Quartz worktop care tips you need to know

If you have quartz worktops in your home, it’s important that you know how to care for them. Proper care will keep these surfaces looking great for as long as possible. In the short term, proper care will help ensure that you enjoy the use of your worktops. In the long term, these surfaces will add value to your home if you choose to sell in the future.

Regular cleaning

An essential part of care involves proper cleaning. To keep your quartz worktops clean, you should wipe away spills right away. While the surface is not porous, it doesn’t hurt to wipe away acidic substances in particular. Sticky substances can be more difficult to clean once they harden. So, make sure that you wipe them up sooner rather than later. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scrubbing pads.

Prevent damage

Always place cups, glasses, dishes and pots on mats, trivets and coasters to prevent them from coming into direct contact with the quartz surface. You should also avoid cutting directly on the stone. Use a cutting board just as you would on any other type of surface. You should also be careful as far as UV rays are concerned. They can cause discolouration so make sure you keep the curtains or blinds drawn when sunlight hits your kitchen window.


If, despite your best efforts, you notice a chip, scratch or crack in the surface of your quartz worktops, there are some easy steps you can follow. Many of these types of damage can be repaired in a matter of just a couple of hours. More severe damage should be repaired by a professional. Prompt repairs will help prevent the damage from getting worse.

By following the manufacturer instructions, you will ensure that your quartz worktops stay beautiful for longer and ensure that they earn their keep. The longer your worktops last, the greater value for money you will enjoy at the end of the day.
