Quartz is an excellent choice for kitchen countertops. They’re fairly low maintenance too, which means it’s easy to have beautiful and clean quartz countertops at all times. Of course, it’s all up to you if you want your counters looking beautiful all the time. It’s easy but you have to clean them regularly not only for aesthetic purposes but also to keep the counters durable for a long time.
There are many benefits you can expect from using quartz countertops. Among the pros you can enjoy are the following:
- Scratch Resistance
- Impact Resistance
- Classy and Elegant
- Numerous Color Choices
Quartz isn’t perfect though. They’re not exactly heat resistant so you have to be sure you have a trivet or stove mitt to protect the quartz when you place hot pans or pots on it. If you’re looking for the perfectly heat-resistant material, consider granite countertops instead. In addition, quartz is slightly expensive and not suitable for outdoor use. However, these cons are minor compared to the benefits that quartz countertops can offer.
Cleaning quartz countertops is very easy. Remember that you have to clean up spills the moment you see them on the counters. While quartz is a non-porous material and can resist stain, carelessly leaving spills behind might eventually damage your quartz countertops. Here are some quartz countertops cleaning tips to keep in mind.
- Use a soft and clean washcloth. While quartz is scratch-resistant, it is best to keep those hard and rough dish sponges in the sink.
- Choose gentle soap over harmful and toxic cleaners. You don’t need bleach or strong chemicals to clean countertops. Clean, warm, and soapy water should be more than enough.
- Rinse a soapy countertop with clean water and wipe off dry with a soft rag.
