Taking care of quartz countertops properly can prevent staining and help to maintain the same degree of shine for the years ahead.
However, there are so many products and opinions on the market today that it can be difficult to know how to clean your quartz.
You likely purchased quartz countertops for their durability and all-around beautiful surface.
This stone is even more popular than granite when it comes to kitchen design. Once you have them installed, you need to do what it takes to keep them super clean.
If you’re in a bind and need to get that tomato sauce off your stone, here are the steps you need to follow to clean your quartz countertops.
The best thing you can do is to take care of the countertops on a daily basis instead of allowing messes to pile up.
This can be as simple as wiping them down with a damp rag soaked in warm water.
You can use a non-abrasive cleaner or a mild dish detergent to keep your countertops looking great on a daily basis if you made a large mess.
Use a non-abrasive sponge with warm and soapy water to scrub along the length of your counter.
A mild dish detergent should be sufficient enough to clean and sanitize your counters.
You should always take care to remove any debris that could potentially scratch the surface of your quartz.
A few drops of vinegar should be sufficient to clean any stubborn areas of the counter that don’t want to release their dirt and grime.
When you’re finished wiping the counters down with the soapy mixture, it’s time to clean it all up.
You can either rinse out the sponge and fill it with clean water or use a spray bottle to spritz clean water on the quartz.
Wipe away the suds, then follow it up with a dry towel to prevent streaking on the natural luster of the stone.
Eliminate Oiliness and Grease
Do you have a hard time getting rid of grease stains and oily spots on the quartz?
Many homeowners find great success using window cleaner to eliminate these pesky areas quickly.
Spritz a small amount of the cleaner onto the affected area and immediately wipe it down with a paper towel or clean cloth.
What to Avoid
You never want to use anything abrasive on your quartz countertops.
These can scratch the finish or leave it looking dull. You don’t want to use anything too acidic or too alkaline that could ruin the finish.
Avoiding heat is another great way to prevent causing damage to the surface of your quartz.
