Quartz Worktop

Quartz

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. 

A care kit can be obtained directly from our workshop at 51A High street Harrow HA3 5DQ. This will help with the longevity of your stone surface. 

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

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.

Never stand, sit or put heavy weights on the worktop, especially around sinks and hobs where the material may be weaker.
