Having granite countertops in your home can add an elegant and sophisticating appeal. Many advantages come along with having granite countertops, so it’s important to take proper care of them. Overtime, they may become dull and faded due to residue from certain substances. With proper care and maintenance, fixing dull granite countertops is a simple process that can be done in a short period of time. If your granite countertops are suffering from a more intense flatness, consider calling a professional to ensure your countertops look their best.
Fix Dull Granite Countertops
Granite countertops tend to become dull near the stove and sink due to grease, oil, and soap scum. Sometimes a mild household detergent may not be enough to completely remove the buildup. We recommend applying a solvent, such as acetone, with a soft cloth to any dull areas. Acetone is particularly effective in dissipating heavy grease stains. After scrubbing the granite with acetone, wipe down your countertop thoroughly with warm water. Additionally, consider resealing your granite countertop to help repair and prevent fading. First, thoroughly clean the surface before applying the sealer. Carefully apply the sealer with a rag or spray bottle. Be sure to go slow to ensure that you cover the granite in an even coat. Once the sealer has dried entirely, apply as many as three additional layers to provide the most effective protection.
