HOW TO CLEAN QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS ON A DAILY BASIS
Because of its rich natural color pattern, durability and ease of upkeep, quartz is highly sought after as a finish for kitchen countertops. Once installed, the material usually only requires a simple wipe down to keep it clean and maintain its elegant appearance. Knowing which cleaning methods and products not to use on your quartz countertop, however, is just as important as knowing which to use. Perform everyday cleaning tasks with a mild soap solution and a soft cloth or sponge, and steer clear of harsh scrubbers and cleaners that may mar the sealed surface of the quartz.
Scrape off hardened messes. You may occasionally have difficulty removing crusty, dried-on gunk with just soap and water. In these situations, you can chip away at the spot using a plastic scraper. It will also help to spray the gunk with warm water to soften it and make it easier to lift off with a little elbow grease. Use only flexible plastic scrapers (never metal) or nonabrasive sponges and be careful not to apply too much pressure. Doing so may create small scratches or abrasions that can worsen over time.
Soak paper towels in hot water and use them to cover messes that are spread out over a large area.
Break down stubborn residue using a vinegar solution. With time, food particles and mineral deposits from hard water can cause a film to develop on the countertops that a normal wipe-down may just smear around. Please visit the manufacturer of the quartz selection you have or reach out to us.
Vinegar is a useful natural cleaner, but its sour smell can be overpowering. Mixing in a few drops of lemon juice or your favorite essential oils will infuse the room with a pleasant scent.
