The Best Kitchen Countertop Surfaces To Reduce Germs

Your home is your sanctuary, and the heart of it is your kitchen. It is more than just a place to cook; it is also a gathering spot for family and friends. Why wouldn't you want that critical area to be among the cleanest in your house? With the suitable kitchen countertops  materials, your kitchen may be not only easier to clean but also easier to maintain.

 

Maintain A Clean Kitchen, Including While You're Cooking

Aside from the headline-grabbing coronaviruses, there are other bacteria to be wary of, particularly in the kitchen, where food prepares. E. coli, salmonella, and listeria are three of the most frequent bacteria that cause sickness in the United States, and they may all find in the kitchen. The Los Angeles Times published some solid kitchen cleaning recommendations, including:

 

  • Immediately wash filthy dishes, cutting boards, pots, and pans.
  • Always wash your hands before sitting down to eat after preparing your meal.
  • Maintain a cleaning practice that includes wiping off surfaces regularly.
  • Remove rubbish regularly.
  • As you cook, clean up.
  • Prevent cross-contamination by keeping raw meat away from other foods and using a separate chopping board.
  • When tasting your gourmet product, avoid "double-dipping." Each time, use a fresh spoon.

 

Germs Found On Kitchen Countertops

Many beautiful materials, including wood and genuine stone, are permeable in reality. Bacteria can thrive in the microscopic crevices on these surfaces because they need everything: food, moisture, and a comfortable temperature. We propose a non-porous countertop surface for your kitchen to reduce hazardous bacteria, viruses, and other undesirables such as fungus and mold. Aside from being free of naturally occurring cracks or fissures, these surfaces are resistant to etching, stains, and divots (all signs of softer, more porous surfaces).

 

Quartz Countertop

Quartz is a highly durable and hygienic countertop material composed of natural minerals bonded together by polymers and resin. As a result, quartz countertops are non-porous and have no hiding places for microorganisms. Daily maintenance for your quartz countertop is simple; you only need a non-abrasive cleaning cloth, soap, and water.

 

Countertops Made Of Solid Surface

CorianĀ® is created over 40 years ago by combining pure acrylic resin with natural minerals. Its grout-free design makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze for homeowners. Non-porous and stain-resistant solid surface. Cleaning requires only a gentle cotton cloth and warm, soapy water. DO NOT USE HARSH COMMERCIAL CLEANERS ON CORIA since they can cause damage to your solid surface counters. Also, avoid using window cleaners, which can leave a waxy buildup on the surface. Our favorite quality of solid surface countertops is that they are highly durable, repairable, and resistant to heat and blades.

 

Countertops Made With Laminate

Laminates have gone a long way and can provide a high-end aesthetic at a low cost. Wilsonart high-definition laminates are especially appealing since they are antibacterial and can be used to produce practically any look, from natural stone to wood.

 

While laminate countertops build to survive, you should avoid excessive damage to the surface whenever possible and keep the seams in mind. Can handle daily cleanings with a soft cotton towel and soapy water or mild household cleansers. However, if large amounts of water remain on laminate countertops, particularly near seams, the countertop may swell, providing more opportunity for bacteria, fungus, or mold to grow.

 

Granite Countertop

Mother Nature's granite is a popular natural stone countertop surface prepared from the finest grade naturally occurring material. To lessen porousness, granite, like marble, must be sealed. Professional sealing does more than just preserve the natural beauty of granite countertops; it also helps prevent the growth of hazardous bacteria and other germs. DO NOT clean your granite countertops with strong chemical cleaners or bleach.

 

ASASA Kitchen always recommends following the necessary care and maintenance instructions regardless of the countertop material you already have in your kitchen.
