Caring For Quartz

Caring For Quartz

Our quartz kitchen tops feature high scratch resistance, low water absorption and high chemical resistance. Kitchen substances of everyday use will not leave surface stains. Our polished finish is exceptionally stain resistant and does not retain dirt, making it easy to keep clean.

Easy Cleaning

Our quartz does not hold stains nor halos. For daily use, a damp cloth and a mild detergent is all that’s needed to maintain its beauty. Always thoroughly rinse with water and a soft cloth or paper towel. You can also use products specifically designed for natural stone surfaces.

Scratches Resistant

Our Quartz features high scratch resistance and is very durable. However, no surface is indestructible. To preserve surface aesthetics from alterations, we recommend protecting it with a cutting board when using knives or sharp objects.

Acid and Liquid Resistant

Our polished quartz surfaces are nonporous and highly resistant to liquids and acids such as coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, and makeup. Every-day cooking substances does not affect our polished surfaces.

Heat Resistant

Our quartz is tested to withstand high temperatures for occasional and short contact with hot food or liquids. However, it is not heat proof. We recommend the use of trivets or other heat resistant pads and to avoid direct contact with heat sources such as saucepans, frying pans, or deep-fat fryers, pots, irons and open flame.

Do’s and Don’ts

Avoid contact with:

1. Alkaline chemicals (acetone, caustic soda, etc.)
2. Pure ammonia or ammonia-based cleaners
3. Solvents in general (eg. nail polish removers or solvents for paints containing trichlorethylene and methylene chloride)
4. Brighteners, oily soaps, inks and permanent markers
5. Steel wool pads, abrasive and micro-abrasive cleaners such as creams or powders;
6. Strong detergents such as those for cleaning the oven
7. Wax polishes or products containing wax that could cause a loss of lustre.

In case of contact with any of the above, it is recommended to immediately rinse thoroughly with water.
