In order to maintain the beauty of your countertop, it is important to care for it. While quartz and granite are more resistant to stainds, heat, and scratches, they are still susepitble to damage! Marble is a much more porous surface, which requires extra care. We always recommend that spills be addressed immediately. It is important to keep all liquids, including water, off of the countertops. Avoiding acidic liquids such as wine, vinegar, lemon, etc. is especially important. Sealing your countertop is a good way to prevent damage, and some sealants last upwards of 15 years!
