Quartz benchtops are renowned for their durability, which is one of the key reasons they have become one of the most popular kitchen and bathroom surfaces available today. Quartz is one of the most abundant and hardest minerals on the earth’s surface and the manufacturing process that combines quartz with other minerals, pigments and resins means an engineered surface that is highly durable, non-porous and resistant to staining.
The kitchen benchtop, one of the most common applications for quartz surfaces, is the heart of the home, and can multifunction as a meal preparation area, an office desk and homework hub. The build-up of grease and grime, food and liquid spills, newspaper ink, tea and coffee stains can leave your benchtops looking worst for wear. So why do quartz surfaces discolour, stain and mark? The main reason for this is your quartz benchtop surface has small pores which, on microscopic level, form small undulations that can trap dirt and spills. The size of the pores can depend on the polish level and can vary from manufacturer.
Most surface stains and discolouration can be removed with a little knowhow and daily maintenance.
