Is granite high maintenance?
Granite is a very low maintenance stone. To clean, it requires just mild soap and warm water.
Can knives scratch granite?
Knives cannot scratch true granite. The only thing harder than granite is diamond. For example, diamond is scored 10 on the MOH’s hardness scale and granite is scored 7. Diamond blades are the only thing that can cleanly cut through granite. Other natural stones like Gneiss and Schist are commonly called granite, but they do not have a MOH score of 7, and they can be probably scratched by knives.
Does heat damage granite?
No, granite can withstand very high temperatures. Placing hot pans or a hot kettle will not cause any damage to the granite’s color or stability. However, it is recommended that you use trivets because of other reasons.
Does granite need to be sealed regularly?
If you use high quality impregnating sealers, you should have to reseal your granite every three years.
Can granite be repaired?
At Sol Granite and Natural Stone, we have been asked if granite can be repaired, if chips or cracks that occur from accidental impacts can be fixed? The answer is yes, they can be repaired by a granite fabricator.
