Everyone knows that the kitchen is a heavy source of oily fume. If the countertops and electrical equipment are not cleaned in time, thick oil stains will be formed. At present, most home decorations use quartz stone as the first material for countertops, because quartz stone has the characteristics of wear resistance, scratch resistance, high-temperature resistance, and anti-permeability. However, there are also a few people who choose artificial stone, acrylic, natural stone, and stainless steel.
The application rate of quartz stone in cabinet countertops has exceeded 50%, but there are also many problems, such as discoloration, cracking of joints, and explosion. Today we will talk about the most reacted problem: discoloration. Many people have reported that the surface of the quartz stone countertops will look like mirrors just after installation, but after one year of use, they will lose their original luster and become dull and yellow. What caused this?
Quartz stone has high hardness and low water absorption rate, so the possibility of penetration can be ruled out (a qualified product produced by a regular quartz stone manufacturer). If it is not penetrated, it means that the stain is only on the surface. How to clean and restore the original luster?
The main reason for the discoloration and staining of the surface is caused by oil stains or water stains. First of all, we should clean the countertop, use neutral detergent or soapy water, spray on the surface and soak for five minutes, then clean it with a rag, rinse with water and wipe dry. Stubborn stains can be scraped off with a blade or wiped with dilute sodium water and paint (note that the time should not be too long, after washing with dilute sodium water and paint, you must use soapy water to clean and dry again). Polishing can be done with waxing. You can wipe with an anti-fouling agent (available at the stone store). Soak a clean cloth in the anti-fouling agent, take it out and wring it out (the cloth is in a semi-dry state) and wipe the countertop in turn, half an hour after the completion of wiping Can not be used inside, after the background surface is as bright as new.
