For stones that require yearly maintenance, setting a reminder on your calendar is the perfect way to remind yourself to reseal! If you can clean them, you can seal them; it’s similar to waxing your favorite car. Apply a small amount of sealant to a clean, dry cloth, and wipe it onto your countertops in small circles. Continue for the entirety of stone surfaces in your kitchen. Once you have finished, use another clean, dry cloth to buff the remaining sealant off in small circles. If the countertops appear hazy, you have used too much product. Simply buff off the excess with another cloth and a bit of elbow grease.
If proper care is taken with your new countertop investment, they will give you years of enjoyment and use. When spills occur, clean them up right away. Letting things sit on natural or engineered stone for any length of time may cause issues. If a problem arises, contact Maine Stone Design Center for advice.
