How To Protect Granite Countertops

You may have questions regarding the proper Care and Protection of Granite Countertops, and sadly, there is a lot of misinformation out there on the internet.
This page will help to answer your questions and provide practical help to eliminate your concerns.There are a few things to keep in mind regarding your Granite Countertops:

GRANITE IS A QUARTZ BASED STONE AND IS ACID RESISTANT

       Granite is not Acid Sensitive but does need to be sealed
      
 Because of this, you need not worry about lemon juice,
       tomato juice and other common household items.
       They will not harm or etch Granite. (you should wipe up spills quickly)

       This is NOT the case for Marble or Travertine,
       these are calcium based stone and are acid sensitive.

ALMOST ALL GRANITE IS RESIN IMPREGNATED IN THE FACTORY

granite slabs are resin sealed in the factory          
Decorative Granite slabs are Resined in the Factory. This gives you some protection, but most granite  remains porous!

GRANITE DOES NEED TO BE SEALED
       Even though most Granite is resin impregnated in the factory,
       the process of grinding and polishing open pores. 

       This grinding and polishing requires that nealy all types of granite
        need to be sealed. See here for more information about Resined Slabs.
