The surface of the quartz stone plate is smooth, flat without scratches, and the dense and non-porous material structure allows bacteria nowhere to hide. It is safe and non-toxic and can be in direct contact with food, which is the biggest advantage of quartz stone countertops. A kitchen is a place with a lot of oil stains. If the items in the kitchen are not cleaned in time, there will be thick stains. Of course, quartz stone countertops are no exception. Although quartz stone is resistant to dirt, it has no self-cleaning function.
Many people have some misunderstandings about how to clean thick stains. Most people choose strong detergent and use wire balls to clean it. This is the wrong method of operation, but I don’t deny that such cleaning is effective for other items. According to the test report issued by the quartz stone manufacturer, the hardness of the quartz stone plate can reach Mohs hardness level 7, which is second only to the hardness of diamond, so that ordinary ironware cannot damage its surface. But using a ball of iron wire to rub back and forth is different, it will damage the surface and cause scratches.
The correct cleaning method for quartz stone is to use neutral detergent or soapy water and use a rag to clean it. After cleaning, rinse with clean water, and then wipe dry with a dry cloth. Although the water absorption rate of quartz stone is almost zero at 0.02%, it is necessary to avoid the possibility of penetration or leaving water stains. The most important thing is the maintenance and cleaning of the splicing seams. After use, they should be cleaned in time to prevent the splicing seams from turning black and causing bacteria to grow. The splicing seams should be waxed regularly. If there is no special wax for stone in your home, you can use car wax or floor wax, and you should wax it at least once a month.
