Are you aware that your Formica countertop may harbor bacteria and fungi? - South Star Granite

Bacteria can grow on laminated countertops, just like any other type of countertop. Laminated countertops typically consist of a layer of material, such as Formica, bonded to a substrate material, such as particleboard or MDF.

The surface of a laminated countertop is usually non-porous, which means that it is less likely to harbor bacteria than some other types of countertops that have a porous surface. However, the substrate material underneath the surface can be porous and may absorb liquids, which can provide a suitable environment for bacteria to grow.

In addition, if the laminate surface is damaged, scratched or cracked, bacteria can penetrate through the surface and accumulate in the substrate material, making it more difficult to clean and maintain.

To prevent bacteria growth on laminated countertops, it’s important to keep them clean and dry. Regular cleaning with a mild detergent and warm water, followed by a disinfectant spray or wipe, can effectively remove bacteria and prevent them from growing. It’s also important to address any damage to the surface of the countertop promptly to prevent bacteria from accumulating in the substrate material.
