How To Best Care For Your ProQuartz Surface
ProQuartz quartz surfaces are stylish and sophisticated with enduring and lasting beauty and strength. To retain this enduring beauty, we’re sharing some top care and maintenance tips to ensure that your quartz lasts for many years to come.
When caring for your quartz surfaces, simply wipe the worktops with warm water and a mild non-abrasive cleanser and rinse with clean water. It really is as simple as that. ProQuartz quartz requires minimal maintenance. It is hard, non-porous and requires no
sealing to retain its shine and brilliance.
For tough stains, moisten a clean cloth with a non abrasive cleaner and rub it into the stain, wipe and clean with a moist cloth to remove the cleanser residue.
ProQuartz is also structurally more resistant to heat than other surfaces. However, like any other stone tops, excessive heat and thermal-shock may cause damage. We
recommend the use of a hot pad or a trivet when placing a hot cooking pan or other
cooking units on the surface.
ProQuartz is also substantially harder than natural stone and highly resistant to scratching. However avoid abuse of the surface by refraining from using sharp objects such as sharp knives or screw drivers directly onto the surface.
Cleaning Products to Avoid
Avoid any cleaners that contain Pine Oil. Without very thorough rinsing, these products can leave behind a residue of pine oil. The pine oil then attracts and holds dirt on the surface, eventually reducing the cleanliness of the surface and its appearance.
Also, avoid the use of highly aggressive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher polishing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels (pH 8.5 or higher). Abrasive scrubs/cleaners should also be avoided, especially those containing either soft or hard abrasive particles. The abrasives will harm ProQuartz quartz surfaces and if the surface is not completely rinsed, a powder residue will remain reducing the appearance of the surface, especially on dark colours. Do not use any cleaners that contain Xylene, Toluene, Potassium Hydroxide or Caustic soda as well as any paint removers or furniture strippers containing Trichlorethane or methylene chloride.
