Cambria

Cambria Quartz Colors: Berwyn, Annicca, Brittanica Gold, Galloway

One popular quartz countertop material is Cambria. Cambria is a surface that is used in a variety of environments. Whether it is used in a business office, conference room, break room, or a residential home, Cambria is a performant material that is non-porous and resistant to staining agents that are found around the home.

Cambria Compared to Granite

Granite is an all natural material that is quarried from the Earth. After it is taken out of the ground, it is sliced into sheets and prepared for use. Cambria is an engineered material made by combining natural quartz, resin and coloring pigments to produce a crafted stone countertop. These materials share some common characteristics. For example, they are both very hard and will resist scratching. Another similarity between Cambria and granite is that neither material is stain proof. So, it is important that you get use and care instruction from your fabrication professional or the installer.

Just as quartz and granite share some qualities, they also are different in various ways. Granite is a material that is porous. This means that it may need some extra care and maintenance. One type of care that is needed when it comes to granite is periodic sealing. Cambria is non porous and does not require sealing or polishing. Another difference between these materials is that granite comes in a virtually infinite number of colors and patterns. Each stone is 100% unique from every other stone. Cambria is limited to the colors and patterns that are currently available by the company.

Cambria Care and Maintenance

Since Cambria is a non-porous material, it is stain resistant. And even though it resists stains, it is not stain-proof. This means that it must be cared for according to the care instructions provided by the company. What is the approved way of caring for Cambria? Without covering an exhaustive list of care and maintenance rules, There are some basic directions given by the company. One of the guidelines is:

"Never use bleach and abrasive powders or scrubs like Comet®, Soft Scrub®, or S.O.S.® pads. In addition, never apply any sealers, penetrants, or topical treatments to Cambria. Such products will cause the surface to appear dull or inconsistent."

As you can see from the above quote - contrary to what you may have read on the Internet - bleach should not be used for maintaining your Cambria surface.
