Care & Maintenance

Help and advise for your worktop maintenance

Taking Care of Your Quartz Slab

Quartz is easy to clean and look after with worktop maintenance. In most cases with soap and water or a mild detergent will keep your quartz worktops looking brand new. We recommend using warm water and a mild detergent or quality spray, such as “Dettol Anti-Bacterial Surface Cleaner” or “CIF Cleaner” [white natural].

For the leather finish “VIM” can also be used, in order to enjoy enduring beauty and unmatched performance for years to come. If necessary, use a non-abrasive soft soap along with a non-scratch or delicate scrub pad. Afterwards, thoroughly rinse with warm clean water and use paper towel cloth to remove any residue left over.

Worktop Maintenance for Stubborn Stains or Spills

We advise that any spilled tea, coffee, juice or wine is to be removed as quickly as possible. Some foods have strong acids and colouring properties, if left on the worktop, could leave stubborn marks. If needed, apply a non-abrasive household cleaner, (a non-abrasive cleaner will not dull the surface shine) and rinse to remove residue.

To remove adhered material such as gum, nail polish or paint, first scrape and clean excess material with a plastic putty knife and then use warm water on a damp clean cloth to remove any marks or residual dirt.

For extra-stubborn stains, a non-scratch Scotch-Brite® pad or similar is recommended along with a non-abrasive cleaner. We do not recommend using strong chemicals or solvents, but if this is spilt on the slab wash off with clean warm water straight away

Heat Tolerance

Quartz is more heat resistant than other stone surfaces including most granite, marble and limestone; and is not affected by temperatures lower than 150°C (300°F).

However, like all stone material, quartz can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes. Therefore, we suggest that hot pots, saucepans, and frying pans never be directly placed on the surface.

We recommend the use of a chopping board, hot pad or trivet be placed on the surface under cooking units such as electric frying pans, deep fat fryers, crock pots, roaster ovens, etc. By doing this you will avoid leaving burn marks on the quartz.

Direct Sunlight [UV-rays] can alter the colour of the quartz surfaces. We do not advise to install our quartz to an outdoor area.

There is no problem installing behind a window, as glass has sufficient UV filters.

Never use colour enforcing products or multiple layers of impregnated products on the quartz surface, as a film will be created and will be hard to remove.

Never use waxes, oils, greasy soaps, or shine improving products on the quartz surface, as a film will be created and will be hard to remove.

Due to the hardness of the quartz stone certain impacts could make the stone crack or leave a small pit in the surface. In most cases this can be repaired with a special repair kit for kitchen worktops.
