Quartz countertops are one of the most durable countertop options on the market right now. However, even with their amazing durability, you still need to prioritize caring for and maintaining your quartz countertop.
Here are some of our best tips to help keep your quartz countertops looking as good as new:
Make Sure You’re Wiping Them Down Regularly
Quartz is a great countertop option to use in your kitchen because it is stain resistant. However, that doesn’t mean that you should skimp out on cleaning it. Quartz isn’t dirt or dustproof, so if you want to maintain the stone’s natural shine, you will need to clean it regularly with a damp washcloth and dry it with a microfiber cloth.
Sometimes it can be difficult to detect stains on your quartz countertop, so make sure you’re carefully inspecting the surface before each clean.
Be Careful When You’re Using Cleaners
Always be cautious with the types of cleaners you use on your countertops. The resins on quartz can be easily damaged and weakened when exposed to harsh cleaners. There are special cleaners that are made for quartz that you should be using to clean your countertop. However, still clean with caution and test the cleaner on your countertop area before applying it to the entire surface.
Don’t Cut on Top of Your Quartz Countertop
Although quartz is heat and scratch resistant, you should never use your countertop as a cutting board. If a knife is sharp enough, it can still dull and scratch the surface. Always make sure you have a good cutting board when you’re preparing food.
Never Ignore Spills On Your Countertop
If you see a spill on your granite countertop, never leave it sitting for someone else to clean up. Liquids such as wine, tea, vinegar, or coffee can damage even the toughest countertops. If you see a spill take a microfiber cloth and gently dab the spill until there is nothing left.
