Natural Stone Sealer

4 Reasons to Seal Your Natural Stone

Do you have natural stone kitchen counters in your home that you have recently installed? Are you searching for ways to keep them stain-free? Sealing your natural stone countertop is an excellent way to protect it from stains, improve its appearance, and protect it from other damage. There are several reasons to seal your natural stone countertops, such as granite and marble, to avert everyday wear and tear.

Sealers Offer Protection

When selecting a sealer for your natural stone countertop, choose an impregnating stone sealer. This type of sealer will penetrate much deeper into the actual surface of the natural stone than a surface sealer. High-quality sealers will safeguard your stone for a timeframe of 10-15 years, making them ideal for countertops. However, you will also find products that are less expensive upfront but that would typically last only for 3 to 5 years at max. It is always wise to go for proven products that can offer better protection to your expensive natural stone countertops.

Sealers Establish Stain Resistance

A good sealer will make your natural stone impervious to both oil- and water-related damages. This type of sealant will also properly protect against many types of daily dirt and spills. This will provide you with additional protection for your natural stone countertop investment, which is generally a costly choice.

Sealers Make Maintenance Easy

Sealed countertops are much easier to clean and maintain. Spills can be easily removed with a soft wet cloth or paper towel. Rather than buying costly and toxic chemicals, you’ll be able to maintain your countertops looking brand new by using natural household ingredients. Although cleaning is simplified, you should still exercise caution when dealing with your countertops. It is always wise to use coasters under the glasses of beverages and instantly clean any spills to avoid long-term damage that might potentially pierce the stone.

Sealers Protect Natural Stone from Harmful Bacteria

Since natural stones are porous materials, they are vulnerable to dirt, dust, microbes, bacteria, and other potentially harmful particles. These particles can not only damage your natural stone countertops over time, but they can also pose health risks to your family. Using a sealer will seal the pores in your stone, preventing the accumulation of particles and harmful bacteria. This will make your house easier to clean and less risky for those who come into contact with the stone countertops.
