Quartz worktops

There are many characteristics that a quartz worktop offers

Quartz is one of the most resistant and durable of kitchen worktops. did you know you can cut food directly on the surface without damaging it? We still advise a good chopping board, try Nesbits or similar


Quartz is not affected by the following (if cleaned within 24hrs)

  • Solvents
  • Detergents
  • Bleach
  • Oil
  • Vinegar
  • Citrus

This is great as with some other types of kitchen counter surfaces, it can almost immediately stain or cause damage, unlike quartz.

But will all good intentions aside if you do spend lots of time in the kitchen you are bound to create a necessity to clean.


How can I make my quartz countertop shiny again?

If you dull down your quartz worktop we suggest using either CRL EB1701 Surface cleaner or on a daily basis use method Granite and Marble cleaner

Method Quartz Cleaner

Both are simple to apply and wipe off with a microfiber cloth or Blue roll.

Did you know you can also use a good glass cleaner such as the Sprayway s50 glass and mirror cleaner?


What should you not use on quartz countertops?

When cleaning a quartz worktop, we suggest that you do not use sealer or surface sealers, quartz does not need sealing.

Chemicals such as Acids or Ammonia concentrate, you will find the product could stain with concentrated use.

Abrasive materials will cut into the factory polished surfaces and will most probably need professional restoration to get back to the worktop's original appearance.


How to make a home made surface cleaner

If you have the energy or time you can make your own surface cleaner that you can use around the home and on worktops such as the Quartz or granite.

Here is one set of ingredients below:
