Quartz Care and Maintenance

Routine Care

Quartz requires very little maintenance. Simply wipe your Quartz surface with soap and warm water on a regular basis to maintain its beauty and shine for years to come.

Difficult Spills

To remove difficult spills, wipe the surface with warm water and soap. If needed, apply a common household cleaner. For stains that harden as they dry, such as food and gum, remove by gently scraping off of surface (using a blade or putty remover), and then clean using warm water and soap.

Extreme Heat Protection

Quartz is extremely resistant to heat, and can withstand moderately high temperatures for brief periods of time without being damaged. Although Quartz is more heat resistant than any other stone surface, all stone can be damaged by sudden and extreme temperature changes, especially near the edges. For this reason, we recommend using a trivet or a hot pad to protect your quartz surface from extreme heat.

Chemicals to Avoid

Avoid exposing your quartz or other quartz surface to strong chemicals and solvents. Items to avoid include: nail polish remover, permanent markers or inks, oil soaps, and furniture cleaners or paint strippers that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride. Also avoid exposing your quartz surface to chemicals with high alkaline/PH levels, such as oven cleaners.

General Precautions

Although quartz is extremely scratch and heat resistant, we recommend protecting your quartz surface by using a hot pad or trivet for extreme heat protection, and by using a cutting board in order to avoid damage to your knives.
