How do you reseal your countertops? We’re here for a refresher. Any natural stone we install is sealed upon installation, however we recommend resealing once or twice a year to make sure it stays looking like new. Now, how do you go about sealing it? That is an easy process. First, clear off the countertops. Avoid any potentially damaging substances such as bleach or harsh commercial cleansers. We recommend Stonetech bulletproof sealer, easily available on Amazon. We recommend that if your sealer does not come packaged in a spray bottle to transfer it to one. From there, spray down the countertops and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes are up, wipe down any excess residue that was leftover.
Don’t trust it? Test that your sealer is working. The following day, in a corner or somewhere not too seen, pour a bit of water on the surface. If the water pools or bubbles on the surface, the countertops are sealed. If the water seeps in and begins darkening the stone, they are not fully sealed.
