Granite should be sealed twice a year to keep microorganisms out of the tiny fissures and pits that are natural in any granite slab. It is a very simple, quick and easy process. It takes less than five minutes to apply the sealant with a clean rag, let it dry for half an hour and then wipe away the residue in a couple of minutes. This not only seals the granite but renews the shine. When you're done it looks fabulous. Most consumers seal it approximately four times a year because it looks so good when they’re done.
