5 Countertop Tools You Can Buy Used

Countertops are one of the first things that people notice in your kitchen. Whether you are considering selling your home or you are just having guests over for dinner, you want to make sure that your countertops are ready to impress. If your countertops have some years on them, they also probably have some stains and odors on them also. You can clean up the countertops or have them replaced, depending on how severe the problem is.

Of course, the best thing to do is always hire a professional to do the work for you. But if you are on a strict budget and you are handy, you might be able to get away with doing the work yourself. Shopping at a local Phoenix pawn shop to buy used countertop repair tools can save you a lot of money. Here are a few of the tools you can find at a pawn store:

Handheld Spinner

Some stones and other materials are more porous than others, and if you aren’t consistent with sealing, that can also let debris into the tile. Plus, the grout will soak up liquids and other debris, becoming stained.

A handheld spinner can get your tile clean, including in the grout lines and the hard-to-reach corners. You won’t have to scrub away with a toothbrush or some other scrubber. You can get better results and do the work in less time with a handheld spinner. Plus, you can easily find one at a pawn shop in Scottsdale for less money than you would pay retail.

Grinder and Polisher

You can burn them with a pot that’s too hot or with a stove fire that spreads to the nearby countertop. You can drop materials on them while doing craft projects and then have trouble getting those materials clean.

A grinder can help you smooth down the hard stone, removing damage like burns or removing items that have bonded to the surface. A polisher can buff out light scratches or can gloss up a finish that you apply to the countertop. You can buy used countertop repair tools like these, as well as the replacement pads, from a pawn store in Scottsdale.

Grout Applicator

You will need to refresh the grout with a specialty paint made for it. The paint is mixed with a sealant also to prevent future stains from setting in.

While this grout paint is great at refreshing your tile, it can also be difficult to apply. You need a steady hand and a small brush to get the paint in the grout line only and not on the tile. A grout applicator makes the work a lot easier, feeding just the right amount of paint into the grout lines. These tools are quite affordable, but you can get them for even less at a Mesa pawn shop.

Wet Saw
