Atlanta Countertops Specialists, Craftmark, Share How to Polish Granite

Polishing granite is a simple matter of using the right materials correctly, explains Craftmark Solid Surfaces.

    NORCROSS, GA, August 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When your Atlanta granite countertops were first installed, they had a beautiful shine. If you haven't maintained them well, though, your countertops may have lost their beautiful luster, but Craftmark Solid Surfaces knows that with time and care you can polish your granite to look like new.

Atlanta countertops are often subjected to a lot of wear and tear. From busy lives to clumsy children, over time they can start to look rough. To return countertops to the polished and beautiful appearance, you must clean them. Purchase a specialized granite cleaner, and follow the instructions to clean your countertops. After cleaning, be sure to let the counters dry completely, preferably overnight.

Once your Atlanta counter tops are dry, polish them with a high quality granite polish. Often these can be sprayed onto the surface, but some require other application methods. Work in small areas when applying the polish, and then buff it into the stone with a clean white cloth. This may take some time, but your patience will be rewarded!

If you should come across smearing while you are polishing your Atlanta granite, stop buffing for a few minutes. If the smearing continues once you return, use more polish in that area.

These steps will polish most dull granite countertops, but if this is not enough to polish your Atlanta countertop, you need to contact a professional, like those at Craftmark Solid Surfaces. Using a motorized buffer may cause permanent damage to your stone if you do it yourself, so you will need an expert to come and buff your stone for you.
