How to Maintain the Beauty of your Denver Granite Countertops?
Even though granite is one of the most durable countertop materials, it is essential to protect it from extreme external elements. Use coverings such as an awning or umbrella to create shade for your countertops. These coverings prevent your countertops from being too hot in the summer.
Because granite is a natural stone, it is porous and will quickly absorb liquids. Applying a sealer or making sure your countertops are sealed correctly, ensure your surface is not easily absorbent and does not trap moisture.
When cleaning, use a non-absorbent detergent to remove spills or dirt from the countertops. Practicing consistent cleaning on your surfaces extends their longevity and ensure your surfaces remain at their best.
