Granite, being a natural stone is porous -- shown by changing to a darker shade when you pour water over the granite. The water is absorbed by the granite and the shade becomes darker. Will return back to original shade when granite has dried.

Granite slab used for worktops must be sealed with a stone sealer, otherwise stains will be difficult to remove. The sealer is to seal the porosity of the granite slab. Granite worktop needs to be sealed once every 5-6 months to maintain its pristine condition.

If the granite is already stained, applying sealer will not remove the stain, but seals the stain instead!

Angel, your granite top supplier should be better able to advise you. If still under warranty maybe you should ask for replacement. :yamseng:

Hi Bluefly,

Don't think what Angel and myself are referring to here are stains... the shine is not consistant throughout the entire piece of granite. These areas that have a lesser shine are not the result of scratches or stains, rather they are patches demarcated by straight lines which I suspect may lie with how they polished the granite.

Any idea if this can be fixed? :dunno:

hi wishbone,

sorry, but i think u misunderstood my post. my point was that u use sealer to seal the granite, so buying & applying sealer as suggested by angel to do "something abt it" will not solve her problem.

patches in one area (presumably in a darker shade) demarcated by straight lines wld suggest the cutter used two granite slabs to cut and join together to produce a longer piece. i may be wrong, the shade may be natural, or man-made e.g. oil stain which is difficult to remove.

areas that have lesser shine is also the result of the polishing process. if so yr dealer should try to rectify the issue for you.

you paid good money for an expensive top and hv every right to demand satisfaction. i wanted indian black galaxy too for my worktop but dropped the idea as i wasn't assured i wld get what i paid for as there were too many variables that cld go wrong with the purchase.

sorry i can't offer anything more constructive.

ok thanks for the reply.

I am also confused how i should clean it. Mop it using plain water but seems like abit sticky so i was thinking of using detergent. Thought of using dettol also. Is it the Dettol for flooring? or should i get the detergent for granite floor which i saw in homefix?

I have good experience with Brother Ray.den Sim, he's a very nice guy and an extremely friendly person. Not calculative, not pushy. :)

As quoted by one happy customer also,

I would like to share with you my encounters with Master Ray.den.

It all started about 1 year plus ago when I was in the midst of renovating my SengKang flat.

While my wife and I were busying surfing the various local forums for ideas, we came across his Tian Lu Feng shui website and were smitten by one of his Pi Xiu. That prompted me to give him a call to enquire about the price and to arrange for a meet up. That meet up had been very informative to us! Master Ray.den was patient and kind enough to explain in details our queries about Pi Xiu and its placement in our flat. We did not strike the deal with Master Ray.den on our first meet up. It was only after a couple of visits to his shop before we bought our very first Pi Xiu from him. Master Ray.den remained helpful and patient with us throughout our multiple meetings and that really impressed us. Unlike many sellers who would try all means to convince you to buy on the spot, Master Ray.den was totally patient and we never felt obliged to buy from him. It was more like exchanging of pointers and ‘friend to friend’ discussion.

During his first visit to my flat to determine the best location to place our Pi Xiu, he gave us invaluable renovation advice too. He was aware that I had already engaged a fenghui master but yet he was generous enough to share with us his expert opinions about the wall colours, placement of furniture, what to look out for etc totally free of charge! To be frank, we were unaware that the wall colours matters and were glad that Master Ray.den was there with us. Compared to the other fenghui master whom I had engaged, we find that Master Ray.den's advice was more flexible. His belief is that there are more than one ways to overcome any bad spot in the flat and then he provided us with alternative solutions which we applied and very grateful to him for his unselfish act.

I believe his feng shui advice will appeal to those who have certain ideas of how their flats should look like and hope that the feng shui advice or items will blend well with their concepts. He is more accommodating to your concept and will propose solutions that will achieve ‘Win-Win’ results for most aspects. Nevertheless, expect to receive his very frank opinion and if he has no alternative solution, he will tell you so.

Another thing I like about his service is that he will follow through with his clients. At any point when we are unsure about some feng shui stuff, we will call him at his mobile and he will attend to us. If time permits and he is available, I am confident that he will be there on site to advise his customers.

I am not sure if you guys are aware that Master Ray.den offers wedding services package (ROM date, Customary wedding date, Guo Da li date etc )too. I must comment that his service is extremely good, at least to me. I engaged his service last year and because of various reasons, my wife and I had to change my Guo Da li and customary wedding dates couple of times. Master Ray.den was equally busy as he had to reassess the dates and reply us. Well, he didn’t request for additional fee! Nearer to our customary wedding day, he helped us to prepare all the offerings and accompanied us to the temple for prayer.

He even went the extra mile by turning up at 5 am at my place on our customary wedding day and accompanied me and my brothers to fetch my wife. Well, I am not sure if you can find such service elsewhere without burning a big hole in your pocket. In fact, we gave him an Ang Bao containing nominal sum as a token of our appreciation.

To Master Ray.den,

My wife and I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to you for your help rendered throughout our wedding preparation. You are a nice guy and really glad to know you. May your business 发发发. Thanks again.

Michael and Cherie
