When choosing the material you want to have for your kitchen countertop, aside from its beauty and durability, another factor that you should consider is "Is it Safe & Hygienic?"
Perhaps one of the most prone to germs areas in your household is your kitchen, specifically your sink and workstation. These two places are where most of the action happens. Imagine the number of food you wash and prepare over these two sections.
Majority of the kitchen households would have countertops that are not precisely hygienic, this includes stone surfaces. This is because some people, unknowingly, choose materials that are porous. This means there are very tiny holes within the surface that permit water, food, and bacteria to seep through. Cleaning agents on a porous material can also be harmful to health since part of it will trickle into those holes and can contaminate your food just as much as dirt and germs can.
One of the most ideal surface materials to have for a kitchen countertop is Quartz. Compac Quartz Slabs are made with up to 95% pure quartz, one of earth’s strongest and most durable natural stones, mixed with resin, rendering it completely non-porous. Therefore, it does not allow dirt, molds, and bacteria to seep through its surface.
More importantly, Compac Quartz has acquired Food-Safety Certification from NSF, a third-party certification agent with a large experience in the development and testing of standards related to Food and Health Safety.
Compac Quartz Slabs are guaranteed hygienic and safe to be in direct contact with food and foodstuff of all kinds.
