To remove any dirt or waste from the surface of QUARTZ (i.e. oil and grease, wine, vinegar, lemon, fizzy drinks, coffee…), just wipe with a damp cloth dipped in a neutral pH detergent.
Rinse with water and dry.
As examples, here are some solutions to common problems:
Grease stains: dilute a small amount of detergent in water and rub the stain with a cloth. Then rinse with water.
Loss of shine: use a gloss enhancer suitable for use on natural granite work surfaces.
Limescale stains: pour vinegar (or any weak diluted acid) onto the surface of the countertop and leave it to work for 1 minute. Rinse with water.
Silicone stains: remove using a sharp blade and a little solvent (acetone or ethanol).
Do not place quartz in locations subject to strong direct sunlight or expose it to UV lighting.
Avoid placing very hot objects on Quartz surfaces (pans from the fire or oven, deep fryers, etc.)
Do not use water-repellents or sealers to bring outshine.
Do not use stripping agents, caustic soda, degreasing products, or products with a pH over 10 or chloride-based products. When using bleach or solvents, rinse with water as soon as possible to avoid prolonged contact with the surface.
