One of the biggest advantages of quartz is it’s a low-maintenance material to take care of. We suggest avoiding having quartz countertops constructed outside or in areas where they’ll be exposed to direct sunlight because this can cause quartz to fade. Unlike granite and marble, there is no need to have quartz sealed or re-sealed on a regular basis.
How to Clean Quartz Countertops
Cleaning quartz countertops is quick and easy. Start by wiping off all the crumbs and larger debris from your counter with a dry rag or paper towel so you don’t accidentally scratch the surface when you’re cleaning. Then use a clean, soft cloth or sponge with a mild dish-soap diluted in warm water.
Quartz is resistant to surface staining from cooking oils, wine, coffee, etc, and in most cases, a mild dish-soap and water is enough to keep Quartz looking clean.
Afterwards, thoroughly rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel to prevent spotting. For best results, remove liquid spills and dried foods as soon as possible.
To clean a stubborn spill we recommend you scrape away any residue with a plastic putty knife, then use a mild household cleaner, such as Formula 409 Glass & Surface Cleaner®, Fantastik, Bar Keeper’s Friend, or Greased Lightning. Soak the area for up to 10 minutes with one of these cleaners and vigorously wipe away with a non-scratch Scotch Brite pad.
