Quartz Uses and Ideas
Quartz is an engineered stone, so it offers the best of both worlds – natural beauty and endurance. A lot of our customers boast about the longevity of the countertops we install into their homes. This is because quartz is engineered using resin, which acts like a sealant.
It helps to keep the quartz slabs in good condition for a very long time. The surface is nonporous which makes it difficult to stain. Then you can find quartz in a variety of colors. It is manufactured using pigments, which give it it’s varying color options.
One popular place homeowners install quartz into is the kitchen. This can be used for the counters, kitchen islands and backsplash. The durability of quartz makes it the perfect addition to kitchens. Since it’s nonporous, this means you can cook and prep foods without worries of food and liquid spills.

But the kitchen isn’t the only place where you can have quartz stone installed. You can also have it installed in your bathroom. This is the second most popular area you’ll find quartz.

Benefits of Quartz Countertops
Anyone who’s lived in a home with low-quality counters know the nuisance it causes. A low-end material, such as vinyl or laminate doesn’t last very long, which means you’ll end up dishing out more money over the long-term.
Look at it like this, paying for a cheap counter now and then paying to replace it every few years will cost you a whole lot more in the span of a decade. That’s compared to investing in a quality quartz countertop that lasts you at least a decade.
So, the investment in a quartz counter helps to save you money and a headache. Plus, it improves the functionality of your kitchen, now that you can chop and bake without worries of damaging your countertop.
The comfort of knowing you can do what you need to do in the kitchen without issues gives homeowners peace of mind. Then the maintenance plan for quartz counters is simple.
How to Clean Quartz Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops
You only need a few supplies to keep your quartz countertop looking amazing. It’s important to wipe down the counters daily. This alone can keep the surface beautiful, however some experts say you should do a deeper general cleaning regularly.
This requires a nonabrasive surface cleaner. Just spray a generous amount over the countertop and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Then wipe it up using a soft non-scratch sponge.
You never want to apply abrasives, acidic or alkaline cleaners on to the surface. This can cause the bonds to disintegrate, separating the quartz from the resin. So, stay away from dishwasher rinsing agents, oven cleaners, nail polish remover, drain cleaner and turpentine.
