Natural materials such as quartz can be mixed with other crushed stones and bound together with resin to create a beautiful alternative to single-material slabs. The formulations of color and vibrancy in engineered stone offer a wide range of options. Though extremely durable, engineered stone is more commonly applied to carefully-crafted interior design schemes for kitchens and bathrooms, with its non-porous characteristic making it a preferred choice for these settings.

How To Clean Quartz

The upkeep for quartz is minimal, but it's still crucial to clean spills promptly to maintain the surface's appearance and prevent potential staining, even though quartz is stain-resistant. Quartz surfaces can be cleaned using mild detergent, water, and a soft cloth or paper towel. After cleaning, it’s important to rinse and dry thoroughly. Avoid abrasive cleansers, harsh scouring pads, and bleach as these can damage the surface​. Quartz does not require sealing or waxing to protect against stains and mildew, making it relatively low-maintenance compared to natural stone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Quartz Countertops Seamless in Design?

Whether your quartz countertops will be seamless depends on the size of your kitchen and the layout of your lower cabinets. The common maximum slab length for quartz is 125” L x 65” W, so if your lower cabinets are longer than 125” in length, your countertops will have to be seamed.

What Special Precautions Should Be Taken When Cooking Near Quartz?

Quartz can be affected by extreme heat, so it's recommended to use cutting boards, trivets, and hot pads while preparing meals to prevent damage​​.

Will Quartz Countertops Stain?

Quartz's non-porous surface makes it very resistant to staining, more so than marble. It can resist most common kitchen spills like oil, coffee, wine, and juice. However, it's not 100% stain-resistant and is susceptible to stains from solvents, sodium hydroxide, and permanent markers​​.
