Quartz countertops are a hot commodity due to their extremely durable nature and their natural beauty. But how does one properly care this highly sought after stone? Here are some tricks of the trade.
More and more people are installing quartz countertops into their kitchens and this trend has no plans of slowing down. Quartz, unlike granite, has no need for re-sealing. These low-maintenance rocks are scratch-resistant, bacteria resistant, and best of all, they are a cinch to clean.
Don’t get too excited, however. These easy to clean stones are not totally stain-proof. In fact, a wine spill could almost certainly cause permanent damage if not cleaned immediately. Quartz is an investment that must be looked after.
Here are some common household products that can be used to maintain your quartz countertops:
- Warm water
- Mild dish soap
- Soft cleaning cloth
- Nonabrasive sponge
- Degreasing cleaner
- Plastic putty knife
- Glass cleaner
You might think that rubbing alcohol would cause damage to quartz countertops but if used with mild dish soap and warm water, they could help clean the more tougher stains.
If shine is what you are pursuing, you can do so with a few more common household products. Take a soft cloth, add warm water and mild dish soap and use this to rise and dry. When it has fully dried, wipe it down with a mild glass cleaner solution.
The results from these tips will offer a sleek and shiny look to your investment.
