Engineered Quartz Care & Maintenance
Engineered quartz countertops are highly durable and do not require resealing to maintain their finish. Although highly scratch, heat, and stain resistant, improper care and usage can result in damage to your countertop. Simple routine care and maintenance will help prolong the life and finish of your quartz surfaces.
General Cleaning & Use
- For daily cleaning, use a mild detergent or soft soap diluted with warm water.
- Rinse thoroughly to remove residue.
- Clean counters after use.
- Wipe any spills immediately (including juices, wine, dyes, and cooking oils, etc.).
- Do not place hot pots and pans directly on the surface. We recommend using trivets or hot pads.
- Do not use sharp objects such as knives directly on the surface. Always use a cutting board.
For stains or dried spills, apply a non-abrasive cleaner and rinse with water. For adhered stains, scrape gently with a plastic putty knife, wipe away excess residue with a damp cloth. To remove extra-stubborn stains, use a no-scratch or delicate scrub pad.
Chemicals to Avoid
As with any other surface, engineered quartz countertops can be damaged from exposure to harsh chemicals and solvents. This includes, but is not limited to;
- Products containing Trichloroethane or Methylene chloride (such as paint removers).
- Aggressive cleaning agents (oven cleaners, dishwasher polishing agents).
- Products containing oils and powders.
- Acidic or abrasive chemicals (bleach, etc.).
- Should your surface accidentally come into contact with any harsh reagents, immediately rinse thoroughly with clean water.
