Maintaining Quartz Countertops

Updated: 2017/10/24

The resins used in creating an engineered quartz countertop make it tough, stain-resistant, and nonporous. Quartz countertops also will not develop dips or depressions over time, which means that they will continue to look great for years to come. However, they may still require occasional cleaning to keep the surfaces glossy.


Avoiding Cuts and Scratches

While quartz countertops are extremely durable, it is always a good idea to take precaution when using knives and other sharp tools in the kitchen. Always chop and cut foods on a cutting board to safeguard the countertops. Using knives directly on the surface of quartz countertops may also dull the blades over time.


Cleaning the Countertops

Spilled liquids and dried debris are very easy to clean from a quartz countertop. Simply wipe the countertop down with a household vinegar-and-water solution to clean it. Alternatively, using a non-abrasive cleaning pad and a non-abrasive household cleaner, followed by a rinse with water, is a good way to scrub food and grime from quartz countertops. Any tough dried-on food can be gently scraped away with a plastic scraper. After cleaning, dry the countertops with a paper towel or a soft cloth.


Handling Stains and Chemicals

It is possible for strong chemicals, dyes, or solvents to permanently discolor the surface of quartz. To prevent permanent damage, wipe such liquids away as soon as possible, and then rinse the countertop with water. For persistent stains, products like adhesive removers can be used to scrub the surface of the countertop, followed by a rinse with water. Never use products with bleach, tarnish, oil soaps, or topical liquids on quartz countertops, as those can reduce their glossiness and overall quality.


Avoiding Heat Damage

Due to the low heat resistance of quartz countertops, never place hot pans or skillets directly onto the counters. Avoid damage from hot cooking utensils or heated appliances by using hot pads and trivets while cooking in the kitchen. If there are quartz countertops installed in the bathroom, remember never to place heated hair appliances like straighteners or curlers directly on the surface of the countertops.
