Granite countertops need to be sealed about every six months. Do not clean with anything but warm soapy water. If you use Clorox wipes you will take the sealer off. Luckily there is a whole industry geared toward sealing and getting stains out of granite countertops. Sealing is as easy as spraying and wiping it off with a dry cloth.
Many granite slabs are now available with a layer of resin to further protect the countertops and prevent the need of sealing every 6 months. It is important to note that at times, the edges of a resin coated granite countertop will appear lighter, and may require a color enhancement treatment which we can provide upon request.
