How to Keep Your Kitchen Countertops Looking Great

Keeping your Kitchen and Bath Countertops looking great is easy with the right care. According to Gerri Chmiel, residential design leader at Formica, the best way to maintain your Kitchen and Bath Countertops is to use a clean cotton cloth with water and a mild, non-chemical liquid detergent. Avoid using aggressive products containing acids or alkalis, as well as steel wool or scouring pads. Quartz is one of the most attractive and popular options for a new Kitchen and Bath Countertop because of its durability. These countertops are perfect for the kitchen or bathroom, as they won't be stained by food, juices, facial cleansers, and other substances.

Quartz countertops are made of crushed glass embedded in transparent resin, the same type of resin used to produce solid surface countertops. To keep your quartz countertops looking their best, it's important to clean them regularly. Use a soft cloth and warm water to wipe down the surface. For tougher stains, you can use a mild detergent or a non-abrasive cleaner. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the surface of your quartz countertop. It's also important to seal your quartz countertop regularly.

Sealing helps protect the surface from staining and makes it easier to clean. You can purchase a sealant specifically designed for quartz countertops from your local home improvement store. Follow the instructions on the sealant package for best results. Finally, it's important to avoid placing hot items directly on your quartz countertop. Use a trivet or hot pad to protect the surface from heat damage.

With proper care and maintenance, your quartz countertop will look great for years to come.
