Quartz is a popular countertop material because of its reputation for being low maintenance. The man-made material is heat-resistant and highly impervious to stains and spills. Despite how easy it is to care for, it still needs some care to make sure it stays perfect. The best part? It only needs some soap and water!

Why Cleaning a Quartz Countertop is Important

Quartz is known for its beauty, but with improper care, that can dwindle away. It is important to clean quartz countertops in kitchens and bathrooms for sanitary reasons and to prevent contamination. Additionally, if quartz is neglected for a long period of time, it will become harder to remove spills and stains.

"If you prepare a meal on your countertop, clean it up when you're done. Another big do for me is going over the countertop with a dry microfiber cloth after cleaning to make the countertop shine." - Warren Weis of Scrub Residential Cleaning

How Often to Clean Quartz Countertops

The best practice is daily cleaning, especially if they are located in a bathroom or kitchen. If located in a low traffic area, clean after each use.

Tips for Quartz Maintenance

The most important tip to maintain a quartz's beauty is to clean any spills immediately and buff regularly with a microfiber cloth.
