Porcelain is a ceramic material made by heating clay-type materials to high temperatures. It has a white, fine-grained body that is usually translucent. Long ago, porcelain was known as a delicate, decorative material used for beautiful china. However, today’s porcelain is a durable, heavy-duty surface material that can stand its own against other natural surfaces. Porcelain slabs, often used for countertops or flooring, match quartz and granite in terms of their strength. It is scratch, stain, heat, and UV resistant meaning that you can enjoy this essentially worry-free surface option. Porcelain is desirable because of its ease of maintenance since it is easy to clean and does not stain.
Porcelain slabs are manufactured to be hygienic and reduce the opportunity for mildew and mold to grow because they are non-porous. Because of this, they do not need to be sealed like natural stone. For regular cleaning, use a warm damp cloth but for more stubborn marks, a simple sponge with stain remover will do the job. Although porcelain is scratch-resistant and non-porous, we do not recommend using steel wool pads or cleaning products with hydrofluoric acid or its derivatives. The best way to ensure the impeccable status of your porcelain countertops is to be diligent and clean up spills right away.
