When will I know if it is time to re-seal my granite?

Q. When will I know if it is time to re-seal my granite?

A. To find out if your stone is still adequately sealed, spill some water on it and wait for approximately half an hour, then wipe it dry. If the surface of the stone did not darken it means that the stone is still adequately sealed. You may want to do this test in the most used areas.
