Quartz is created through a manufacturing process that mixes approximately 95 percent ground natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins. The result is a super-hard, low-maintenance, natural stone-look sheet available in a dazzling array of colours.

You should always use a heat-resistant mat, coaster or stand with hot items such as hot pots and pans directly from the oven.

As a non-porous surface, quartz countertops will not absorb liquids. Some highly acidic liquids such as citrus fruit or wine can react to the resin in quartz if the liquid is left for long periods of time. It is best practice to ensure to wipe your quartz surface after spills to ensure the pristine condition of your countertop.

What is the best cleaner for quartz?

It’s easy to clean quartz surfaces with a simple mild soapy water or a detergent and water solution. You should use a soft sponge or cloth to wipe your solid surfaces down and avoid using anything that is abrasive or has hard bristles. There are also many mild and quartz safe kitchen sprays.

Quartz Worktops Maintenance


Quartz Worktops Care

Quartz kitchen worktops are durable and a long-lasting option that are loved for their easy maintenance quality. There are simple and easy habits you can adopt to ensure your worktop remains in pristine condition and has a long life span.

You should resist cutting directly onto your quartz stone worktops and always use a chopping board. This good habit will protect not only your quartz countertop, but it will protect your knives from being damaged.

If you are planning to use a quartz worktop in an outside area, you should make sure it is undercover and protected from the sun as the sun can damage the worktop. The sun can damage quartz stone worktops, unlike granite, sintered stone or ceramic which are recommended for outdoor use. If your space is not undercover, you may want to consider using a sintered stone, granite or ceramic worktop instead.

It’s advisable to never put hot pans, trays or pots directly onto your quartz stone worktop. If it is hotter than 65 degrees Celsius or 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you should ensure you use heat safe equipment like stands or mats. 

Quartz is stain resistant, however it is always recommended to clean up any spills promptly. You can use a simple water and soap solution or detergent and water, wiped down with a soft cloth or sponge. There are also quartz safe mild kitchen sprays that can be used.

These easy habits will ensure your new worktops remain in their beautiful condition for many years to come.
