Perhaps, more than anything else, granite is loved for its durability. The practical characteristics make this a first class choice for any kitchen. It’s always worth remembering that countertops come under serious pressure, at times. They deal with moisture, heat, acidic substances, sharp objects, and so much more. Fortunately for you, granite is more than capable of dealing with these difficulties. It’s scratch and dent resistant, and further sealants can add some bolstered protection for the installation, if you want to be extra careful.
As you’re undoubtedly aware, kitchens are where we prepare and cook food for ourselves and our families. This is notable in the sense that hygiene is a big deal in the kitchen. The spread of bacteria can cause illness, which is obviously the last thing you want. Given all the warmth and moisture in a kitchen, it’s clear that this is an environment where bacteria can thrive. Luckily, a granite countertop can limit the likelihood of this happening. The non-porous surface makes it hard for bacteria to settle in hidden nooks, and facilitates and easy cleaning process.
Granite countertops are hardy and tough, but there are specific situations where they might become damaged after a particularly heavy blow. You’d be forgiven for thinking that this would cause you a major issue, but granite repair is not only possible for a professional, but generally quite straightforward. That means you don’t need to worry about replacing the countertop after a small mishap.
