Countertops Sealed Properly

Q. We moved into a home with granite countertops that we really like but we are not sure if the previous owners have ever sealed them properly. What maintenance is required for granite and is there something that we can use to restore the shine.

A. While granite is one of the most durable stones available, you should re-seal your granite countertops every two years to avoid any staining and preserve the natural look. For maintenance and cleaning, always use a product specifically designed for natural stone, not over-the-counter cleaning products.
