Quartz countertops continue to gain popularity with homeowners because of their style, function, and low maintenance. In order to keep your gorgeous quartz countertops looking new for years to come, follow these simple tips and tricks listed below.
Clean Your Quartz Countertops Daily
Clean your countertops daily with mild soap and water with a warm damp cloth. Use a circular motion when you are cleaning your countertops to make sure you are not leaving anything behind. Use a clean damp cloth to rinse any soap left on your countertops. If you have any dried messes that won’t come off easily, leave a damp towel soaking on the dirty spot until it loosens. Some mild household cleansers are also safe to use on quartz, such as Bon Ami and Barkeeper’s Friend. You can also use an ammonia-free glass cleaner.
Protect Your Countertops From Damage
Using items such as coasters, cutting boards, trays, and hot pads will protect your quartz countertops from damage. Coasters prevent water rings or stains forming from cups or mugs. While cutting boards will prevent scratches from knives or other sharp objects. Quartz countertops are susceptible to damage from heat. Using hot pads provides extra protection to keep the resin from warping.
Remove Spills Quickly
Accidents will happen where something spills on the countertops. There is no avoiding it and there is no way of preventing it from happening all of the time. That is why cleaning up spills when they happen as quickly as possible is the best option to keep your quartz countertops safe. The faster a spill can be removed, the chances of forming a stain significantly decrease. Quartz is stain-resistant, but not stain-proof. Fortunately, it is possible to remove most stains from quartz countertops. Using the ammonia free glass cleaner is a great place to start. A mixture of white vinegar and water is a popular household cleaner to rid of tough stains. Prepare the mixture with this easy formula: equal parts water and vinegar. Let the solution to sit on the stain before wiping with a damp cloth.
Quartz countertops offer both beauty and durability for your kitchens and bathrooms. Using these simple care and cleaning tips will help your quartz countertops stay looking fresh and new for many years to come!
