Quartz Care & Maintenance

Quartz Surfaces – Regardless of “Brand” are non-porous and resistant to stains and penetration of spills into deeper layers of the surface.

Just use water, dish soap, and paper towel or a damp sponge to absorb any spills after food preparation.  If needed, use any non-abrasive cleaner such as Formula 409, Lysol, Windex, and Fantastic to wipe away any excess.  Be sure to dry the area thoroughly with a clean cloth.

  • Leave any of the above cleaners to sit on the affected area for a few minutes;
  • Soak the affected area with pads of paper towels for 5 to 10 minutes;
  • Scrub the area gently with a non-scratch pad such as Scotch Brite pad in circular movement;
  • Rinse with clean water thoroughly;
  • Dry thoroughly.
For even tougher spots, use Soft Scrub Liquid Gel (with or without bleach).  Leave the gel to sit on the affected area for a longer time and follow the same steps above.   If needed, apply Windex streak free as the final step to clean any gel residue.

REMOVING ADHERED MATERIALS(gums, nail polish, paint, etc.)
  • Scrape the surface with a plastic putty knife or a razor. Quartz Surfaces are very hard and will not  
    be harmed by razor edges. 
  • Rinse with clean water thoroughly;
  • Dry thoroughly.
  • Any gray marks left by the blade can be removed with Soft Scrub Liquid Gel.
  • If necessary, use Windex streak free to clean any gel residue.

  • Do not apply any sealer.  Quartz does not need to be sealed.
  • Do not use abrasive scrubs. Always use non-scratch pads such as Scotch Bride pad.
  • Do not use harsh chemicals, or abrasive oven and plumbing cleaners (Drano, Easy OFF, and Liquid Plumber).  These chemicals will dull the surface finish. 
  • Do not use products containing oils or powders because they leave residue.
  • Do not use knives directly on the quartz surface.  Always use a cutting board.
  • Do not place hot pots, pans, or electric skillet directly on the quartz surface.  Always use trivets or hot pads.  Extreme heat may cause thermal shock and crack the surface in long term.
  • Minimize direct sun exposure to Quartz.  Long-term exposure to direct sunlight may discolor surface finish.
  • Quartz is only for interior applications.

Quartz is made to be a carefree surface, but as with any product, excessive abuse and undue harm can damage Quartz finish.  With a little amount of dedication and care, your surfaces will last for years to come.
