We get so many questions from customers on how best to care for their Cambria quartz countertops. With the holidays in full swing, your kitchen is most likely in full use! So we thought we’d let you in on all the quartz maintenance secrets in this blog, so you can focus your attention on what matters most.
Cambria is handcrafted from the finest natural quartz by American craftspeople to offer unmatched beauty and durability for life. There are just a few simple guidelines to follow to make sure that your quartz is looking (and performing) its best!
Simple but true. Just wipe clean. All you really need to keep your countertops looking spotless is a soft cloth and warm water. The experts have tested, and they also recommend using a mild soap or these Cambria approved cleaners, including:
• Dawn, Palmolive, or any other mild dish soap
• Simple Green, an all-purpose cleaner
• Windex Multisurface, Vinegar – “gentle on surfaces”
Never use abrasive powders or scrubs like Comet, Steel Wool or SOS pads, or any kind of Clorox bleach product. In addition, never apply any sealers, polishes, penetrants, or topical treatments to your Cambria countertops. Such products will cause the surface to appear dull or ruin the natural surfaces texture. Corrosive chemicals can damage any surface, so please do not expose Cambria to strong alkalines, acids, free radicals, oxidizers, or other similar chemicals (whether high, neutral, or low pH).
Moral of the story: don’t risk the quality – stick with soapy, warm water.
Feelin’ hot, hot, hot! All natural stone surfaces can be damaged by sudden and excessive heat, especially near the edges, as well as direct or sustained heating on the top. Always be sure to put closed-weave hot pads or solid trivets under hot pots, pans, griddles, electric frying pans, slow cookers, and roaster ovens before placing them on your Cambria surfaces.
