Everything You Should Know About Quartz

Are you in the process of remodeling your home or in the process of building your dream home? We want to introduce you to a relatively new option that’s turning home-owners and designers heads one Quartz slab at a time! 

WHAT IS QUARTZ

Quartz is a man-made material —raw Quartz with resin, pressed together to create a consistent pattern from slab to slab. It consists of about 93% crushed ground quartz and 7% resin to form a surface comparable to granite in many ways. This is the slab that homeowners and designers are looking for as an alternative to natural stone countertops that are just as reliable and durable as they are beautiful.

 

 

DURABILITY

Do you ever get so excited about the timer going off for the chocolate chip cookies in the oven, and before you know it, you’re carrying a hot pan in your hand without securing a suitable spot to put down the cookie sheet? Or you’re enjoying a wine night, and all of a sudden, there’s a big red spill on your beautiful countertop? No need to fret! Resistant to heat, scratches, wear and tear while also being nonporous, therefore very stain resistant, Quartz is a strong and hard material.

HOW AND WHERE QUARTZ IS USED

Whether it’s your family gathering around the kitchen island or you brushing your teeth at your bathroom vanity, Quartz is used in a variety of different ways. It’s truly is an exquisite piece of stone to complete any renovation in your home! 

 

 

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF QUARTZ

Regular cleaning should be done with a mild soap or detergent and a soft cloth. Make sure the soap is non-bleach and non-abrasive. Although very stain resistant, Quartz countertops are not completely stain proof. Wipe up liquids as soon as possible. Quartz will resist stains for a period of time, but all colored liquids should be cleaned up promptly. A glass or surface cleaner, such as Windex, can be used for heavy or dried-on stains. For deep cleaning, spray a generous amount; leave on for ten minutes, then wipe away. Remove ink or permanent markers carefully with an oil-based cleaner, like Goo Gone. Rinse with warm water immediately after the stain is removed. Avoid using knives directly on Quartz countertops. Quartz is very scratch-resistant, but it can be damaged when forcefully hit with sharp objects. A cutting board is recommended. Avoid cleaning with highly acidic or alkaline cleaners, such as nail polish remover, turpentine, oven cleaner, bleach, drain cleaners, dishwasher rinsing agents, etc. Clean immediately with a mild detergent and rinse if it is spilled on. Also, avoid pressure or force on your countertops, such as dropping a heavy pot, as it can chip or crack the stone.
