First of all, granite can be sealed and we recommend that you re-seal your countertop once a year with a high-quality penetrating sealer. This only takes around 15 minutes and protects your countertops, preserving its natural beauty. If a stain appears on your granite countertop, it can be removed. Granite stain removal, however, is not a DIY kind of thing.  If you do get staining on your granite, please feel free to contact us to have your granite countertop professionally repaired and resealed.
