At Omega, we offer Quartz work surfaces as one of our work surfaces of choice. Quartz can be made to any specification we have designed for you in-house using the latest cutting, processing and polishing tools. Our Quartz solutions are ideal for kitchen worktops, but also we have designed and installed our Quartz solutions into bathrooms, spa rooms, spa surroundings, wet rooms, fireplaces, hearths, alfresco tops, vanity tops, staircases and risers, flooring and cladding , tables and desktops.
The Colour of our Quartz
The images of Quartz and Quartz Worktops that we display on our website are the best possible representation of the material without seeing it with your own eyes. The photographs are subject to the colour reproduction process of the photography that was used to capture the images, as well as the screen that you are viewing it on.
The environment in which something is viewed also makes a contribution and, as such, we strongly advise that our clients come to see the Quartz in person at the Omega Interiors showroom.
Caring for your Quartz
Your quartz worktops are an investment which we appreciate you will want to keep in pristine condition and we would like to provide you with some advice on how to take best care of your new quartz surfaces.
Unlike granite and other natural materials, quartz surfaces are non-porous and do not require sealing or waxing. There are however some ‘best practice’ tips we would like to make you aware of to keep your surfaces looking at their very best for years to come.
Day-to-day Cleaning and Care
Your surfaces can be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth… never use bleach, chlorine based products and/or scouring pads/cloths. Warm soapy water is more than adequate in most cases.
Avoid letting acidic or foodstuffs likely to cause staining settle or dry on the surface. Wine, curry, fruit juice and soda water all have the possibility to to stain the resin if left to settle.
If foodstuffs have dried on the surface please use a plastic scraper, such as a car ice scraper, to remove the majority of the foodstuff and then clean with warm soapy water. Never use a metal scraper or knife.
Quartz, as a material, is heat resistant but is vulnerable to rapid changes in temperature or prolonged exposure, so always place hot pans on trivets or hot-pads.
Your quartz surface is scratch resistant but to avoid deep scratching caused by serrated bread knives or professional chef’s knives always use a chopping board when cutting or preparing food.
