The potential of materials such as marble means this would have been a potential stain relapse! The Bianco Pietra provides a more pronounced shine that requires a little more in terms of maintenance where one has to scrub off harsher stains with harsher chemicals (and elbow grease) that might do more harm than good over time as compared to simply giving your surface with Calacatta quartz a quick swipe with a damp cloth. It makes the countertops nearly impervious to dirt and contaminants and saves you the added trouble of having to hire special services for professional cleanings or maintenance products.

Dryden and her research team conducted a national survey of homeowners and found that families using Calacatta quartz for their kitchen countertop could reduce kitchen maintenance time by up to 50 percent compared to those with more porous materials. This substantial cut in time means that busy families can spend more time on family, as opposed to maintaining a home.

This means fewer replacements and repairs throughout the life of the kitchen — saving some cash whilst also saving the hassle of installation for busy families.

The classic style offered by Calacatta quartz is the perfect way to keep things clean in a busy family home, with hygiene as much of a concern as the look and finish of the kitchen.
