Granite Countertop sealing

Sealing granite countertops is sometimes needed to prevent stains in your granite countertops. When it comes time to seal your granite countertops it is a pretty easy process. The basic steps are as follows;

1. Uniformly apply the sealer to your countertop using a clean white rag or brush.
2. Let the sealer absorb into the stone for approximately 3 to 4 minutes.
3. When the sealer is almost dry, apply a little more sealer on your granite and then rub it in with a dry, clean rag.
4. Repeat on the next section of stone until your entire countertop is sealed.
5. Wait at least two hours and then apply a second application. The wait time depends on your specific brand of sealer.
