granite counter tops dull and chipped

We remodeled our kitchen. I chose granite for my new counter tops. I shopped around and went with a company that was suppose to be one of the top installers. There were some small chips after they had installed, they have not taken care of it. Is there a company that can smooth them out? Also they are dull, is there a product that will really bring shine and help against fingerprints? We live in utah. thank-You
 

Dear Lisa:

 

Is there a company that can smooth them out?

 

Yes: a bona-fide stone restoration company. You first check this list at: http://www.marblecleaning.org/supporters.htm and see if there's one in your area. If not, they are usually listed in the Yellow Pages under “Marble and Terrazzo Cleaning.”

 

Also they are dull, is there a product that will really bring shine and help against fingerprints?

 

If they are dull, there's got to be a reason. Maybe the stone you chose is not a big shiner, or maybe the factory finish was not up to par… One thing is for sure, it is not inside a bottle that you will ever find a solution to that problem. Only a proficient stone restoration contractor could make a sure assessment and, possibly, find a solution – if any. However, if you're looking for a product that, in conjunction with a good-quality cleaning agent will help keeping finger marks at bay, I recommend good quality products like MB-5 and MB-13.

 

May I ask you now to please read and e-sign our Statement of Purpose at: http://www.marblecleaning.org/purpose.htm?

Ciao and good luck,
