Quartz countertops are not only a beautiful addition to any home but are also durable enough to stand up to daily wear and tear. It is vital that you know the proper way to clean your quartz countertops so that they retain their original luster and shine.
How to Properly Clean Quartz Countertops
The greatest attraction to quartz countertops is the minimal maintenance they require. Therefore, cleaning an engineered stone like quartz is simple and straightforward.
To quickly clean your quartz countertops, all you need is a little dish soap and warm water on a microfiber cloth. Use circular motions to wipe the counters with the soapy mixture. Use warm water to remove any residue. Finally, dry with a clean cloth.
For tougher stains, you will need more than mild soap and warm water. For this, you are going to need a surface cleaner and a non-abrasive sponge. Some homeowners have found using rubbing alcohol and water as a cleaner and stain remover is effective at removing buildup without the use of abrasive cleaners. This adds a little extra kick to your routine cleaning without damaging the surface of your quartz countertops.
How to Keep Your Countertops Clean
Just because quartz countertops are stain-resistant does not mean that you never have to wipe them or worry about discoloration. Make sure that any spills are always cleaned up immediately. If the spill contains an acidic base, you will want to move quickly to avoid discoloration of the quartz countertops.
