Granite Marble Counter Top Sealing Restoration Service Oahu

Time Tested Granite Counter Top Sealing and Marble Counter Top Sealing Services on Oahu

Q. What is the purpose of sealing granite counter tops?
A. Sealing granite counter tops helps the granite resist build up of dirt and protection against spills. Even though granite is naturally moisture resistant, it is still porous and spills will be absorbed into the stone. Sealants are important because they prevent liquids from being absorbed into the granite. When granite is properly sealed it will ensure liquids will only bead up on the surface.
Q. Does it matter which kind of granite sealer that I use?
A. Yes it does. Technology has changed over the years and it is essential your granite sealer includes an advanced fluoropolymer because that will help provide advanced protection again water and oil based stains. Secondly, use a sealer that includes nano-technology which will allow the sealer to impregnate the stone and provide lasting protection. Finally, it is essential that your granite sealer contains hybrid carrier technology that penetrates deep into the stone providing a no-sheen barrier that is resistant to water and oil and provides superior stain protection. Renue Systems' sealer has all these characteristics, is V.O.C compliant, and is a winner of The Best of Sustainability Award.
Q. How do you know when you need to seal your granite counter top?
A. Put water on your granite counter top and come back in 30 minutes. If the water is still there, your sealing is still active and your stone is protected. If the water absorbed into the stone it is time to have your granite counter top re-sealed. As a good rule of thumb, check your granite counter top every 6 months and in general seal it annually (this does vary based on the stone).

Q. How do you know when you need to restore your marble counter top?
A. Dull marble is damaged marble. Marble is very porous and when there is etching in the marble it is time for diamond honing restoration. Renue Systems diamond hones the marble removing the damage.
Q. Is marble restoration really necessary or can I just polish my marble?
A. Marble restoration not only helps to repair damaged marble, but it also helps to prevent permanent damage. Marble is very porous and the longer spills are on the stone the deeper they will penetrate into the stone. For example, a coffee spill on stone caught quickly can be restored out of the stone fairly easily, but if the coffee spill is left on there for a very long period of time it can become permanent because it has soaked all the way through the stone.

Q. Is crystallization of my marble a good method to get a shine on my marble?
A. There is no doubt crystallization can get a good shine, but there are draw backs. If not properly maintained crystallization can in fact cause permanent damage to the marble. The way marble crystalization works is it places an impermeable coating of fluorosilicates on the stone, completely blocking the marble pores. When the pores are blocked, condensation will be trapped and the marble will begin to break down. crystalization done properly needs to have a plan to strip it off to allow the marble to breath otherwise cracks and permanent damage can form.
