Welcome to the simple world of quartz countertop maintenance! At Edstone Inc., we understand that your home is a reflection of your personal style, which is why we offer stunning quartz countertops that are not only visually appealing but also incredibly easy to care for. Here’s how you can keep your quartz surfaces looking their best year after year.

Daily Cleaning Routine

– Basic Cleaning: Use a soft cloth or a non-abrasive sponge with warm water and a mild detergent for daily wipe-downs. This will keep your countertops shiny and hygienic without any hassle.
– Spills: Act quickly with spills, especially acidic substances like wine or lemon juice which can etch the surface if left untreated. Simply blot the spill with a damp cloth and a bit of mild detergent.

Avoiding Damage

Heat Protection: Though quartz is resistant to scorching, prolonged exposure to high heat can cause damage. Always use trivets or hot pads under pots, pans, or any hot items.

– Scratch Caution: While quartz is scratch resistant, it’s not scratch-proof. Avoid using sharp objects directly on the surface. Opt for cutting boards to maintain the integrity of your countertops.

Dealing with Stains and Blemishes

– Tough Stains: For stubborn stains, use a glass cleaner or a non-abrasive cleaner specifically designed for quartz. Apply the cleaner and allow it to sit for a few minutes before wiping it away gently.
– Gum, Wax, or Food: To remove substances like gum, wax, or food, use a plastic putty knife to gently scrape the debris off the surface. Avoid metal scrapers that can scratch the surface.

Long-Term Care

– Consistent Look: To ensure a consistent look, occasionally wipe down the entire surface with water and mild detergent. This prevents any buildup and keeps the countertop looking new.

By following these simple guidelines, your quartz countertops from Edstone Inc. will maintain their elegance and durability for years to come. Enjoy the luxury of beautiful, easy-to-maintain surfaces that elevate your home’s style and functionality.
