During this period of health emergency is important to recognize the surfaces that give the SAFETY of hygienic and reliable use.
The quartz surfaces made by Stone Italiana are absolutely SAFE and RELIABLE from the HYGIENE point of view.
At a time like this, where consumers require a safe and easy to sanitze material, Stone Italiana offers a product that exactly meets these needs: the reconstituted quartz is a product with ABSORBENCE close to ZERO, so it doesn’t retain dirt inside and any bacteria on the surface are EASILY REMOVED with the use of alcohol-based degreasers and disinfectants.
Acid-based degreasers remove organic impurities, while alcohol-based sanitizing spray disinfectants (not alkalines) eliminate the possible presence of bacteria.
A simple daily maintenance with a sponge and suitable products, such as those indicated, are therefore required to have an absolutely safe surface.
These characteristics are all certified: Stone Italiana has always been very careful to have all the certifications that make our product at the forefront of consumer safety.
