Granite Sealing Frequently Asked Questions

What is granite?

Granite is an igneous rock that is almost as durable as a diamond because it is formed over billions of years during the cooling phase of magma beneath the earths crust. Granite is composed mainly of quartz and feldspar with minor amounts of mica, amphiboles, and other minerals.

Does natural stone require sealing?

Yes! Because any natural stone is porous. Absorption of fluids such as red wine, for example, can cause discoloring or staining. It is recommended that your granite be sealed immediately after installation. At Brauner's Granite Sealing, we are certified applicators of Granite Shield, a granite sealing product that ensures the life and beauty of your granite and your natural stone for life. Granite Shield is designed to penetrate the stone and clog the pores which creates a virtually impenetrable surface that resists absorbing alcohol, juice, soft drinks, coffee, food, oil, cosmetics and cleaners.

How do I clean my granite countertops?

Cleaning your granite countertops is quite simple. Most importantly, always avoid using powdered cleansers and abrasive pads or acidic products. Instead, use sealers and cleaning products specifically designed for natural stone. Simply, spray a light mist of stone cleanser or even Windex on the area to be cleaned, let it sit for about 30 seconds, wipe with a sponge and dry with a cotton cloth or paper towel.

Clean up spills immediately, including water:

While sealing will prevent most stains from soaking into granite, it is still important to clean up spills quickly. By allowing spill to sit on the granite you are allowing a slight possibility of staining or dulling the granite.


Use the Proper Cleaners:

Use a cleaner, that is designed for granite. These types of cleaners will penetrate the surface and clean the pores of the granite for a thorough clean. These products will also help your granite maintain its shine and natural beauty longer.


Avoid Potentially Harmful Appliances:

Do not use deep fryers, rotisseries or toaster ovens directly on the countertop. High temperatures and hot oil drippings, splatter and spills can damage your granite. Place a mat under appliances to prevent the oils from landing directly on the stone or move the appliances away from granite.

Do you warranty your work?

Absolutely! That is the beauty of Granite Shield. Granite Shield offers a lifetime warranty so that you never have to seal your countertops again!

Why is Granite Shield different from products I can buy from any retailer such as Walmart?

By trusting in Granite Shield and our experts at Brauner's Granite Sealing your granite countertops become maintenance free and you receive a LIFETIME WARRANTY. You will never have to seal your natural stone again. With other granite sealing products you must reseal your granite at least twice a year.

Will sealing my granite countertops make my granite shiny again?

Absolutely! If your countertops have a glossy finish now, once your granite sealing project is complete, your granite will be restored to its original luster like the day it was installed.


Does my stone need to "cure" after it is sealed?

No. Your stone will be ready for use as soon as our experts are finished.
