Natural stone can be a beautiful addition to your home, whether it’s in the form of granite countertops, travertine tile floors, or a natural stone patio. Though natural stone is one of the best looking choices for surfaces, it can also come with a certain level of maintenance. If your stone surfaces are not sealed, they could stain easily and have a shortened lifespan. Granite cleaning is the first step in the professional sealing process, as all of the dirt inside the pores of the surface is emulsified. The surface is sterilized with steam, at which point the impregnating seal is applied.
