Though granite countertops can withstand tons of abuse, its surface can get chipped if steaming hot pots and pans are placed directly onto the granite. This is because the hard granite stones comprises some soft, thin strips of granite, which cannot absorb all the heat applied to its surface. Thus, one must be careful to place hot dishes on trivets and hot pads.
Harsh cleaning agents such as bleach, kitchen degreasers and glass cleaners can strip the granite surface off the sealer, and can permanently stain the surface. This is because these common household cleaning agents contain acids, alkalies and other chemicals, which can harm the granite. One must be careful to only use mild soap and water to clean it. Even frequent use of soap can make the granite surface dull.
Installing a granite slab is a very laborious and tedious task, due to which, the installation can cost almost three times the amount spent on the slab. Granite also requires an additional supporting structure during the installation as it is very heavy. However, once a granite countertop is installed, it becomes a permanent structure. Removing it later can even harm the adjoining structures. Their biggest advantage is that they sport a luminous surface and give a very rich look to the kitchen furniture.
