Once you have purchased a brand new worktop, it’s time to start thinking about how you will keep it clean. There is no denying that kitchen worktops are faced with their fair share of food and drink, with crumbs and spilled liquids going overwhere. Then there’s bathroom worktops, that are faced with leaking toiletry bottles and water splashing around on a daily basis. All of this is to be expected and avoiding mess completely is pretty much impossible, especially in a busy family bathroom or kitchen. Plus, there’s also general dirt and dust to contend with. This is why it’s important that you know how to keep your worktop looking its best at all times. By keeping on top of cleaning, your quartz worktop will remain in tip top condition for as long as possible.
Do You Know How to Clean Your Quartz Worktop?
A lot of people make the mistake of assuming that cleaning a quartz worktop is a difficult task, but it really doesn’t need to be. There’s no special technique or tool that’s required to clean a quartz worktop, and you’ll probably have whatever you need already lying around the house. As long as you make an effort to perform a simple clean on the worktop on most days, your quartz worktop will continue to look its best for a long time.
Cleaning a quartz worktop doesn’t require any specialist cleaning products, it’s simply a case of wiping it down with warm water and basic surface cleaner. This will quickly remove anything that may have appeared throughout the day, such as spilled liquid or crumbs. By keeping on top of this, you will prevent anything from building up and becoming a bigger problem over time.
All you need to do is place a few drops of surface cleaner or antibacterial detergent, along with some water onto a soft cloth. Then, give the worktop a wipe down. Once you have done this it’s important to remove any remaining surface cleaner or antibacterial detergent by rinsing it off with water, before drying with a soft cloth. This is the best way to keep the worktop clean throughout the day and means that heavy duty cleaning will not be required quite as often. This type of cleaning only takes a few minutes each day, but it can make a considerable difference.
When you are cleaning your quartz worktop it’s important to avoid any strong chemicals, such as products with a lot of bleach. Cleaning products with strong chemicals can damage the seal of the worktop and this then increases the risk of it being damaged permanently. It’s also best to avoid a cloth that is too rough, such as a scouring pad. Using anything other than a soft cloth can cause permanently scratch and mark the worktop. All in all, cleaning quartz worktops is a quick and simple task as long as you do it regularly.
