If you’ve recently bought a quartz countertop for your bathroom or kitchen, congratulations! As a result, you’ll love the elegance this hardwearing stone can lend your home.
In terms of looking after your worktops, and keeping them looking their best, so here are the five top things NOT to do:
Don’t throw away the manufacturer’s warranty
Don’t use common household cleaners
Don’t use harsh scouring pads
Don’t use sharp metal objects in cleaning
Don’t seal your quartz countertops
Quartz counters frequently come with a manufacturer’s warranty. You should hang on to this and make sure you keep it somewhere safe. That will help ensure a long life and protection for your investment in the unlikely event of anything going wrong.
Some of the chemicals in regular cleaning products may loosen the resins, stone pieces and polymers used to make quartz slabs. Use something that’s specially formulated to be used on quartz.
While quartz is a durable material, and you may feel strong scouring pads would do a good job on removing tough stains, the finish may become scratched or dull. Use a soft nylon brush to shift stubborn marks.
We’re sure you wouldn’t anyway, but don’t use a metal scraper to remove caked-on spillages or stains. Stick to plastic items instead. Metal could seriously damage the natural stone surface.
Our customers often asked about sealing their countertops. Unless your worktops are a textured or honed quartz surface, they don’t need to be sealed, unlike some other natural stones. The factory finish should last for years and years if you clean the surface sensibly and often.
