Quartz Worktops Essex & London

Quartz worktops are non-porous, scratch and stain resistant. They are a very popular choice in kitchens and bathrooms because they are low maintenance and easy to clean. They are also extremely hard wearing, and their flexural strength means they can be installed in thinner slabs for a sleek finish.

How Are Quartz Worktops Made?

Quartz worktops are actually made up of powdered Quartz, which is mixed with Polyester Resin and Pigment. This mix is then moulded and the mixture sets as hard as rock. The pigments are key to the appeal of quartz worktops because they can be made in a wide range of styles and colours. It is possible to find a worktop to compliment any colour palette.

Quartz worktops are hand finished to accommodate things like sinks and cookers in style. The way worktops are moulded means you can control aspects like bevelled edges or tapered corners. They can also be made to be much thinner than worktops made from natural stone, laminate or real wood. This is largely due to the strength of the quartz-resin mixture, which is sealed and hardwearing.

Quartz Worktops Come In A Wide Range Of Colours

Quartz worktops are available in a wider range of colours. They boast a uniformity and consistency of colour and pattern but can also offer much purer, lighter colours too.

How To Look After Quartz Countertop

While quartz is a hardwearing, man-made stone, if it is poorly looked after then the usual qualities associated with it can diminish. This means that if the surface will be more prone to stains and watermarks. We always recommend our customers follow our guidance on how to clean quartz their worktops.

There are some basics to quartz worktop maintenance. Quartz worktops are one of the lowest maintenance but a daily wipe with a damp cloth is essential. You should also deal with spillages as soon as they happen to avoid pools of water standing on the surface. The longer the substance is left on the quartz, the more damage it’s likely to do. Giving your worktops a wipe is a good practice that will help keep the surface looking better for a much greater amount of time.


Use Gentle Products To Clean Your Quartz Worktop

Cleaning your worktop with a scouring pad is a bad idea. You still need to ensure the cloth you’re choosing to use isn’t abrasive in any way. Microfibre cloths are by far the best option. Not only are they soft but they’re incredibly absorbent too.


As durable as your quartz worktop are, we strongly advise against using harsh chemicals on it; this means products such as bleach, citrus or caustic soda. These sorts of harsh cleaning products will affect the seal of the worktop. We recommend using warm soapy water, even just water works well enough. If you want to keep your kitchen free of bacteria then try using a weak alcohol cleaner.
