Flamed or thermo granite is a particular type of granite finish that requires different care than polished granite. While flamed and thermo granites are hard materials, the finishes are porous and need to be properly sealed. There are several different types of sealers available, but the most popular types are penetrating or topical sealers.
The important thing to remember when sealing flamed or thermo granite is to use a sealer that allows to the stone to breathe naturally. Topical coatings can seal the stone so it cannot “breath,” which ultimately results in problems with the stone.
Elite Stone & Tile Care uses the proper sealers for flamed and thermo granite. Contact us online or call 407.567.7660 today for a free estimate on flamed and thermo granite sealing services.
Caring for Your Granite
Granite is different than marble when it comes to its recommended usage, care, and maintenance. The first thing you need to know is that granite is a much harder stone than marble, and granite usually does not etch. (However we are now starting to see that some of the granites that are used today can etch from acidic items being spilled on the surface.)
Granite can be cleaned using the same process as marble. We recommend cleaning the surface using a quality stone safe neutral stone cleaner. Visit our Caring For It page to download our Stone and Tile Care Guide and to see recommended products.
