Quartz is Non-Porous
Quartz countertops are considered “engineered” or manmade. They are inherently non-porous due to the manufacturing process. Manufacturers press quartz minerals together with binders like epoxy or resin to create a material that is sealed all on its own, therefore cleaning of Quartz is effortless.
While some quartz countertops also contain pigments, glass, or other materials for design, they are non-porous and water-resistant.
Do Quartz Countertops Need to Be Sealed?
Quartz countertops never need to be sealed, and they are relatively easy to maintain. A common myth has led many people to believe that Quartz counters need to be sealed every year—but the truth is that they never need sealing. They are sealed on their own.
Do Quartz Countertops Stain?
Quartz countertops are incredibly resistant to stains from messy spills like coffee, wine, oil, juice, or anything else you might spill in the kitchen. Because Quartz countertops are non-porous, these liquids will not seep into the minerals.
If your Quartz countertop is discolored, it may be the result of exposure to heat or sunlight.

With countless options for color and pattern combinations, Quartz is an attractive and durable option for the countertops in your bathrooms or kitchen.
