Posted by & filed under Quartz Countertops.

One of our specialties here at Imperial Counters is quartz countertops. Cottage Grove homeowners love this durable and beautiful engineered stone, and we are also big fans of it! When you have these counters installed in your home, there are a few ways you can keep it looking great for a long time. Here are a few of our favorite tips.

Quartz countertops are so popular because they are one of the most durable types of counters available today, and they come in a huge variety of colors and patterns. So you are always sure to find the perfect one to match your home’s décor and your own personal taste. To keep your quartz countertops looking their best, make sure you wipe them down with water and a soft cloth at least once a day. For everyday spills and messes, just be sure you clean them up as soon as possible after they happen.

If you spill something on your quartz countertops and it is difficult to wipe up for some reason, just use a nonabrasive sponge or cleaning pad. Rub at the spot gently and it should come right up. Just be sure you do not use steel wool (Brillo) or anything that could possibly scratch the surface of your quartz countertops.

While quartz countertops are heat and scratch resistant, we still recommend that you use a trivet and cutting board for hot items or for when you want to cut something on your counters. Taking a few simple precautions like this one can help ensure your new quartz countertops look good for as long as possible.

A few cleaning products to avoid include bleach or any cleaning chemical containing bleach, cleaners with a high pH level like oven cleaners and solvents or other powerful chemicals. You should also be sure to keep permanent markers off of your quartz countertops too. You will never need to wax or reseal your quartz countertops either. Your quarz countertops should stay nice and shiny without any help from special waxes or sealants.

With a few small tasks on your part, your new quartz countertops could stay looking great for many years to come. This is one of the many reason quartz countertops are a great investment!
