Green quartz countertops are becoming more common in American cuisine. With a wide range of benefits, quartz not only looks good, it is also durable and well suited for typical household use. Because quartz is not porous like granite, it is of course scratch, heat and dirt repellent. This strong material is ideal for use on kitchen and bathroom countertops, islands and back splashes.
In addition to being resistant to scratches, green quartz countertops is also almost freak proof. Coffee, vinegar, wine, fruit juices, lemon juice and other foods that usually stain surfaces do not penetrate this non-porous material. It is also slightly heat resistant, but a hot pad should used when placing a hot dish on the counter to avoid burning. Another advantage of the non-porous surface is the resistance to mold and mildew, which makes it a hygienic counter surface. Green quartz countertops can also finished with a decorative edge to match the style of the room.
One reason green quartz countertops are so popular its easy maintenance. It is almost maintenance free compared with granite. Because of the non-porous nature, it is not necessary to seal the surface. Just wipe with warm water to clean and a pH-neutral, non-abrasive detergent. Always check the manufacturer’s instructions for specific cleaning recommendations.
