Anti-bacterial quartz countertops | Beautiful kitchen countertop


Home is your sanctuary, and your kitchen is the heart of it!

Kitchens are made for bringing families together; they have become even more critical and central to daily life, as we have been staying-indoors due to the globally impacting, COVID-19 virus. Beyond the virus, there are other germs to protect yourself against, especially in the kitchen, where food is prepared. The recent focus on home makes you think about improving your kitchen and considering creating a space that is anti-bacterial and stays clean longer.


Porous countertops can be a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, and mildew. Sealing helps limit the growth of bacteria, and mold, but as they can wear away, the risk of growing bacteria, molds, and mildew increases. Quartz is non-porous in nature and hence, it’s difficult for bacteria, mold, and mildew to grow and replicate, making it an ideal choice for the kitchen and bathroom countertops.


VIVA’s quartz surfaces are NSF certified making them suitable to come in contact with food and edible items. Our anti-bacterial surfaces have become the shield of thousands of countertops in both domestic and commercial spaces.

One material that gives you the beauty, hygiene and durability of natural stone, but which is also non-porous is Quartz. As a result, quartz countertops are non-porous with nowhere for bacteria to hide. Daily recommended maintenance for your quartz countertop is easy too — all you need is a non-abrasive cleaning cloth with soap and water.


All countertops should be washed, particularly after having raw food placed on them, and cutting boards should always be used as well. Depending on the antibacterial agent used, this can help kill the bacteria, which will also help keep your kitchen safe.


To help prevent this issue from occurring, and to help prevent the spread of food-borne illnesses in the home, an anti-bacterial countertop is an answer!
