Quartz Countertops by Mogastone
Quartz is growing in popularity because of it’s sleek, elegant, and modern design.
What is Quartz?
Quartz is an engineered stone surface which is made of 90-94% of crushed stone, mainly quartz, bound together by an adhesive. Quartz is not mined like natural stones but instead is engineered in a factory. In the past, quartz did not have many color options, but now with today’s technology, quartz has a huge variety of different colors and styles.
Why Use Quartz?
Quartz is a great choice for kitchens and baths because it gives a clean, simple look and is antimicrobial. Since quartz fits the design of any modern kitchen, it’s lately become a very popular material for kitchen countertops. With today’s technology, quartz can look just like marble and still have all the benefits of quartz, and with the ability to mimic the look of marble, quartz countertops can really lighten and brighten up a kitchen.

Caring for Quartz Countertops
Since quartz is non-porous, it’s very easy to care for. For daily cleaning you can simply use water, dish soap, paper towels, or a damp sponge to clean the countertops. Because it’s not a porous stone, quartz is very stain-resistant, especially when compared to most other countertop materials. You also never need to seal quartz since it’s a non-porous stone. Because of the composition of quartz, heat and light from the sun and heat from pots and pans can damage the color of quartz.
