Granite Kitchen Countertops in Mississauga

Granite first came to prominence as a kitchen countertop material in the 1980s. Prior to that, granite and marble were available only to the very wealthy. The development of new technologies cut down the amount of time needed to extract stone from quarries and to process it, and this helped to make it more affordable. Now granite is the number one choice for kitchen countertops in Mississauga, and throughout the GTA.
There are many reasons why granite is popular. These include:
  • Beauty
  • Durability
  • Affordability
  • Ease of care
  • Health
Primary among these is beauty. Natural stone has a depth and shine that can't be equaled. Granite is available in many different colours and patterns, depending on which minerals are present in its makeup. Durability is another important factor; granite is heat resistant, scratch resistant, and stain resistant. When properly cared for, your granite kitchen countertop will last beyond the life of your home.

Caring for Your Granite

Looking after your granite countertop is simple. Granite is very tough and durable, but it can be stained by spills if they're not cleaned up in a timely fashion. Acidic foods or liquids such as lemon juice, ketchup or red wine can be particularly bad for the finish. However, if spills are wiped up with a damp cloth quickly, there's rarely any problem.
You can use a damp cloth to clean your granite countertop, or you can use a small amount of mild pH-balanced eco-friendly soap. For stains, you can make a simple paste from water and baking soda. Never use abrasive cleansers or any cleaning fluids that contain ammonia or bleach. These can etch the stone and seep into your countertop.
Approximately once a year, you need to reseal your countertop using a quality sealant. There are a couple of ways to tell if it's time to reseal. If water splashed onto the surface doesn't form into beads, it indicates that the seal is not effective. Another way to test is to dampen a paper towel, then leave it for five minutes on the countertop. If the area underneath the paper towel is dark, it's time to reseal.
Resealing is not a complex process, and has been compared to waxing a car. First, clean the countertop and wipe it dry. Then let it air dry for several minutes. Using a spray bottle or a clean cloth, apply sealer evenly to the surface. Let it sink into the stone for 20 – 25 minutes, then apply more sealant onto a cloth and rub it in. Let it stand for approximately two hours, then apply a second coat.
