Quartz stone countertops have many advantages such as “beautiful color, hard and wear-resistant, healthy and environmentally friendly, high-temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and aging resistance”. Although it does not require special maintenance, daily maintenance is still necessary.
1. Do not use non-neutral detergents indiscriminately for a long time.
In order to achieve quick cleaning results, many consumers often use super cleansers and detergents with unknown ingredients. These cleaners and detergents often contain strong acidity and alkalinity. If they are frequently wiped with these liquids, the quartz stone countertops will lose their luster and reduce brightness. We recommend that you use a normal cleaning cloth soaked in warm water and wipe it slowly, or use a normal cleaning cloth soaked in diluted ordinary detergent.
2. Do not place wet towels or sponges for a long time.
Keep the quartz stone countertops clean and dry. Do not allow water to accumulate on the countertops for a long time. Do not place wet towels or wet sponges on the countertops for a long time. China’s quartz stone slab surface is treated by special processes such as nano-polishing. Long-term immersion in water may change some characteristics of the quartz stone slab surface, which is easy to age.
3. Don’t let sharp blades such as bone choppers “close contact” with them.
The hardness of China’s quartz stone is as high as 6.0-7.5 on the Mohs scale. In theory, the hardness is much greater than sharp tools such as knives and shovels used in the kitchen, and it is not easy to be scratched by it. But for sharp blades such as bone choppers, it is best not to let them “close contact” with the countertop, after all, it is more hygienic to use wooden cutting boards.
4. Don’t put the hot pot directly on it.
The raw material of quartz stone itself is a typical refractory material with a melting point of up to 1300 degrees. However, the bottom of the hot pot is extremely hot and covered with ash stains. The extremely high-temperature ash stains are in direct contact with the quartz stone countertop, which is very likely to change the molecular structure of the quartz stone plate surface, causing the countertop to heat up and cold shrink to crack or leave. Grey stain marks. We recommend putting an insulation pad on the countertop and then letting the pan heat up.
5. Do not apply low-priced wax to the countertop at will.
There are many kinds of waxes on the market, including water-based wax, stearic acid wax, oily wax, acrylic wax, and so on. These waxes not only contain more or less acid and alkali substances but also easily stain the quartz stone countertops with wax stains. The wax stains are easy to change color over time, which affects the color and luster of the quartz stone countertops.
