How to Care for Quartz Countertops and Other Quartz Countertop Maintenance

Quartz is a stone that is a non-porous, has high resistance to heat, stain, and scratches, and it is quite versatile. It is the most durable of all the stones for countertops, and it requires less maintenance than the other stones such as marble, onyx, and others due to its non-porous surface. The materials durability and low maintenance is preferred over other stones by business and homeowners.

Quartz countertops are very easy to maintain. It is only required to utilize a damp cloth with soap and warm water regularly to keep it from staining from everyday use. We highly recommended that you clean any spills or food stains immediately. Do not use any abrasive wipe or cleaner; otherwise it will scratch the surface and remove the gloss and shine. Although quartz countertops are resistant to heat, the use of trivets, heating pads, and such others is recommended to avoid a sudden direct change of temperature.

When cutting food, the use of a cutting board is a must to prevent scratches against the quartz’s surface. Do not use ammonia or bleach or any strong solvents it may dull the natural shine of the quartz. Using the flat side of a razor blade will help on removing tough dried foods from the quartz surface as well as a 000 mild steel wool, it is a trade secret that works effectively. Sealants are not necessary when choosing quartz countertops.

Following these simple steps will keep your countertops looking like new for a long time to come enhancing the elegance of your business or home.
