Do I Really Need to Clean, Polish and Seal Granite?

Why is it so important to protect natural stone?
To preserve the longevity of a natural stone installation it is very important to protect it with a proper sealer and clean with products designed especially for natural stone. All natural stone surfaces are porous. As long as there is an absorption factor, stone will stain and deteriorate over time. When your stone is properly sealed, the absorbion factor is eliminated.
Do I need to seal all my granite surfaces?
Yes! If you want to protect your investment and prolong the life of the material. Although we normally think of these surfaces as “hard as rock” but this can be misleading. They all have varying degrees of porosity and if left unsealed can easily be stained by everyday spills (juices, coffee, wine, oil…etc.). Acidic substances can even etch these surfaces and potentially ruin an expensive material. Although sealing does not make the material bullet-proof, it will reduce the chance of permanent staining, etching and/or discoloration.
