Virtually easy to clean, Classic Quartz Stone’s hard, non-porous surfaces require no sealing to renew the lustre and are simple to clean. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is enough to keep your Classic Quartz Stone slab looking like new. If necessary, use a non-abrasive soft soap along with a non-scratch or delicate scrub pad. Afterwards, thoroughly rinse with clean water to remove residue.
Virtually Maintenance Free
Quartz is a durable, resilient, non-porous, naturally anti-bacterial surface that is maintenance free.
Taking Care of Your Quartz Slabs
To clean Quartz slabs, we recommend using warm water and a mild detergent or quality spray and wipe type cleaner such as Dettol Anti-Bacterial Surface Cleaner or Cillit Bang Power Cleaner, in order to enjoy enduring beauty and unmatched performance for years to come.
Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills
If needed, apply a non-abrasive household cleaners (a non-abrasive cleaner will not dull the surface shine) and rinse to remove residue. To remove adhered material such as food, gum, nail polish or even dried paint, first scrape away excess material with a plastic putty knife and then use a damp cloth to remove any marks or residual dirt. For extra-stubborn stains, a no-scratch Scotch-Brite® pad or similar is recommended along with a non-abrasive cleaner.
Quartz is more heat resistant than other stone surfaces including most granite, marble and limestone; and is not affected by temperatures lower than 150°C (300°F). However, like all stone material, quartz can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes. Therefore, we suggest that hot pots and pans never be directly placed on the surface. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be placed on the surface under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots, or roaster ovens.
The Quartz Stone is a highly scratch resistant surface; however avoid abuse of the surface by refraining from using sharp objects such as sharp knives or screw drivers directly onto the surface.
Cleaning Agents to Avoid
It’s important to be aware that like any other surface, Classic Quartz Stone can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that can damage its physical properties. Never clean your Classic Quartz Stone surface with products that contain
Trichlorethane or Methylene chloride, such as paint removers or strippers. Avoid the use of highly aggressive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher polishing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels (pH 8.5 or higher). Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off thoroughly. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with clean water to neutralize the effect.
