Granite Care in NYC
Granite is very sturdy stone and due to its durability, it is ideal for use in countertops in kitchens and bathrooms and widely used in homes and businesses.
It is resistant to most chemicals, except oil, because it can penetrate into the stone and stain the surface. It is also resistant to heat and scratches and to most acids, such as soft drinks and juices.
Granite adds a touch of elegance to any environment, but the elegance can be diminished over time or when stains and damages have occurred.
Regular granite care includes proper cleaning and use of sealant to prevent stains.
We recommend that your granite countertops are professionally cleaned and sealed every one or two years, as well as the granite floors. Or if you see any scratches, blemishes or any other damage on your granite.
If your granite is opaque, stained or damaged, it is time for a professional treatment and restoration.
The granite restoration floors process is done in four steps which are: scraping, repairing cracks, polishing and waterproofing.
- Scraping: This step is done with the aid of a thick sandpaper that removes all the dirt that is trapped in the granite. In this step the floor leveling also is done.
- Crack Repair: In this step a plastic mass that helps to close the part that is damaged is used.
- Polishing: Polishing is used for fine-grained stones that do not scratch the floor, polishing is done until the surface is smooth.
- Waterproofing: To finish this process the floor is sealed so that it is protected against stains and continue with the brightness.
