As you take a look around your home, do you notice that it’s starting to show signs of age? Replacing your countertops in the kitchen or bathroom is a relatively easy way to update your home’s look. There are a number of different choices when it comes to countertop materials, including natural stone options such as granite, marble, and travertine. When you choose your countertop material, do your research to find out if you need stone sealing to keep your investment up to par. Natural stones are porous, and without sealing, are prone to staining and bacterial growth below the surface. Even tile countertops should be sealed so that the grout stays clean and sanitary.
