Considerations for Using Barwon Quartz

  • Installation: Due to its weight, professional installation is recommended to ensure proper support and alignment. Adequate structural support must be provided to accommodate the heavy material.
  • Heat Resistance: Barwon Quartz is heat resistant but not heatproof. Avoid placing hot pots and pans on the surface to prevent thermal shock and potential damage.
  • UV Exposure: Although UV resistant, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause slight fading over time, especially with darker colours. Consider using shades or protective covers in outdoor applications to minimise UV exposure.
  • Seams: In large installations or complex designs, seams may be necessary. While efforts are made to minimise their visibility, seam placement should be carefully planned to ensure a cohesive look.
  • Chemical Sensitivity: While Barwon Quartz is resistant to many household chemicals, avoid prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals such as bleach or abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the surface finish. Clean spills promptly to prevent staining.
  • Cost: Barwon Quartz is a premium material, and its cost reflects its quality and durability. The initial investment budget should include material, installation, and maintenance costs.

Considering these factors will help you maximise the lifespan and performance of your Barwon Quartz countertops, ensuring they remain a beautiful and functional addition to your space for years to come.

Care and Maintenance

  • Daily Cleaning: Wipe the surface with a soft cloth or sponge, mild detergent or soap, and water to remove daily dirt and grime. Avoid abrasive cleaners or scouring pads that may scratch the surface.
  • Stain Prevention: While Barwon Quartz is highly stain-resistant, it is advised to promptly clean spills from acidic or strongly coloured substances like wine, coffee, or tomato sauce to prevent potential staining. Use a mild detergent or a specialised quartz cleaner for tougher stains.
  • Heat Protection: Although heat resistant, it’s best to use trivets or hot pads when placing hot cookware on the surface to prevent thermal shock and potential damage.
  • Avoiding Scratches: While Barwon Quartz is scratch-resistant, it’s not scratch-proof. Use cutting boards and avoid sliding abrasive objects across the surface to maintain its smooth finish.
  • Sealing: Unlike natural stone, Barwon Quartz does not require sealing. Simply clean the surface regularly to preserve its shine and integrity.
  • Polishing: Periodically polishing the surface with a quartz polish can help maintain its lustre and minimise surface marks. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the best results.
