Granite Care Do’s and Don’ts

Natural stone is porous. These stones need to be sealed regularly. Regular sealing is the best way to prevent stains, water spots, and things of that nature. The sealer can be used by the homeowner, and the process does not take long at all. If you purchased your countertop at Mastercraft, we will apply the first coat of the sealer. However, it is recommended that you seal them every year.

Routine cleaning of your stone is effortless. Of course, some chemicals can harm the stone. Ammonia is one of the worst enemies of natural stone. You should avoid using it. Ammonia will eat at and dissolves the sealer and the stone. If the sealer is missing, your stone will quickly get staining.
