When you search online, there are various opinions and suggestions for sealing Granite worktops and Granite floors. The primary reason is that lack of knowledge in regards to the stone and exactly how sealers work.

Most of the darker coloured premium forms of granite like; black, blue, brown or green should not need to be sealed. Still, while Granite is a natural stone, differences in density may appear, therefore we normally strongly recommended checking the porosity of those varieties considered to be particularly dense.

Checking Granite for absorbancy is quite straight forward. Pour a small quantity of water on the granite, let it work for 30 minutes then wipe off. In the event that water gives a dark spot, the granite must be sealed. In the event that puddle has not resulted in a darker spot, then your Granite will not need sealing.

Still, granite floors always need sealing, because tile grout is porous. In the event the Granite is porous, we're going to seal your Granite surfaces with a top-quality Granite Sealer. The Sealer makes its way into the Granite, making a sturdy protective layer.
