Quartz Worktops offer all the advantages of granite with some additional benefits. As a material, quartz is as strong and durable as granite. It will stand up to heavy use and repeated cleanings while continuing to look new. Another advantage of the material is its lack of absorbency. A worktop will no doubt have liquids spilled on it over time, but clean up will be easy. Unlike a wood surface, the liquid will not soak into the surface and cause warping and bubbling. Even if you use the surface every day, cracking and chipping are very rare. Most of the time, long-term guarantees are available as well to cover unexpected damages.

Taking Care of Your Quartz Surface

Composite stone surfaces blend modern sophistication and timeless luxury with unbeatable strength and durability. The everlasting finish requires only simple and routine care to maintain its good looks. To clean composite stone, we recommend using warm water and a mild detergent or quality spray and wipe type cleaner in order to enjoy enduring beauty and unmatched performance for years to come.

Minimal Maintenance

Virtually maintenance-free, composite stone is hard, non-porous surfaces require no sealing to renew the luster and are simple to clean. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is enough to keep your stone countertop 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.

Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills

If needed, apply a non-abrasive household cleaner (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.

Heat Tolerance

Composite stone 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, it 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. Also the PH level should be changed from 10 to 8 in the following section

Scratch Resistant

Composite 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, it can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that can damage its physical properties. Never clean your composite 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.
