Quartz is one of the most resilient materials when considering a kitchen worktop, it is a very popular choice for high traffic areas.
Quartz does not stain easily due to it’s non-porous nature and is scratch and heat resilient too, however we would always advice on using a heat protector when placing hot pots and pans on the surface.
Quartz is a man made stone which comprises of a minimum of 92% quartz and the rest resin, also as it is man made there is a bigger range of colours you can select.
QUARTZ CARE & MAINTENANCE
New stone worktops require a little day to day care. They are pre-treated with a liquid silicone sealer which reduces its natural porosity and provides a protective coating. It will take 7 days for the sealer to fully dry. Do not use the worktop for at least 24 hours then take care during the following few days.
We advise that you clean your quartz stone surfaces regularly with soapy water or a neutral mild detergent and a soft cloth/sponge. Rinse off surfaces with clean water. Polish dry with a soft cloth.
Bleach, chlorine based cleaners, acids, alkalis or concentrated disinfectants will damage your stone surfaces. We strongly advise NOT to use any of these on your surfaces. If any of these come into contact with the stone, clean them off immediately, otherwise surface damage and discolouration is likely to occur.
Tumeric, beetroot, berries and other foods which stain can leave marks on your stone surfaces. Equally, acidic foods and drinks can etch the stone surface and cause irreversible damage. Always use pan stands and trivets to protect stone surfaces from hot and rough pans and utensils. Direct contact can scratch and stain the stone surfaces.
Always use cutting boards to chop and slice food upon. Never cut directly onto the stone surfaces. Although quartz is a scratch resistant material, it is not scratch proof.
