Granite Sealing Sacramento
SacSurfacePro can make your home’s surfaces a true reflection of you!
Most people agree that granite countertops are an elegant, modern fixture in any home. What many homeowners don’t know is that if granite is not properly sealed and protected, it can quickly become permanently stained and damaged, leading to thousands of dollars in replacement costs! Granite is naturally porous, so it is vulnerable to oil, food stains from berries, mustard, wine, tomatoes, and other common foods and drinks. Oil is the #1 enemy of granite so be cautious when using these around granite. Hard water is another common issue with granite, especially around the sink areas. Don’t worry; we have been removing hard water from granite for years!

There are not many companies in the Sacramento area who specialize in Granite Sealing. SacSurfacePro has years of experience and a wealth of knowledge about Granite Cleaning and Sealing Sacramento. We are the local experts for cleaning, sealing, and re-polishing your granite countertops. We at SacSurfacePro encounter many customers who are unaware that their newly installed granite needs to be sealed. Most granite fabricators and stone experts recommend that granite be sealed one to two times per year. If you have purchased new granite or haven’t sealed your granite in a while, please take just a quick moment to answer the following questions. Your answers will help you determine if your granite surfaces may be at risk:
- Did you know that many builders and installers don’t seal your new granite?
- Has it been more than a year since you resealed your granite?
- Does your granite look hazy or oily?
- Does your granite surface have glass rings or marks on it?
- Are you frustrated because your granite is dull and has lost its original beauty and shine?

What makes SacSurfacePro sealers special?
Our competitors typically need to reseal granite at least once or twice a year. They seal by temporarily “filling” the pores in the granite. Our exclusive granite sealing product chemically bonds to the porous granite surface allowing us to provide a minimum 5-year warranty. This sealer is much different because it creates a hybrid effect of both penetration and topical sealing. A penetrating seal protects from staining such as oil, grease, and staining agents like strawberries, cherries, red wine, etc. A topical seal makes the surface shiny, smooth to the touch, and prevents the formation of hard water stains. With SacSurfacePro’s protective sealer, you get the best of both worlds. Your granite will be protected from spills and staining and have a shiny, smooth glow for years to come if properly maintained.
How do I protect my granite on a daily basis?
Sealing granite doesn’t make it bulletproof, but does protect it from stains that ruin its look and shine. Keeping your granite sparkling usually requires a quick, daily swabbing with a damp cloth for food and drink spills. To avoid hard water stains, many of our customers keep a soft, dry cloth handy and swab around the faucets after dishwashing, handwashing or food preparation. Some of the most stubborn water stains we see are right around the sinks in granite-surfaced kitchens.
Daily Care Tips for Granite in the Kitchen: Use coasters under drinks, especially those containing alcohol or citrus juice. Never place hot items from the range or oven directly on a granite countertop. We all know that sometimes, even with the best of care, accidents happen. Nobody’s perfect! Wipe up spills as soon as you see them. Using the wrong products to clean granite destroys its sheen and smoothness. Most off-the-shelf cleaners contain acids or alkaline. The commonly used Windex will cause pitting and dulling of granite surfaces. Acidic products such as vinegar, which is often recommended by do-it-yourself sites, will quickly destroy the seal. Other cleaners like Clorox wipes will remove a sealer. Take time to research the cleaners you are using! We recommend using denatured or rubbing alcohol mixed with equal parts water to maintain the protective power of our seal. We also highly recommend the occasional use (once or twice a month) of a commercial grade granite polish.
Note: The use of alcohol may be too aggressive for most penetrating sealers. Because of the unique bonding power of SacSurfacePro’s sealer, alcohol will not harm the seal at all. However, over spraying alcohol products may damage the finish on cabinets or painted walls, so use these products sparingly. With the proper selection, careful protection, and professional sealing from SacSurfacePro, your granite surfaces will glow and reflect you beautifully for many years to come!
