Maintenance - Quartz

Maintenance:Quartz Maintenance

  • Quartz surfaces are virtually maintenance free.  There’s no sealing, buffing, polishing or reconditioning required.
  • Routine cleaning involves little more than soapy water or a mild household cleaner. 
  • Because it is non-porous, quartz polished surfaces do not need to be sealed as do other stones to prevent staining.  Unlike granite, quartz surfacing is a nearly indestructible material. It is resistant to stains caused by wine, fruit juices, liquid food coloring, tea, nail polish and remover, and felt-tip markers.
  • Its non-porous nature is also extremely hygienic, making it a food-safe choice.
  • Though the quartz surface can briefly tolerate moderate temperatures for a brief time, it can be damaged by high heat and prolonged exposure to heat. Use a hot pad or trivet when placing a hot pan on it.
  • To prolong the life of your knives, always use a cutting board.  Natural quartz is one of the hardest minerals found in nature.  That same hardness may dull the sharpness of most knives.
  • Continuous long-term exposure to direct sunlight may result in slight discoloration of natural quartz surfaces.
  • No surface is indestructible, though. As with any other stone or surface material, strong chemicals and solvents, oven cleaners and floor strippers will damage the surface.
