Quartz countertops are rapidly becoming one of the most popular materials for kitchens because they are durable and beautiful. They are also incredibly easy to maintain if you know what to do. These four simple tips can help you keep your quartz countertops looking great for years to come.
Avoid Putting Heated Objects on the Surface
While quartz is heat resistant, it cannot tolerate extreme temperature changes. Avoid cracking your quartz by using pads or trivets before placing any hot pots or pans directly on the surface.
Do Not Use Harsh Chemicals
Abrasive substances and high-alkaline chemicals are not friendly to quartz. Keep them away from your countertops to prevent any damage.
Protect Its Surface by Using Cutting Boards
Resisting scratches does not mean scratch or chip-free. Be sure to use a cutting board or other material to protect your counter as well as the sharpness of your blade.
Staining May Occur If Used Improperly
Quartz does not stain easily, but permanent markers, dyes, and certain chemicals can do lasting damage to countertops. Use any staining items away from your quartz surfaces, and if you do find any ink or other stains, clean them as soon as you can with a mild cleaner.
For daily cleaning, you only need a soft cloth and water or a mild soap to wipe down your quartz countertops. Contact Natural Stoneworks, LLC for more information on taking care of quartz or other natural stone materials.
