Do Quartz Countertops Stain?

Updated: Mar 2, 2023

Although quartz is stain resistant, there may be a chance to develop some type of temporary surface stain over a extended period of time. The chance is minimal but after leaving your quartz surface with harsh/acidic chemically enhanced foods/dressing's/beverages for a long time you increase those odds. While it is recommended to clean your quartz countertops upon spillage, we realize that sometimes you get busy and may forget. So what should you do to fix the issue? Before making arrangements to have a third party professional help, contact your nearest Verona Quartz retailer/store.

The great news is that those faint stains can be removed, read along to learn how.

The manufacturing process for engineered stone makes quartz the great countertop choice. Quartz stone is pressed and cured for a vast amount of time ensuring the impenetrable surface.

We process and manufacture our surfaces using stable polymers with high chemical resistance so our quartz countertop slabs are safe for food preparation.
