Forget to clean up wine that spilled on your granite countertop during dinner? Did it leave a stain? If you’re nodding yes, we’re here to tell you that it’s okay – accidents happen, and we have just the solution for you! But first, let’s go over exactly why spilled wine stained your countertop, shall we?

(…especially if your spilled wine left a stain. Photo Creds:

There is a high chance that your wine has seeped into the surface and was absorbed by your granite countertop, particularly if your granite countertops aren’t properly sealed. Technically speaking, granite countertops are porous, meaning they basically act like a sponge. Organic stains, ink stains, metal stains and water stains are stubborn to clean because, as mentioned earlier, these types of substances seep into your granite surfaces causing unsightly, discolored marks. This is frustrating, we know! If you’ve tried everything and unable to remove your stain with normal cleaning measures, don’t panic! Our Surface Link certified technicians can remove those stubborn stains with our Granite Stain Extraction Treatment!

Identifying Stains

One of the first questions we’ll ask you is: “What type of stain do you have on your countertop?” or “Do you know what caused the stain?” Here is a list to help you identify the type of stain you have, which will also help us customize your countertop repair treatment:

  • Organic stains: Food related, such as fruit, tomato juice, coffee, wine, tea, mustard, ketchup, etc. These will typically leave stains in the shape of the staining culprit.
  • Ink Stains: Sharpie, pens, permanent ink, dye ink, highlighter. These will leave stains in the shape of blots, streaks, line marks, or alike.
  • Metal Stains: Rust, Copper, Bronze. These metals will leave an orange-brown colored stain.
  • Water Stains: Certain areas across the nation experience hard water, meaning there is a high mineral content in the water, such as calcium. Typically, hard water leaves stains in the shape of “rings”, particularly near or around your sink, faucets, or dishwasher.  


Surface Link’s proprietary stain extraction treatment will remove the above mentioned stains from granite surfaces. What do we use? Surface Link uses a specialized, non-harmful compound that absorbs deep stains right from your countertop!

How does this treatment work? Our Surface Link certified technician will first conduct a field test on the affected area to assess the damage and determine the proper extraction compound level required. Once the compound is applied and the area is protected, it will need to be left on the surface for at least 24 to 48 hours. After at least 24 hours, you will be instructed by your technician on our easy to follow removal process! Initially, the area that was treated may have a slightly darker appearance (this is due to the moisture in the compound). The moisture should fully dry within 24 hours from the time the compound was removed.

Voila – Stain Extracted!

Once the area has fully dried and you confirm the stain was successfully removed, we strongly recommend resealing the area. Check out our blog post on how to protect your countertop investment and why it’s important to seal your granite:
