Granites differ in their texture but they all have similar properties such as their resistance to the invasive action of most substances found in the house. Unlike marble and limestone, granite is the least affected by acids or alcohol.
All stones, due to their granular construction, are porous to a greater or lesser extent and most granites fall into the latter category. To reduce the slight ability of granite to absorb liquids we treat the surface
Marble and Limestone are susceptible to the aggressive action of acids and alcohol. Care should be taken to remove spillages of fruit juice, particularly lemon, wine and vinegar, beetroot etc.
Despite its reputation for toughness, stone can be stained, scratched and chipped. That’s the bad news. The good news is that most of the time damaged stone floors and countertops can be made to look like new again.
Scratches & Chips are best repaired in place by a professional refinisher with the proper tools and skills. First, the refinisher will fill any chips and deep gouges with special polyester or epoxy, tinted on site
The best way to improve stone’s stain resistance is to apply a penetrating sealer, also know as an impregnator. Unlike waxes or other coatings, these sealers go below the surfaces and protect the stone from within.
