Separating Fact from Fiction: Should You Seal Your Granite?

Posted by & filed under Granite Countertops, Tips.

So you just bought a new granite bathroom vanity for your Eden Prairie home. And now you’re wondering if you should look into having it resealed on a regular basis. There is a lot of contradictory information floating around out there. And if you ask fellow granite owners if they have their granite counters sealed on a regular basis, some might say yes and others might say no. So what’s the final answer?

The short answer is: It depends. Most manufacturers will seal granite before it is made into a granite bathroom vanity or granite kitchen countertops. Some granite out there is more porous than others, but for the most part, you should not have to have your granite bathroom vanity resealed on a regular basis.

However, there are a few indications that your granite bathroom vanity needs to be resealed. One of the best signs is if water no longer beads up on the surface. Or if you set down a glass that has condensation on the outside and, when you pick it up, you notice it leaves a water ring. Both of these are the two biggest signals that you should have the granite resealed.

Basic maintenance and cleaning can help ward off the need to reseal. So when you spill something on your granite bathroom vanity, make sure you wipe it up right away. Taking the time to wipe up any messes could help to save you time, money and hassle in the long run! And don’t worry if you set a hot curling iron on your granite bathroom vanity. Granite is heat-resistant.
