How To Look After Quartz Countertop
While quartz is a hardwearing, man-made stone if it is poorly looked after then the usual qualities associated with it can diminish. This means that the surface will be more prone to stains and watermarks. We always recommend our customers follow our guidance on how to clean quartz worktops.
There are some basics to quartz worktop maintenance. Quartz worktops are one of the lowest maintenance but a daily wipe with a damp cloth is essential. You should also deal with spillages as soon as they happen to avoid pools of water standing on the surface. The longer the substance is left on the quartz, the more damage it’s likely to do. Giving your worktops a wipe is a good practice that will help keep the surface looking better for a much greater amount of time.
Use Gentle Products To Clean Your Quartz Worktop
Cleaning your worktop with a scouring pad is a bad idea. You still need to ensure the cloth you’re choosing to use isn’t abrasive in any way. Microfibre cloths are by far the best option. Not only are they soft but they’re incredibly absorbent too.
As durable as your quartz worktops are, we strongly advise against using harsh chemicals on it; this means products such as bleach, citrus or caustic soda. These sorts of harsh cleaning products will affect the seal of the worktop. We recommend using warm soapy water, even just water works well enough. If you want to keep your kitchen free of bacteria then try using a weak alcohol cleaner.
