When we talk about beautiful and efficient kitchen features, many desire having a quartz worktop. Picture this: you finally have your own kitchen and the focal point is your gold quartz worktop with emerald cupboards and a built-in wine chiller. Looks divine, doesn’t it? Quartz worktops are excellent additions to your kitchen because they are incredibly durable and instantly boost your room’s visual appeal.
Now that you have a quartz worktop, you probably think your work here is done. However, to keep it looking new and sparkly, make sure you’re maintaining it the right way. Even if quartz is a hard-wearing stone, like any surface, it is still prone to staining. There are different methods, tips and steps you should take to clean your worktop adequately, and this article will help you with that!
How do I keep my quartz worktop clean?
Worktop damage often occurs when tiny blunders accumulate. Such mistakes are forgetting to clean your countertop from dust and crumbs, not wiping stains or using the wrong cleaners. The best way to prevent damaging your quartz worktop is by making sure you regularly clean its surface with the right products and tools right after use.
By keeping your worktop tidy and clean as you go, you’ll prevent stains and damages that liquids and foreign matter can do to your quartz worktops.
What tools do I need when cleaning my worktop?
The tools you use when performing maintenance and cleaning are incredibly important. When cleaning your quartz worktop, make sure to stay away from strong chemicals such as caustic sodas and paint strippers. This can ultimately damage the surface and shine of your worktop.
Additionally, you want to ensure that you use a microfibre cloth when wiping down the surface of your countertop. This type of cloth is absorbent and won’t leave cloth marks on your counter. Choosing the right tools and products for cleaning your worktop will ensure that it will always look brand-new and ready to use.
Are quartz worktops prone to staining?
Luckily, quartz worktops are more resistant to staining; however, they aren’t entirely impervious. Although quartz worktops are non-porous and usually won’t absorb stains, leaving stains on their surface can still leave marks and dull their aesthetics.
Should you spill some liquid on your worktop, make sure you wipe the area right away and clean it with mild soap to avoid the matter from sticking to its surface.
I have bleach! Should I use this to clean my worktop?
No. As mentioned earlier, when cleaning your quartz countertop, you should stay away from strong and harmful chemicals. Bleach can strip off the layer of film that protects your quartz worktop from external factors that can damage it.
If you want to use solutions to clean your countertop, water and mild soap are great options. However, if you want a more robust solution, a kitchen worktop consultant can provide you with quartz cleaning products that you can use to clean your counter safely.
Maintaining your quartz worktop by cleaning it regularly will keep your kitchen looking new and impressive. By following these tips, you’ll ensure that your kitchen worktop will always be an attractive feature of your kitchen, and cooking and preparing meals won’t feel like such a chore.
