However, in order to maintain the beauty and aesthetics of quartz surface for many years, it is necessary to take care of their proper care and maintenance. Here is how to care for quartz surface.

How to care for a quartz surface kitchen worktop?

Quartz surface is a material which is used for interior projects. It is most commonly applied in kitchens, due to its good adaptation to demanding areas where moisture is prevalent, dirt is often generated and surfaces come into direct contact with food. Among the most popular products made of quartz surface are kitchen worktops. They are undoubtedly durable, but it is proper care that keeps them beautiful and functional for a long time. Anyone who decides to have a quartz surface kitchen worktop in their home should keep in mind a few important aspects regarding its use. 

Cleaning and treatment

Quartz surface shows resistance to stains, but the dirt created should never be left on the surface longer than necessary. Therefore, the first very important rule is the regular care of the surface made of quartz. The worktop should be cleaned after every use and dirt should be removed as soon as it appears. This will avoid unnecessary discolouration on the slab.

For the daily care of a quartz surface worktop, it is recommended to use non-abrasive cleaning agents that do not damage the structure of the material and have a neutral pH (e.g. washing up liquid, soft cloth, soft sponge). Strong detergents that could adversely affect the appearance of the stone should be avoided. Substances that are particularly dangerous for quartz surfaces include hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid or sodium and potassium hydroxide.

Proper products for stains and dirt

For more persistent stains, the quartz surface worktop should be washed with specialised cleaners. It is advisable to apply the mixture directly to the stain and then rub gently with a soft sponge. After cleaning, the surface should be rinsed thoroughly with water. It is always a good idea to use specialised substances in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and not to keep them on the surface longer than necessary. It is a good idea to test the product on a small piece of stone slab before applying it.

The use of quartz surfaces

It is also worth taking care of the proper use of a quartz surface kitchen worktop. To prolong its life and maintain its aesthetic appearance, use kitchen tools - such as hot pads or cutting boards. This will help protect the surface from discolouration and scratches. Special attention should also be paid to the edges of the worktop and not to hit them with heavy objects, which could lead to cracking or chipping of the stone slab.

Impregnation of surfaces made of quartz

In addition to cleaning with mild detergents, it is also worth taking care of the maintenance of the quartz surfaces. A specialised impregnator will provide additional protection against stains and scratches, while at the same time making it easier to keep the worktop clean. At the same time, the impregnator will highlight and protect the colour of the stone slabs from fading.

Summary: Quartz surface - how to clean and care for products made of this stone?

  1. Moisture, piles, and dirt should be removed from the surface of the kitchen worktop as soon as possible.
