Cleaning Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops have a lot of advantages. They’re lighter than granite and come in just as many unique colors and patterns, and are so easy to clean! Here are some tips for cleaning your beautiful quartz countertops.

First, as with any countertop you should clean up spills immediately. Quartz resists staining, but stains will still set if given time! Glass cleaner and a nonabrasive sponge will take care of many heavier spills. Tricky stains like permanent marker or cooking grease will need special attention, but in general you should be able to wipe up spills with no problems.

For everyday cleaning, either gentle wipes or a mild solution of soap and water applied with a nonabrasive sponge or cloth will do just fine. Quartz resists bacteria, but if deeper cleaning is called for, spray a gentle, nonabrasive surface cleaner on your countertops and let sit for up to ten minutes before wiping away. egg broken on counter

When cleaning your quartz countertops, there are definitely some things you want to avoid! Never use scouring pads or abrasive cleaners, as they can scratch or dull the surface of your beautiful counters. Harsh chemical cleaners that are either very acidic or very alkaline will also cause damage. If bleach or oven cleaner ever comes in contact with your quartz, rinse it immediately and thoroughly with plenty of water! For general maintenance and to keep your countertops looking beautiful, also avoid exposure to high heat, and never cut anything without a cutting board.
