Care and Maintenance
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO?
Normally, taking of a fresh mess with water, mild dishwashing detergent and a soft cloth to absorb any spills after food preparation.
For dried spills or heavy stains, your best bet is a glass or surface cleaner, a nonabrasive sponge (sponges designed for nonstick pans are safe and effective), and a little elbow grease. Keep a plastic putty knife handy to gently scrape off gum, food, nail polish, paint, or other messes that harden as they dry.
Remove cooking grease.
You can use the kitchen degreaser loosens and removes the grease from the quartz countertop when the counter took a beating.
Erase permanent markers.
Daily wiping can satisfy your countertop’s basic daily maintenance requirements, but we also recommend an overall deeper general cleaning at regular intervals. Spraying a generous amount of a nonabrasive surface cleaner over your countertop and let it sit for 10 minutes. Wipe away with a non-scratch sponge.
WHAT YOU MUSTN'T DO?
Abrasives and Acid or Alkaline Cleaners
Never using abrasive cleansers and avoid scouring pads, which can dull the surface. If you need a gentle cleanser with a little more oomph to remove surface stains, make sure it is specifically designed for use on quartz.
Though the material is heat-resistant and scorch-resistant, the resin used in manufacturing quartz countertops is a plastic and therefore prone to melting in heat above 300 degrees Fahrenheit. A sudden change in temperature or prolonged exposure to heat from a pan left on the countertop may even cause the quartz to crack.
Slicing or Dicing Without a Cutting Board
Quartz is a hard surface, but not hard enough to withstand the effects of sharp objects like knives. So making sure to do it on a cutting board to avoid ugly scratches on your quartz countertops.
