Even incredibly durable and long-lasting granite counters can become damaged over time. You may notice tiny scratches, cloudy stone, or even large marks marring the once-flawless surface. Any damage may look drastic, but most are easy to fix. Almost any granite counters can be polished to its former glory.
Most polishes should be applied directly to the granite surface. Use a cloth or sponge to rub the compound into the damaged area. You will need to work the polish in, like sanding down wood, until the granite is perfectly smooth. Be sure to wipe the polish off to prevent any further abrasion.
You can polish your granite by hand or using a power polisher instead. Be careful if you haven’t had practice though; pressing down hard could take off a large portion of your countertop!
Make sure you’ve cleaned the compound off completely before you apply the sealer and follow all package instructions. Give the sealer plenty of time to dry before using your freshly-polished countertop.
