Answers to Common Questions about Granite Countertop Care

Home Improvement

When people are looking into upgrading their bathroom counters, many of them consider installing granite, but are unsure about caring for it properly. This article will answer many common questions about caring for Dunwoody granite bathroom countertops. If you have any questions that aren't answered in this article, contact a company that installs granite countertops in your area; most of them will be happy to answer any remaining questions you have.

Sealing Your Counters

One of the first things many people want to know is whether or not it is necessary to seal your granite counters. The general recommendation is that you seal all natural stone that you use for surfaces in your home. However, it is not completely necessary to do so if you don't wish to. The purpose of sealing your granite is to make it so that stains are less likely to set into the porous surface of the stone. But if you are vigilant and set the habit of immediately wiping up any spills on your counters, you generally don't have to worry about this.

Additionally, spills from dark liquids are much less likely in a bathroom than they are in the kitchen. So if you don't want to pay to have your granite bathroom counters sealed, then you should be just fine to do without, and you shouldn't have to worry too much about your counters suffering because of it.

Cleaning Your Counters

Granite countertops are generally very easy to clean, but you should be particular about the kinds of cleaners you use on these surfaces. Harsh cleaning chemicals, like bleach, can damage granite if you use it on the surface too frequently. You should also avoid using very abrasive cleaning tools, like scrub brushes, steel wool, or sponges that have an abrasive backing. Though granite is durable, it can get superficial scratches fairly easily, which will mar the beautiful look of the counters. You should also avoid using dish soap to clean granite; this can often leave a residue that diminishes the granite's shining surface.

Instead, clean your counters with a natural stone cleaner and a soft cloth. This will help to protect the sealant (if you chose to have the counters sealed) and keep the stone looking its absolute best.

Protecting Your Counters

You should also take precautions to prevent any damage to your counters. Here are a few things to avoid doing:

  • Don't sit or stand on your granite counters. Yes, they are very strong, but they're also very rigid. Too much weight in one spot can cause the granite to crack.
  • Don't store toiletries on the counter. Things like perfumes, hairsprays, and other toiletry products have a tendency to leak or spill without people paying much mind to it. Letting these liquids sit on your granite can stain or etch the surface. Store your products on a shelf, in a drawer, or in a fancy countertop tray.
  • Try to avoid sliding things across the surface. If there is dirt or debris between the item and the counter's surface, this can lead to those surface scratches that were mentioned above.

If you have more questions, contact a company that installs Dunwoody granite bathroom countertops.
