Quartz is a beautiful natural stone that is used in homes and businesses. You will most often see quartz used for countertops, but it is also used for flooring and siding or back splashes. Quartz is a low maintenance and fairly durable stone. However, even quartz will develop stains and will scratch easily if not properly cared for. For this reason, it is always recommended that you seal and maintain your quartz sealants. Silver State Floor Restoration would like to share why it is important to keep your quartz sealed and why it pays to seek a professional service.
Does Quartz Need to Be Sealed?
Quartz is a strong natural stone. However, it can still stain as this stone is full of tiny pores that can absorb fluid such as coffee, tea, juice and other staining substances. Quartz can also develop micro scratches or deep etching that ruins the beauty of the quartz. Scratches and stains can sometimes be worked out by grinding and smoothing out the surface of the stone. However, you can only grind down the stone so many times before you cannot do it anymore. Additionally, some stains can penetrate deep into the stone where they become permanent. For this reason, it is very important to protect your stone to prevent stains and reduce the number of times you grind and sand down the stone’s surface.
