Whilst beauty and sleek clear lines have often been cited by many householders in Leeds, the wider Yorkshire area, Cheshire and Humberside, as the main reason for their decision to purchase Caesarstone worktops, there has also been a growing interest in the superior hygienic nature of this stoneware.
Caesarstone is the result of tightly amalgamating pure quartz pieces inside a high-quality binding resin. The result of this skilled application is that any surface produced from Caesarstone – be it a breakfast bar, a food preparation area, or a sink surround – is virtually impossible to crack or penetrate in any way.
Regular kitchen activities such as chopping or cutting, for example, have been shown to have no impact on Caesarstone. By the same token, liquids such as sauces and strong food colourings which could easily ruin a laminate or acrylic worktop rarely, if ever, penetrate Caesarstone’s hermetically sealed surface.
With spillages usually requiring only wiping them away with soapy water, Caesarstone has shown itself to be one of the easiest materials to keep clean – and usually without the need to resort to antibacterial sprays.
Like most stone surfaces – including Compac Marmol, Compac Quartz, and granite worktops – those made from Caesarstone can also usually be further helped to remain clean and hygienic simply by the ways in which they are fitted.
The common practice of installing an undermount sink with Caesarstone quartz worktops, for example, avoids food debris from being trapped – as is so often the case when a sink is fitted flush with, say, a laminate worktop.
