Everyone knows that the kitchen is heavily smoked, and if it is not cleaned in time, the countertops and electrical equipment will form thick oil stains. At present, most of the home decoration use quartz stone as the first material for the countertop, because quartz stone has the characteristics of wear resistance, scratch resistance, high-temperature resistance, and penetration resistance. However, there are a few people who choose artificial stone, acrylic, natural stone, and stainless steel.

The application rate of quartz stone on the countertop of the cabinet has exceeded 50%, but there are also many problems, such as discoloration, cracking of the joint seam, and explosion. Today we will talk about the most reacting problem: discoloration. Many people respond that the surface of the quartz stone countertop is like a mirror surface after it is installed, but it will lose its original luster and become dull and yellow after one year of use. What caused this?

Quartz has high hardness and low water absorption, so it can be excluded from penetration (qualified products produced by regular quartz stone manufacturers). If it is not penetrated, it means that the stain is only on the surface. How should it be cleaned and restored to its original gloss?

The main reason for surface discoloration and staining is caused by oil stains or water stains. First of all, we should clean the countertop, use a neutral detergent or soapy water, spray it on the surface for five minutes, then use a rag to clean, rinse with water and wipe dry. Stubborn stains can be wiped off with a blade or wiped with dilute sodium water or paint (note that the time should not be too long. After cleaning with dilute sodium water and paint, soap water must be used to clean and dry again). You can use waxing to increase gloss, you can choose to use an anti-fouling agent (sold in stone stores) to wipe, soak a clean rag in the anti-fouling agent, remove and wring out (the rag is in a semi-dry state) and wipe the table in sequence, half an hour after the completion of the wiping It cannot be used inside, and the background is as bright as new.
