Why Persia Original Granite
One of the first things to contemplate when considering any granite surface is why people choose it. There are many reasons people select natural granite for kitchen countertops. Persia Original Granite has many of the benefits that virtually all natural granite offers. It does however, have some characteristics that make it what it is. And like many other stone surfaces knowing a bit about the composition can be helpful. The following quote was taken from the description of a photo written by a geologist about Persia Original.
Persia Original Granite - a graphic granite with creamy-yellowish potassium feldspar and gray quartz. Granites having a graphic texture (runic texture) consist of potassium feldspar and quartz crystals that interpenetrate in a way that somewhat resembles ancient writing, like Cuneiform or sometimes Arabic. Such rocks are graphic granites (a.k.a. runic granites; runites). Graphic granite is a not-uncommon component of pegmatites.
In addition to those basic comments, many other important facts about Persia Original are helpful to be aware of. We'll consider some additional helpful information about this remarkable natural stone.
What Persia Original Granite Is Made Of
As with most natural granite, Persia Original is a composition of primarily natural quartz and/or feldspar. It can contain other materials, but the main minerals are those in most cases.
The minerals that make up a Persia Original Granite slab give it some qualities that people are drawn to. Some of these qualities translate into practical properties for daily use and care.
Persia Original Properties
One of the big advantages of natural granite over other hard countertop surface materials is that it is very hard. Materials such as Persia Original Granite are scratch resistant because of the hardness of the material. Persia Original is also heat resistant. Unlike some engineered stone, granite can resist heat and does not burn or discolor.
Persia Original natural granite is also very unique. Not just unique from other stone, but it is also distinct from other Persia Original slabs. Choosing your specific slab is encouraged since each stone can vary one from another.
Persia Original Stone Fabrication
Fabricating Persia Original Granite can be easy or it can be a challenge. The difference in difficulty come from the different degrees of knowledge, skill, and equipment that the one doing the work possesses. So, the easiest way to work with Persia Original natural granite is to pay a professional to do the work. The knowledge of the industry and the quality equipment can really make a difference in the results.
One piece of equipment that fabricators use is polishing pads. These abrasive discs are available in various styles, sizes and types. There are wet polishing pads as well as polishing pads that used in dry environments. A polished finish is only one kind of finish that Persia Original can have though. There are others. One example is a leathered, or antiqued finish. Again, achieving this kind of finish depends on using the proper tool; a set of Finishing brushes for granite. The result is a stone that is not as glossy or shiny as a polished finish but has just as distinct of a look.
How to Care for Persia Original
There are some basic care requirements involved with owning a Persia Original kitchen countertop. It is a natural surface and it is very durable. And although it is very durable, keeping it looking its best takes a bit of regular care. This care comes trough a couple of channels. Each of the following plays an important role in caring for your Persia Original Granite surface.
Sealing Persia Original Granite
You may have heard that natural stone needs to be sealed. You also may have heard that you need to check with the fabricator to find out. Both of these statements are true. One of the two main ways that you can care for your Persia Original surface is to periodically reseal the surface using an appropriate stone sealer. There are many kinds and we even offer a stone sealer that is food safe for kitchen countertops (both indoors and outdoors). Keeping up with resealing your Persia Original surface helps protect it from oil and water-based liquids that could get into the pores and stain the surface.
Resealing a granite countertop is not a difficult task and it does not have to be done all that often. It all depends on how much wear and tear the surfaces experiences through household use. About every 6 to 12 months it would be good to do a water test on the Persia Original surface. This simple test lets you know how absorbent the stone is at that time. The test is easy. Just put som water on the stone in various places and see how fast it absorbs the water. The more absorbent, the more needed the sealer is.
How to Clean Persia Original
Another aspect of caring for your granite surface is to use a cleaner formulated for use on natural stone. Persia Original countertops and other surfaces are natural stone and sealing them is only one part. Not every household cleaner is made for use on natural stone. In reality, some cleaners actually break down natural stone sealers. So to maintain the seal that you are replenishing every-so-often, be sure to use a natural stone cleaner that will not degrade sealers. This is true of all sorts of natural stone cleaners. Let's look at some basic ones now.
One type of natural stone cleaner is the daily cleaner that is designed to remove the spots, smudges, and food residue that inevitably ends up on your Persia Original kitchen countertop. Another type of cleaner that is not as frequently needed is a stain remover. If your sealer breaks down and and an oil based liquid or a water based liquid gets into the pores of the granite, you may need this type of cleaning agent. These products are formulated to draw the stain out of the stone. But once again, keeping the sealer replenished on the stone reduces the need for these types of stone cleaners.
About Maintaining Persia Original
It really just boils down to putting together a regular routine of cleaning and sealing your natural Persia Original Granite surface. Once you get the routine into full swing, it just becomes second nature. A good routine for maintaining natural granite, including Persia Original, basically involves the following:
- Use a pH neutral cleaner to keep the sealer from breaking down and clean any debris from the surface.
- Reseal the surface of your granite surface when it gets "thirsty"*.
- Using a fortified stone polish periodically gradually maintains the sealer on the surface of the natural stone.
Persia Original Granite is a unique natural stone that will result in your design being truly unique. Your kitchen or other area will not only be appealing, but it will also be functional. Additionally, how you care for your Persia Original surface will play a role in how long it looks its best. However, for the best results, the install will most likely need to be handled by a professional fabrication company.
* A thirsty granite stone is one that quickly absorbs water resting on its surface. Simply put a tablespoon of water on the surface of the stone. The faster the water is absorbed, the "thirstier" the stone is.
