Maintenance and cleaning of Quartz
Cleaning Quartz Worktops in a Home Environment
When using quartz worktops within a household one of the major advantages is that no special sealants or cleaners are required. Normal non abrasive household cleaners are sufficient for everyday cleaning. For more vigorous cleaning we reccommend the use of similar non abrasive cleaners. Prolonged exposure to abrasive cleaners may result in erosion of the product surface. Please note that while specialist cleaners are not required it is worth checking the suitability of cleaners for engineered stone. These may not be identical to those suitable for granite or ceramics
