If you’re considering beautiful and durable quartz for your kitchen or bathroom, you could well be wondering how easy it is to keep it looking flawless.
After all, when thinking of quartz worktop designs, London homeowners, interior designers and construction firms need reassurance that it will stand up to everyday life. Especially in family homes, where kitchen and bathroom surfaces can take a bit of a hammering!
One of the reasons people specify quartz for countertops and work surfaces is that it’s a super tough construction material. One which has never gone out of favour for literally hundreds of years. It can stand up to considerable usage but still look stunning. In fact, with the right care it will last you a lifetime, without ever losing its unique and pleasing appearance.
Easy cleaning tips for quartz
As with any surface, try to clean spillages as soon as they happen. All you need is a damp cloth. For more stubborn stains or residue, apply a small amount of non-abrasive liquid cleaner. Don’t use one containing bleach!
Is the residue really dried on? You could use a blunt scrapper to remove the top layer but avoid using sharp or metal tools.
After cleaning, wipe the surface with a clean damp cloth, then pass a dry cloth or soft paper towel across it to remove any remaining moisture.
The best action to use for cleaning quartz surfaces is smooth, circular movements. This helps maintain that lustrous glow that makes quartz a statement feature in modern kitchens and bathrooms.
What to avoid
Just like other bathroom and kitchen construction materials, quartz does not respond well to oils, harsh chemicals, dyes and solvents. Protect your kitchen worktops and bathroom counters if you’re using any of those.
Also, never put hot pans or excessively heavy items on your quartz, no matter how resilient and tough it looks.
Lastly, if you have a window that shines direct sunlight onto your worktops or counters, invest in blinds to avoid long term, damaging exposure.
Quartz care starts from day one
Another step to ensuring that your quartz worktops and counters always look pristine, is making the right choice before building or upgrading your home.
