Quartz

Quartz countertops are made from a mixture of natural quartz (one of the hardest minerals found in the earth) as well as resin and glass or metallic flecks to create the beautiful designs you can find in our showroom. Quartz is non-porous which means that it will not allow bacteria to grow, it is also very stain resistant. Quartz provides a wide variety of designs and is the lowest maintenance counter material you will find. You will never need to seal this product.

Maintenance

  • The best cleaner for Quartz is water with a PH neutral dish soap on a damp cloth.
  • Another good cleaner is the LIQUID Vim Oxy Gel all purpose cleaner
  • Do not use anything with a bleach base or an acidic effect.
  • Do not use any type of degreasing agent such as those found in oven cleaner
  • Do not use any type of water repellent or sealer on quartz as it may lose it’s sheen, it’s also not necessary
  • Do not place anything hot on the surface, some people try to use a rule of thumb but really if there is any question it is better to use a heat pad. Once Quartz is burnt, unfortunately there is no fix as it will burn into the resin deep in the material.
  • Do not attempt to clean with any type of abrasive such as steel wool or soap with particulate in it, these will result in a scratched surface.
