The addition of quartz in any kitchen is a very elegant way of upgrading its look and feel. Quartz is a beautifully engineered stone, which demands lesser care and maintenance. If you want to have your quartz countertops looking pristine and new always, you need to set up a cleaning routine for it. 

Here we are listing some easy yet effective ways of managing and maintaining your quartz slabs and help them last a lifetime.

Basic cleaning tips

Caring for quartz countertops is all about lesser maintenance than what other natural stones need. Although they need very low care and maintenance, one needs to clean it regularly.

  • Use a soft towel and a solution of warm water and mild dish soap to wipe the countertops. Try wiping off the dust regularly and in case of any spills, wipe if off right away. You can also use glass cleaners to wipe the slabs off or a mixture of vinegar and water to remove the stains.
  • Scarp of any dry spills immediately. Use a putty knife for any tough or dried buildup on the surface. After scraping, use a dry cloth and soap mixture to wipe of the remaining debris.
  • Degrease the surface with any common household degreaser. Use any degreasing spray or gel to remove the greasy buildup, as long as it is safe to use on the quartz surface. Do not use bleach or other harsh chemicals that have the tendency of damaging the stone.

Maintenance tips

  • Always use a cutting board. This will protect your quartz from daily dents and scratches from the sharp knives. Do not put food directly on counter to cut them.
  • Always use hot pads. It is not suggested to place hot pans and appliances directly on the natural stone slabs, no matter how durable or heat-resistant they are. Place them on a hot pad or a trivet. This will keep the resin safe from turning white under the extreme heat. A buffer is a must when using quartz countertops.
  • Clean up the spills as quickly as possible. Quartz can resist stains for some time, but not long enough. It can stain the area if it is left unattended for too long. If you can wipe off the spills as soon as possible, you can maintain its appearance forever.
