Your new granite top will arrive sealed. First the slabs arrive from the warehouse sealed. The installers typically add another coat of sealer after they complete the install. However, when the water no longer beads up, similar to a newly waxed car, or if water left on the top absorbs and leaves a dark ring, it is time to seal it again. After the water stain has dried out, simply wipe the sealer on with a clean cloth and allow it to dry overnight. Clean up every day spills with a damp cloth and mild soap, especially oil or an acid like lemon juice. Do not use harsh chemicals. A bottle of granite sealer is sold at most hardware stores for about $15.
Can I cut on my granite?
Yes you can , but please don't. Repeated cuts on the stone can dull your knives. Also, a decorative edge, such as Dupont, can be chipped out accidentally by a knife. Using a cutting board is good for sanitary purposes as well, since granite is porous.
Can I out something hot on my countertop?
Yes! That is the best feature of a new granite countertop. It is stone, and came from a quarry. It can handle the heat from a pan or stock pot.
