What’s The Best Way To Clean Quartz Worktops?

Quartz worktops are the ultimate investment in any home. Not only do they look great but they’re super low maintenance too. With that said, they aren’t completely maintenance free. You do of course need to keep them clean and looking their best. A quartz worktop is one of those additions that everyone wants. When you finally get one of your own, looking after it is paramount.

4. The Top Three Tips On How To Clean Quartz Tops

While quartz is indeed a hardwearing, man-made stone, if left to its own devices, the usual qualities associated with it can diminish. This means the usual stain-resistant property may start to slide however if cleaned correctly, it shouldn’t be a problem. We find a lot of customers however, are surprised to hear that there are “correct ways to clean quartz worktops”. Let’s take a closer look at the best way to clean them or the best ‘quartz worktop maintenance’ as we like to call it.

4. Clean Quartz Regularly

Quartz worktops are one of the lowest maintenance on the market but you still need to pay it a little attention. Just as any surface in your house needs cleaning, so too will a quartz worktop. When we say clean regularly, we mean exactly that. A daily wipe with a damp cloth is essential, as too is a cloth over spillages as soon as the spillage occurs. In fact, when it comes to spillages, it’s crucial they’re wiped up straight away. The longer the substance is left on the quartz, the more damage it’s likely to do. Keeping the surface crumb free, will also prevent any future scratches from abrasive substances being wiped across the surface.

4. The Right Tool For The Right Job

While we know the majority would realise cleaning their worktop with a scouring pad is a bad idea, there are always the minority who think otherwise. That being said, you still need to ensure the cloth you’re choosing to use isn’t abrasive in any way. Whether it’s a case of being covered in tough toast crumbs or being made from a tough material, ensure it’s clean and super soft before it makes contact with your worktop. Microfibre cloths are by far the best option. Not only are they soft but they’re incredibly absorbent too. They’re also great for their ability to clean without leaving watermarks. This will give your quartz worktop that much loved shine.

4. Use The Correct Quartz Cleaning Products

As durable as your quartz worktop may be, we strongly advise against using harsh chemicals on it; this means products such as bleach or caustic soda. If left on the worktop surface for too long, you could see the sealant actually becoming affected. Many people find simply using water works well enough, along with non-toxic cleaning substances.
