Quartz as material is the second abundant mineral in the whole world. However quartz material used for designing quartz kitchen worktops is manmade material. Usually quartz worktops are made of 93 % of natural minerals (quartz crystals) and the rest proportionally are colour pigments and resin binders. But the combination of those materials makes solid stone product with uniform structure and durable, long lasting properties. Quartz is frequently used not only to produce absolutely amazingly looking quartz kitchen worktops but to manufacture glass and ceramics products too.
Of course the main difference between materials that are used to create quartz kitchen worktops and granite kitchen worktops is that quartz (quartz composite) material is manmade but granite is totally natural one. However due to its properties quartz is really good alternative to natural materials. Quartz has a non-porous structure and this means that it’s highly resistant to liquids.
To clean and maintain your quartz kitchen worktop is really easy. If properly maintained your quartz worktops will keep its amazing look for many years. In order to clean it just use microfiber cloth together with warm soapy water and you are ready to go. To finish cleaning please use white cloth or paper in order to dry the quartz surface. Of course you can use special quartz cleaners that will not only clean but protect stone surfaces. Avoid using cleaners with acidic or abrasive properties. As quartz worktops are non-porous this makes these completely stain-resistant.
The one thing that you should keep in mind that quartz kitchen worktops are not heat proof. This means that in order to maintain its beauty do not place hot pots and pans directly to quartz surface instead use trivets and hot pads when placing hot objects on quartz worktops.
