Granite worktops are very popular among homeowners. This could be because it has a beautiful natural surface that has an almost luminous look. It could also be because a granite worktop in a kitchen adds value to your home. Granite is an ideal material for your kitchen surfaces because it is sanitary.

How To Look After Granite Worktops

We wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t tell you about the maintenance that is required. Your granite worktops will be professionally sealed to protect them for a long time if you look after them properly. It is really important to clear up any spills because water and oil can find their way into the stone if left on the surface for long periods of time. Making sure you keep your worktops clean is also crucial – check out our blog on how to clean granite worktops to see how simple it is.

Do Granite Worktops Stain Easily?

There are few materials that are completely stain-resistant, but granite is about as stain-resistant as you can get when it comes to surfaces for kitchens and bathroom worktops. This natural stone’s basic qualities give it a hardness that makes it incredibly resistant to staining. It has minimal pores which make the stone almost impervious to stains. Lighter-coloured granite worktops are just as safe as the darker options, especially in busy kitchens where too much detail could become overpowering.

The main thing to remember is that the seal on the surface of the granite can become less resistant to moisture over time. It is important to buff your worktops regularly and have a professional company seal the countertops periodically too. Every two or three years is fine.
