According to The Kitchen, don‘t use abrasive cleaners and sponges, Windex, acidic liquids like vinegar, lemon, lime, or anything with ammonia or bleach. Frequent use of these chemicals will dull and weaken the sealant over time. How much does granite cost? Granite has a wide price range of $45-$400 per square foot per square foot, installed. The great variation is due to variations in the rarity of the stone, its thickness, origin, and any special features. Buyers should ask plenty of questions as to whether price quotes include installation. According to the Family Handyman, an ambitious DIY enthusiast can indeed install a granite countertop. If you have straight countertops with no inside corners, or are just installing an island, it‘s actually quite an easy DIY project.
Sealed granite is not porous so it is impervious to bacteria and germs, making it a very sanitary surface because it won't serve as a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. It also resists stains and liquids. Go ahead and plop down that hot pot. Granite countertops can take the heat and will not scorch. The stone is formed through pressure and heat, so it is naturally able to hand hot items. Granite countertops don’t need a lot of maintenance, especially with regard to cleaning. Periodic sealing is required, particularly for light colored granite. Among all the home improvements you can make, granite countertops are one addition that typically improves home resale value. Any kitchen upgrade will likely boost value, but granite is a definite plus on the bottom line at sale time.
Radon also cautions against suggestions that you place a radon-in-air test device on a granite surface under a bowl, bucket, or other container. This will, 99% of the time, grossly over-report the radon levels. Forbes magazine also warns consumers about scare-mongering information that can be found online. Simple soapy water is the best for cleaning your granite countertop. From time to time, you may choose to do a deep cleaning if you have been cooking with large amounts of grease or oil. Use a heavy-duty stone cleaner that will degrease the counter and remove surface sealants.
