QUARTZ



PREVENT COUNTERTOP DAMAGE


Place a trivet or hot pad below hot pans, crock pots and electric skillets

Although quartz can resist temperatures up to 300 °F (149 °C) (150 Celsius), it can be damaged by quick changes in temperature, known as "thermal shock."

Avoid using knives directly on the quartz surface.

Quartz countertops are highly scratch resistant, but they are not scratch-proof and can be damaged when forcefully hit with sharp objects. Use a cutting board placed on top of the countertop to avoid damage.

Avoid cleaning with highly acidic or alkaline cleaners, such

as nail polish remover, turpentine, oven cleaner, bleach, drain cleaners, dishwasher rinsing agents, trichloroethane or methylene chloride Clean immediately with a mild detergent and rinse, if they are spilled

Avoid pressure or force on your countertop, as it can chip the stone


CLEANING QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS


Clean routinely with a soft rag and mild detergent

Make sure this detergent is non-bleach and non-abrasive

Wipe up liquids as soon as possible

Quartz resists stains from fruit juices, tea and coffee for at least a short period of time. The amount of stain resistance may depend on the brand of quartz countertop you own.

Use a glass or surface cleaner and a non-abrasive

sponge to clean up dried or heavy stains. You can use sponges that are made for non-stick pans. For deep cleaning, spray a generous amount of the surface cleaner over your counters and leave for 10 minutes. Wipe away with a non-scratch sponge.

Scrape away gum, grease or paint with a

plastic putty knife

Use a degreasing cleanser to clean off grease.

Rinse immediately after cleaning

Remove ink or permanent markers with an

oil-based cleaner, like Goo Gone.
Rinse with warm water immediately after the stain is removed.
