Daily Cleaning

Each day it is advisable to perform a simple cleanse of the Quartz surface.

  • Clean the worktop with warm water and use a few drops of surface cleaner or antibacterial detergent, using a soft cloth.
  • Rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water and dry it using a soft cloth.
  • Keep the surfaces clean and tidy throughout the day – this makes it easier to clean spillages and also heavy duty cleaning will not be required as often.

For daily cleaning that provides a better finish you can use a product like Bar Keeper’s Friend Power Spray* or Black Diamond Granite & Marble Surface Cleaner Spray*

Heavy Duty Cleaning

When Quartz hasn’t been looked after properly, you will need to perform heavy-duty cleaning with a tougher degreaser product to remove any dirt, grease and grime that has built up.

Use a soft cloth to apply the cleaner to the Quartz and be sure to dry the surface thoroughly. Always follow the instructions on your cleaning product.

We recommend getting one of these products: Bar Keeper’s Friend Power Spray* or Black Diamond Granite & Marble Surface Cleaner Spray*

Both of these manufacturers also offer a product to leave behind a protective layer these are: Bar Keepers Friend Power Cream* or Black Diamond Granite & Marble Surface Polish Spray*

Stain Removal

If you have a stubborn stain on your Quartz worktop, they can normally be resolved easily using the methods in daily cleaning or heavy duty cleaning.

However if you aren’t getting anywhere with those methods then we recommend a fine powder product such as Bar Keepers Friend Stain Remover*

What these powder products do is remove deep-set oil stains, grease and light cement grout haze from polished and unpolished natural stone. But they don’t use a grit like other household cleaners so it won’t cut into the surface.

If the polished surface becomes duller after using these, you can go back to heavy duty cleaning and apply a solution with a built in polish and protective layer.
