Stands Up Against Liquid Spills

Another huge advantage of white quartz countertops is the fact that they are nonporous. Nonporous stones are great at resisting stains from liquid spills. You will not have to run and wipe off your countertops as soon as the accident happens. You can finish cooking your meal just do not forget to clean up the countertops after the fact. If you leave the spills on your counters, they may get damaged. Quartz is a stain resistant countertop but it is not proof of stains.
