When you choose a quartz worktop in your kitchen, you are the proud owner of a unique product that has all the advantages of a beautiful and durable surface. A kitchen worktop is heavily used every day. To keep a quartz countertop in top condition from the start, we’ve put together a few easy maintenance methods: Daily handling of all kinds of food or even cooking can cause permanent damage to your surface if you don’t follow the rules below.
Use suitable cutting boards and always keep them clean and disinfected. It is best to use different cutting boards for different types of food. For daily care, washing-up liquid and warm water are sufficient to preserve the beauty and shine. After handling food, a special cleaner for quartz surfaces can be used for a more intensive cleaning. This not only preserves the shine, but also all stubborn dirt such as oil, wine or lemon stains can be removed. After cleaning, wipe with a clean, damp cloth.
Removal Of Stubborn Stains
Oil, wine, food or stains: Put a small amount on the stain and leave for two minutes. Gently rub the area with a scouring pad, wipe the area with a damp cloth and dry with a kitchen towel.
Limescale stains: Use a slightly damp scouring pad with an anti-limescale cleaner. Rub gently and leave on for a few minutes. Use a damp cloth to wipe the rest of the cleaner from the area and dry the area with a kitchen towel until it’s all gone.
For dried stains: Scrape them carefully with a blunt blade and then remove the residue with Q-Action and warm water.
The Optics Make The Poison
Attention feed thieves: Fingerprints are visible, especially on dark worktops. On top of that, quartz composite with a leather look requires more care. Due to the matt surface, these stones are more difficult to clean from stains. Stains are also more clearly visible on plain-colored surfaces.
The quartz mixture is also not squeamish when it comes to care. Even scouring milk and glass cleaner are allowed here. Nevertheless, you should keep your hands off of agents such as drain and oven cleaners. In addition, unlike with natural stone worktops, you do not have to be afraid of wine, vinegar as the closed surface of quartz composite does not absorb them. However, should stubborn stains occur, vigorous scrubbing is permitted at hardness level.
