Care and upkeep of new granite vanity top
granite vanity top
Just had this granite vanity top installed. Purchased at Home Depot. brand: Pegasus, color: Napoli.
Website claimed this fact: Granite counter top is factory polished to a smooth gloss finish and is sealed for added extra protection.
What do you suppose they mean by "sealed"? What sorts of dangers must I be aware of with a bathroom granite vanity top? How do I know if it will ever need another sealant?
"Sealing" is the process of applying a special chemical to the granite to dramatically slow down the rate of absorption of liquids, which will help prevent stains and minimize granite counter top maintenance. Many granites
do not need sealing because they are naturally non-absorbent.
But all you need to do to determine if and/or when your granite needs sealing or re-sealing is to perform the water test
.When it needs sealing again
, we recommend recommended marble & granite sealersAs far as "dangers"
there aren't many granite maintenance issues if any that you really need to worry about in a bathroom. Granite is the best most durable and low maintenance surface you could install.
