How to keep your quartz countertops sparkling clean
There is a beauty and luster inherent to quartz countertop, Truly, nothing is as rich and inviting in a kitchen as genuine stone countertops. But, although they are incredibly durable and stand up well to a lifetime of use, some homeowners may not know how to best care for them. After all, aquartz countertop in a kitchen is a design element that comes with a fair price tag. You’ll want them to look as beautiful today as the day they were installed, right?
The problem most homeowners face with cleaning and polishing their stone countertops is the unfortunate fact that common household cleaners can be terrifically harmful to the surfaces of quartz.
How to keep your quartz countertops sparkling clean on a daily basis:
Wipe down with a rag and warm water to remove any crumbs or food residue
Spray with window cleaner and wipe with paper towels or microfiber cloth
That’s it! I do this each night after I wash the dishes and it takes no more than a minute or two. I keep some window cleaner under the sink for this specific purpose.
Quartz is incredibly resilient so you don’t have to baby it, and you can even use some mild bleach cleaners every once in awhile if you so choose to really kill any bacteria. Just make sure you don’t use any abrasive sponges or cleaners; it could dull the polished surface of your quartz countertops.
Maintaining quartz and handing spills
Your quartz countertops are heat resistant, but again, not heat proof. To maintain their beauty, never place hot items directly on the surface. Also, do not place heat-generating appliances directly on the surface; such as crock-pots or indoor grills. Instead, use a trivet or potholder to keep heat from affecting your countertop’s shine. Excessive heat can lead to thermal shock; which causes deep cracks in the surface of your quartz.
