Quartz Kitchen Hygiene

Nowadays, the term “hygiene” is closely related to the concepts of “health” and “cleaning”, since it is considered to be a key element in disease prevention and a person’s quality of life.

Hygiene-in-the-kitchen has traditionally been thought of as a set of actions related to care with food, good work practices, and the cleanliness of people, surfaces and utensils.

If kitchen surfaces are not properly cared for they can become a source of contamination for the food and utensils that come into contact with them. Moisture and warm temperatures are key factors for reproducing bacteria and can turn any surface, such as worktops, into a source of contamination.

To avoid contamination, it is important that surfaces be made from materials that are resistant, smooth and impermeable, and kept clean and dry.

Because of the compression system used in its production process, Silestone has a low level of fluid absorption. This makes it extremely hygienic for use in industrial cooking facilities.
