sealant

Before diving into the full application of our granite sealer sealant, take a moment to test a small section first – it’s like a trial run for your beautiful surfaces.

Here’s how you do it:

Pick A Small Spot

Choose a small, inconspicuous area on your granite surface to test the Stone Sealers and Restoration magic.

Apply The Sealant

Gently apply a bit of our specially crafted sealant to the chosen spot. Don’t worry; it’s just a sneak peek!

Wait 20 Minutes

Give it some time. Let the stone work its charm by absorbing the sealant. Meanwhile, you can catch up on your favorite show or plan your next kitchen adventure.

Inspect The Results

After 20 minutes, check out the tested area. If it looks good and you’re loving the result, you’re all set!

Seal The Deal

With the test giving you the green light, confidently apply the Stone Sealers and Restoration sealant to the rest of your granite surface. It’s time to let the entire space bask in the glory of protection and enhanced beauty.

Step 5: Seal The Granite Countertop

Kitchen Granite Countertops

Spray the granite countertop in small 2-foot sections. You don’t need to use a lot of granite sealer – just a few spritzes should cover a typical kitchen or bathroom counter. You’ll want to apply two or three coats, but you’ll notice that each additional coat covers more area and absorbs less.

Step 6: Wipe the Granite Surface

After you spray the granite, wipe off the granite sealer using a microfiber pad. Don’t leave the sealer on for too long, as it may cause hazing.

Step 7: Buff the Surface

Next, give the surface a nice, glossy finish by buffing it with a clean microfiber towel.

Step 8: Repeat Coats

If needed, repeat the process and apply up to three coats of sealer. Just one coat won’t be sufficient if the granite sealer has been entirely stripped of its previous sealer.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

What Sealer Is Best For Granite?

Choosing the best sealer for granite depends on various factors, including the type of granite and the specific needs of the surface. Generally, penetrating sealers that are solvent-based or water-based are popular choices. It’s advisable to consult with professionals or follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the specific sealer that suits your granite.

Does Granite Need To Be Sealed?

Yes, granite generally needs to be sealed to protect it from stains, moisture absorption, and other potential damage. While granite is a durable natural stone, it is porous, and sealing helps to create a protective barrier that enhances its longevity and preserves its appearance.

Can You Seal Granite Yourself?

Yes, you can seal granite yourself. Many commercially available granite sealers are designed for DIY application. The process typically involves cleaning the surface, applying the sealer evenly, letting it absorb, and then wiping off any excess. Follow the product’s instructions carefully, and it’s a manageable task for most homeowners.

Is Granite Sealer Worth It?

Yes, using a granite sealer is generally worth it. The sealer acts as a preventive measure against stains, spills, and damage, which can be especially important in high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. While sealing adds a bit of maintenance to your routine, the protection it provides helps maintain the beauty and integrity of your granite surfaces over time. It’s a small investment compared to the potential costs of repairing or replacing damaged granite.
