From some of the previous years, Quartz worktops Essex have been used in kitchens and bathrooms as a modern aspect of décor and beauty.

Hard and durable:
Quartz is considered to be one of the most durable and hardest materials on Earth. Because of it being so hard in nature it resists many cracks and scratches but it doesn’t mean it needs no care. Neglecting the regular cleaning can take a toll on the durability of the material. It is also non-porous and thus is resistant to weather changes.
Cleaning of quartz:
Cleaning as mentioned before should be done regularly but with a mixture of water (warm usually) and soap or any liquid which has some amount of ammonia in it. If something is spilled and is dried, scraping off gently with plastic only is useful and recommended. Sharp objects such as knives, scrubbers, etc. can cause damage to the surface. Avoiding direct contact with heat or fire is also recommended. Quartz can bear temperature up to 200°C but can corrode if the temperature is higher than that.
