Caring for Your Stone

If you are considering purchasing quartz for your home, you should consider finding out how to clean it. Quartz is a countertop material you will be delighted with whether you buy it for your kitchen or bathroom. Quartz countertops require very little maintenance and are not particularly difficult to maintain.

Routine to Clean Countertops

  • Take a soft cloth or sponge and dip it in warm water and soap mix.
  • We recommend using a putty knife to scrape off any dirt or food.
  • Spray a liberal amount of your preferred degreaser on your quartz surfaces, making sure it is safe for quartz.

Removing Tough Stains

  • To rub out difficult stains, you will require adhesive remover. Use a cleanser and a moist rag or cloth to clean.
  • Take a wet rag with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol and rub the stain using the wet towel or cloth.
  • We advise you to call your quartz provider and inquire about the safety of using a glass cleaner to clean your quartz deep, to be on the safe side.

Preventing Quartz Countertop Damage

  • You should clean the quartz as soon as the spill happens.
  • To protect your quartz countertops from really hot temperatures, you can use mats or trivets.
  • Cutting and chopping food directly on your quartz can be tempting because quartz is durable and hard, but it is not recommended.
  • Your quartz counters will become damaged if you use excessively acidic or alkaline cleaners. Run and get a wet cloth dipped in water and mild detergent to clean up any spills.

Quartz Care and Maintenance

Quartz is a highly durable material that requires very little maintenance. The best thing to do is not to use harsh cleaners or cleaners with abrasive materials in them. These can damage the surface of your granite or quartz, dulling and diminishing its beautiful, flaw-free finish. Also, please note the following:

  • It’s best to clean liquid spills and dried foods as soon as possible.
  • Just take a minute to wipe your quartz surface with a clean, soft cloth or sponge soaked in a mixture of mild dish soap and warm water.
  • Protect your quartz surfaces by using a hot pad or trivet with rubber feet.
  • It is better not to use knives or any other sharp object directly on your countertops or other surfaces.

Granite Care Do’s & Don'ts

Granite is a sturdy, robust material that requires little maintenance. While you should avoid using abrasive cleansers, caring for and maintaining granite is not too difficult.


  • Clean your granite surfaces daily with warm soapy water.
  • Always rinse and dry granite surfaces after cleaning.
  • Use a clean, soft rag or mop on floors and other surfaces regularly to maintain that characteristic gloss.
  • Use mild, non-abrasive cleansers.


  • Use harsh chemicals like bleach, vinegar, or lemon juice.
  • Use cleaners that contain acids, like grout cleaners and bathroom cleaners.
  • You should never mix chemicals unless directions specifically instruct you to do so.

Seal Natural Stone Surfaces

Any natural stone surface can be sealed, although the procedure varies depending on the material and purpose. For instance, a different sealant could be needed for quartz worktops than for granite flooring. In some cases, a sealant may not be necessary. It is essential to ask a natural stone professional about your unique stone and how to seal it properly.
