QUARTZ & SOLID SURFACE COUNTERTOP CLEANING & PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

With proper care, your cabinetry should provide a lifetime of use and satisfaction. Routine cleaning, with the appropriate materials, will help prevent long-term damage to your cabinet door and finish.   

Basic Cleaning

Use a clean cloth dampened with warm water for general cleaning and daily spills. Use a soft cloth to promptly “blot” dry. The addition of a mild dish soap may be used to completely remove oil or grease. For dried spills or stubborn food particles, a glass cleaner and non-abrasive sponge can be used without damaging the countertop.
 

Preventative Maintenance

Quartz and Solid Surface countertops are susceptible to unwanted scratches and scuffs over time. Follow these best practices for years of a long-lasting, beautiful countertop.
 

Avoid Scratches & Scuffs

  • Use Cutting Boards -  Avoid the possibility of surface scratches by utilizing a cutting board rather than being tempted to cut directly on the countertop.
  • Use Trivets & Hot Pads - Build-up under pans can create a grit that can scratch and scuff the countertop surface in high-use areas over time. Also, extreme heat will damage your countertops.
  • Cleaning Sponges and Pads - Some kitchen sponges have an abrasive side that may scuff your countertops surface and are not recommended. Brillo and scouring pads are also NOT recommended.

 

Avoid Abrasive & Household Cleaners

  • Abrasive Cleaners - Abrasive cleaners have a gritty texture. These types of cleaners are the fastest way to scuffed and scratched countertops over time.
  • Household Cleaners - Some cleaning products, purchased from your local chain store,  can contain acids and alkaline that will degrade surface.
