At a time when hygiene is of paramount importance, being able to have in-built protection in your home is a welcome bonus. By selecting quartz worktops with such protection, you can potentially avoid your family contracting nasty illnesses. This is especially important at this time, as it’s preferable to avoid the need for avoidable medical attention during a pandemic.
