Cleaning Quartz Countertops
Virtually maintenance-free, quartz’s hard, non-porous surfaces require no sealing to renew its luster and are simple to clean. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is enough to keep your surfaces looking like new. If necessary, use a non-abrasive soft soap along with a non-scratch or delicate scrub pad. Afterwards, thoroughly rinse with clean water to remove residue.
Removing Stains from Quartz
If you happen to acquire a stain on your quartz, apply a non-abrasive household cleaner and rinse to remove residue. For extra-stubborn stains, a no-scratch pad is recommended along with the non-abrasive cleaner can be used.
- Never use products that contain Trichloroethane or Methylene chloride, such as paint removers or strippers
- Avoid the use of highly aggressive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher polishing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels (pH 8.5 or higher).
- Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off thoroughly. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with clean water to neutralize the effect.
It’s important to be aware that like any other surface, quartz can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that can damage its physical properties. Please do not hesitate to call us if you can’t remove a stain. We are more than happy to help!
Quartz is more heat resistant than other stone surfaces including most granite. However, like all stone material, it can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes. Therefore, we suggest that hot pots and pans never be directly placed on the surface. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be place on the surface under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots, or roaster ovens.
