It is often said that the hardest working tool in any kitchen is the worktop, which gets exposed to multiple food and liquids spills as well as receiving countless knocks from any number of utensils. Therefore  kitchen counters have to be resilient and able to withstand life in the hardest working room in the house.

Quartz ( also known as composite or engineered stone ) is non-porous, hard wearing, resistant to heat and scratching material, which  doesn’t require sealing, making it very easy to maintain. Combined with the aesthetic advantages, the durability of quartz makes it top choice for  kitchen surfaces for many customers. Quartz is one of nature’s hardest materials, naturally occurring and commonly found in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. Quartz worktop surfaces are typically engineered using 93% natural quartz, along with various resins and polymers to create a wide range of finishes for strong , durable and sleek timeless finish.

The non-porous qualities of the surface mean Quartz does not absorb any liquids and prevents staining , making it the most hygienic surface for kitchens & bathrooms ( preventing build up of bacteria, germs , mould , etc.) . With the choice of endless finishes ( marble look, granite look, concrete effect and more )  and surface longevity of around 25 years , Quartz remains the number one choice of kitchen worktop worldwide!

Daily cleaning requires little more than a mild detergent and a clean damp cloth. Its non-porous properties mean that it never needs sealing and it remains one of the most hygienic surfaces available for kitchen spaces.

Cleaning detergents containing bleach , chlorine, hard chemicles, acids, alkalis or concentrated disinfectants could cause damage and should not be used on Quartz surfaces. If any of these come into contact with the stone, they have to be cleaned/ rinsed off  immediately, in order to avoid potential  damage and discolouration.
