QUARTZ

Quartz countertops are a mix of quartz and man-made resin. They are more susceptible to damage from heat than granite but are less likely to stain, are nearly indestructible and are almost maintenance free.

QUARTZ CARE (Quartz countertop maintenance)

Quartz countertops are nearly indistructible. This means that with simple care, quartz will retain its radiant, lustrous appearance for many years. For routine cleaning, simply wipe down your countertop with a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary (warm water will usually do the trick), a small amount of non-bleach, non-abrasive cleanser.

DO THE FOLLOWING

The easiest way to keep your quartz surface looking great is to avoid bad habits that may damage it. Make sure to clean all spills quickly by simply using some hot water – even on white quartz countertops. Remember that quartz is not heat-proof, so use cutting boards and trivets or heat pads and avoid placing hot pots and pans on the surface. 

AVOID THE FOLLOWING

Liquids such as wine, coffee, fruit juices, vinegar, tea, and most cold drinks, can leave stains. So can cutting fruit and vegetables.  

Keep things like bleach and high pH cleaners, solvents and other powerful chemicals, as well as permanent markers and other inks away from the surface. 

ADVANTAGES OF QUARTZ

  • Quartz countertops are nearly indestructible. 
  • Quartz countertops require no maintenance (you still have to wipe them clean though).
  • You can choose your own colour (virtually ANY colour you can think of), and have your quartz countertop custom-made. 
  • Quartz countertops resist staining and corrosion because of the durability of the surface.

DISADVANTAGES OF QUARTZ

  • Heat can easily damage your quartz countertop
  • Quartz countertops can be as expensive and sometimes even more expensive than granite counters.
  • Sink options are limited as integrated sinks are not incorporated into a quartz countertop.
