How to Maintain the Beauty of Granite Countertops?
Granite is easy to maintain, just clean with warm water and mild soap. Regular cleaning will help your granite stay fresh and extend their longevity. We do recommend granite be resealed every few years, as doing so will help keep the countertops not only shiny and polished, but its porous nature to be protected. In outdoor settings, we do recommend you keep a protective cover over your area to protect your granite from UV rays. Be it an awning, an umbrella or a cover, keeping your granite safe from extreme weather conditions will ensure your countertops last.
