Now You May Wonder…
How Can I Tell If I Need Granite Sealing in Irvine CA?
You may have heard that granite doesn’t actually need sealing because it is a naturally dense and stain-resistant stone. But remember, there is a huge variety of granite out there and many varieties do need the additional protection provided by granite sealing in Irvine CA. You will definitely want to get your granite sealed when it is first installed. Then, depending on how much you use the stone, it will need to be resealed every few years.
Fortunately, there is a simple way to tell if your granite needs to be sealed or resealed. Just leave a small puddle of water on the stone for 15 minutes. When you wipe up the water, the stone underneath should appear unchanged. If it is discolored, this means moisture can penetrate and your stone needs sealing.
Because each individual stone will take sealant a bit differently, you may get just 1 year of protection or 5 or more from each application of sealant. We recommend using this test to identify resealing needs to make sure you seal no more or less often than is needed.
What If My Granite Was Pre-Sealed?
Some types of granite have been “pre-sealed” at the factory with a resin-impregnation process. However, this does not necessarily mean your granite is protected from stains. Why? Because pre-sealed granite is treated before it is polished. Polishing opens up the pores in the stone and leaves it vulnerable to absorbing liquids, which can create stains or etch marks.
Fortunately, there’s no need for you to make the “seal or not to seal” decision on your own. You can rely on Fuller Stone Care for an expert assessment of your stone and reliable advice on granite sealing in Irvine CA.
