Why Is Quartz a Good Material for Flooring?

When choosing the material for the flooring in a commercial space, there are multiple options you can consider. They all have their pros and cons, but there’s one that stands out from the crowd: quartz. Why is quartz flooring the preferred choice for so many commercial and industrial spaces? Much of it has to do with quartz’s natural characteristics. Rikett Quartz Tile combines the natural characteristics of quartz with innovative design to create high-performance quartz flooring.


Let’s take a look at just a few of the great features and characteristics of quartz flooring.


Easy to Clean

Quartz is naturally non-porous, which makes it stain resistant and easy to clean. If something spills on the floor, all you have to do is mop it up and then clean the area with a neutral cleaner. Because it is so easy to clean, quartz flooring is ideal for all industrial and commercial spaces, including medical facilities, schools, and retail stores. RQT also comes in large format 24” x 24” tiles, which reduces the number of seams. This makes it easier to disinfect the floor because there are fewer spaces for bacteria to hide.


Difficult to Damage

Another reason commercial and industrial spaces favor RQT is its durability. Quartz is is naturally very hard, measuring a 7 out of 10 on the Mohs hardness scale. RQT enhances the natural durability of quartz to make flooring that can withstand 3,000 PSI. Whether you need your floor to hold up against repeated foot traffic or a forklift, quartz tile is a reliable choice.



Reducing environmental impact is important to many businesses today. The amount of waste and energy that goes into making a product is a factor in whether or not they choose to purchase it. Quartz is the most abundant mineral on earth, so quartz flooring is not only made from a naturally-occurring material but there is also no need to ship it around the world for manufacturing. Even better, RQT is 100% recyclable.
