Cleaning tips for your quartz countertop
Since quartz is not a delicate or sensitive material, keeping it maintained and clean is not so difficult. It is also scratch resistant, which gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about scratches or dents.
Nevertheless, maintenance is always essential. Here are some tips on how you can keep your quartz counter clean and shiny on a regular basis.
- Clean Your Counter: With warm and soapy water, take a sponge and scrub the surface of your counter gently. Make sure you never use an abrasive or rough material to scrub because it may not leave scratches, but it can always leave behind streaking in the polish and residue, which looks dirty.If there are certain areas of the surface that are extremely dirty, you can add a few drops of vinegar to the area, and leave a wet cloth on top of it for a few minutes. This will loosen up the stubbornness and you can then scrub it off easily with warm water. Make sure you never use oil based products on a quartz counter because this will discolor and dull the shininess of your counter.
- Rinse Your Quartz Counter: To rinse off your quartz countertop, you can use a spray bottle to spray the entire counter and get it all wet. Since the material is nonporous it will not absorb the water or any kind of residue left on it. Then take a sponge and scrub the surface and wipe it off with a clean and dry cloth. Check to make sure there are no streaks after it has dried off.
- Spray Window Cleaner On Your Quartz Counter: Window cleaners are effective and powerful substances used for cleaning. You can use a window cleaner spray to get rid of any grease or oiliness on your countertop. Make sure you don’t use too much, because less is more in this case. Then wipe the surface down with a dry and soft cloth or a paper towel. This will leave you with a clean and shiny looking quartz counter.
