How much maintenance does a quartz worktop require?

The use of quartz for kitchen worktops has become increasingly popular over the last 20 years. It is considerably more durable than natural stone such as granite and marble, quartz is also just as stunning as its competitors. Many homeowners with natural stone surfaces are growing tired of the frequent wiping and resealing required to maintain the stone, with many choosing to replace their worktop with a quartz alternative.

One of the main selling points of quartz is that it is a non-porous material. Therefore, it doesn’t soak up stains like natural stone. This makes it a lot easier to maintain as it requires less cleaning. This makes it perfect for those with busy lifestyles who don’t have the time available to schedule in routine cleaning, it’s also popular with young families who are more likely to experience kitchen spillages. Quartz’s non-porous surface makes wiping away both liquid simple and easy.

As well more cleaning, natural stone also needs to be resealed every few years to keep them in pristine condition. With Quartz, resealing isn’t necessary, once your quartz has been sealed it becomes a permanent characteristic of the countertop. This means that once your quartz countertop has been installed, you will not have to worry too much about maintenance.

As quartz is made mostly from silicon dioxide, there is the chance that it can become discoloured when exposed to extreme from items such as hot pans. It is worth purchasing a heat resistant trivet which can be used to place hot pans on, this will keep your quartz worktop looking sleek and well maintained. You should also avoid preparing food directly on the worktop as sharp objects such as knives can scratch your new surface.

If you’re looking for a quartz worktop which is sure to transform your kitchen area, Capital granite has an extensive range of both quartz and natural stone, and we are sure that you’ll find the perfect countertop for your home.
