Quartzstone Worktops Essex
What is Quarzstone??
Quartzstone is crystallised silicon dioxide (SiO2), which, when combined with stain resistant polymers, produces a hard wearing, non-porous material. The primary advantage of this property is that, unlike natural stone products (e.g. marble, granite, limestone and wood), quartzstone does not require a sealant that must be periodically reapplied. The colour is also consistent throughout.
Quartzstone can also have added Microban, an antibacterial application which is built into the stone during the manufacturing process. Due to these attributes, quartzstone can be resistant to scratches, abrasion, and everyday stains like tea, coffee and cooking oils.
Quartzstone Maintenance and Care
Marble in general is a soft stone that can be easily damaged or stained. Make sure to blot stains with a soft cloth as soon as they occur. Use trivets or mats under any hard object to prevent scratching. Products containing alcohol or citrus extracts can seriously damage marble surfaces. Use warm water and a soft cloth or sponge. Even mild deterge nts and mild soap can damage marble, so please do exercise caution when cleaning your quartz countertops, quartz worktops, general quartzstone and marble.
