Repair Granite Countertops

Updated:2014-05-05 09:56:08
Granite countertops are naturally porous and are prone to damage if not properly maintained. Granite countertops with a high percentage of quartz will be more durable than those with less quartz and are less resistant to damage than others.

Assess the type of damage that has occurred to the granite before attempting to repair the countertop. Typical damage to granite includes stains, scratches and chips. Repairing a granite countertop may be difficult depending on the type and extent of the damage.

Instructions as follows:

                                                               

Firstly, stains should be soaked in water immediately upon notice to help wash the material out of the granite. Using a sponge soaked in warm water, vigorously rub the stained area of the granite countertop. Do not use steel wool or any other abrasive object. If the stain persists, leave the warm water-soaked sponge on the stained area for several hours.
Secondly, make a solution of 75% hydrogen peroxide and 25% water and test it on a small area of the granite countertop that will not be noticed to see if discoloration occurs.
Thirdly, apply the solution to the stained area with the sponge and rub out the stain if no discoloration appeared in Step 2. This method is only recommended on light-colored granites. According to the Marble Institute, beauty parlor grade hydrogen peroxide will work best mixed with a few drops of ammonia.
