There are certain features of soapstone, which make it great to be used as a sink. One of these features is that soapstone is highly heat-resistant. This means that you do not have to worry a bit, even if you keep hot utensils directly in the sink for cleaning. Soapstone can withstand heat to a large extent and thus, would not get damaged at all because of it! Another feature of soapstone is that it does not stain easily. So, any sort of chemicals, acids or ingredients in foods will not be able to spoil the look of a soapstone sink. Now, the best part about having a soapstone sink - soapstone is completely impenetrable. So, you can rest assured that no amount of water will be able to enter it and cause any kind of dampness.
Once you replace the valve seat carefully, make sure you replace all the other damaged parts, namely - washer, valve stem, and possibly the faucet handle as well. Make sure you replace washers of both, hot as well as the cold water supplies, as a precautionary measure.
If you find that the threading has loosened or has worn out, remove it and replace it with regular plumbing threads. Make sure you wrap it tightly around the stem or else it may get entangled with some other internal components.
