When it comes to preserving the beauty and longevity of natural stones like granite and marble, using a sealer is often a step overlooked, but it is crucial. Natural stones are porous materials, meaning they can absorb liquids and stains quite easily, leading to discoloration or damage over time. This is where the importance of using a sealer comes into play.
Sealers act as a protective layer on the surface of the stone, filling in microscopic pores to block the penetration of liquids. This not only helps in preventing stains but also aids in easier cleaning and maintenance.
Granite fabricators frequently recommend applying a sealer after installation to ensure that your natural stone surfaces retain their original luster. At Granite Depot of Columbia, our granite fabricators take it a step further by offering professional sealing services as part of their after-care packages. These experts understand the specific type of sealer suitable for different stones and can apply it correctly for maximum effectiveness.
Skipping on a sealer might save you time and money initially, but the long-term costs of repair and replacement could be significantly higher. And it’s not just about aesthetics; sealers also offer some degree of protection against bacterial growth, making your home a safer place.
So, when investing in natural stones for your home, consult granite fabricators for the right sealing solutions to ensure beauty and durability for years to come. At Granite Depot of Columbia, we emphasize the importance of sealing as a vital part of your stone-care regimen.
