By Mark Smith, The Washington Post-Herald Washington (AP) — A new type of cleaning quartz countertop that eliminates the need for expensive and messy vacuuming is getting a lot of attention from the cleaning industry.
The Deep Cleaning Quartz Countertop, a $99 product from Grove, Calif., is designed to remove dust and dirt while leaving an ultra-clean surface that is easy to clean.
Grove is hoping the Quartz Countertops will be used by thousands of homeowners in Washington state, where the state is seeing a dramatic rise in the number of cases of coronavirus.
Grooveshark CEO Peter Groves said he wants to help people who live in places where they can’t get a good night’s sleep.
Groves and his company are in the early stages of testing the product and is hoping to release it to the public by the end of the year.
Grooves products are available in the U.S. and in Canada.
Groves has raised $10 million from investors including the investment firm Fidelity Investments, as well as private investors.
Grooved by the concept of cleaning with air, the Quartz counters offer the convenience of a vacuum cleaner but are designed to be much more.
They’re made with air to absorb moisture from the air, eliminating the need to scrub the countertop every couple of hours.
The air bubbles that escape from the countertops can be captured and removed by using a vacuum brush or airbrush.
Groove says its product eliminates the use of a scrubber, which can be very costly.
It also doesn’t require a vacuum.
GroVE says the company is working with other cleaning companies to bring the technology to the marketplace.
