Granite has a rich beauty that few other countertop materials can match. Granite is a natural product with a timeless aura and appeal. Granite countertops take a high-quality kitchen to the next level visually and often become the centerpiece of the room.
For all their beauty and durability, granite counters must be cared for properly. The most concerning problems can occur when the countertops are not sealed correctly or the sealant wears off without the counters being resealed. Granite is porous. This means that unsealed or poorly sealed counters can absorb wine, juice or oil, producing a stain that might be impossible to remove. A poorly-sealed countertop can also harbor bacteria in its pores.
Some treated granite can go 10 years without being sealed, but many countertops will need to be resealed on a yearly basis. When this is overlooked, it won’t take long for granite countertops to begin to show signs of staining.
While these counters are very durable, a heavy object dropped on a corner might crack or chip the granite. This isn’t common, but it can happen under the right circumstances.
Granite comes in beautiful hues of oranges, browns, yellows, blues and reds. Some granite counter tops and floors are exquisitely unique with splashes of vibrant colors seldom seen in other stones.
Blue Moon understands the unique nature of Granite and how to professionally care for this natural stone. We realize that even though Granite is of the toughest and strongest of natural stones, Granite is quite porous and is not damage proof. Like other natural stones it can etch and it can also lose its luster if not properly cared for.
At Blue moon;, we use neutral cleaners that will not etch or dull surfaces. Our cleaning process has been proven to be effective. We also provide consulting to our customers so that their Granite floors and counter tops can be beautifully maintained in between professional cleaning.
Sealing Granite is critical to the "health" of this natural stone. Due to the porosity of Granite, spilled wine or acid based beverages can be adsorbed and create permanent staining. Blue Moon uses impregnating sealants that provide an invisible barrier that protects Granite stone.
Only we can bring back that Blue Moon shine. The brilliance of beautifully polished Granite stone is simply awesome! Blue Moon polishes Granite to a nice shine that you will adore. We give you the flexibility to determine how much of a shine you would like your Granite to have. Our demonstrations help our customers choose what's best.
