Granite is one of the world’s hardest materials and has steadily become the surface of choice for stone countertops throughout SW Florida. Granite is easy to clean, resistant to most acids, and, when sealed correctly, will not stain. But there are times when your granite surfaces need attention.
Over time a heavily used granite counter space can become dulled by the constant abrasion of porcelain dishes, metal hardware, and other implements. When this happens, the surface needs to be polished. Polishing is performed by using specialized tooling, diamond pads, and polishes. Once the surface is returned to a polished finish, it is detailed and sealed using an impregnating sealer. Your newly polished granite will last for years.
Much harder than marble, granite is a rugged and resilient stone that requires specialized knowledge and equipment to restore. This is not a service that a “handyman should perform.”
Tru-Clean Surface Care is one of the leading granite countertop cleaning, repair, and sealing companies in SW Florida. We are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC), StonePro Approved, and a surpHaces PRO Partner. We understand granite and natural stone better than most, and our technicians are certified and experienced in all facets of granite countertop cleaning, repair, and sealing.
Each granite countertop is different in terms of its needs. Some only need a thoroughly exhaustive cleaning and polishing, while others need a restorative honing to help feather or eliminate deep scratches. And then other, require repairs for chips or cracks.

Impregnating / Sealing Granite Surfaces
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your granite will be easier to keep clean with regular professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly effective cleaning solutions. Once your granite is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say “may” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
In addition to our national certifications, Tru-Clean Surface Care is A+ Rated by the Better Business Bureau and an eight-year-in-a-row-winner of the coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award. Our cleaning solutions are allergen-free and safe for pets and children.
