Quartz is highly resistant to stains caused by fruit juices, liquid food coloring, coffee, tea, wine, grapes, soft drinks, paints, nail polish and remover, automotive fluids, and permanent makers. If any of the above is spilled on the quartz surface, immediately wipe off the stained area with any commonly available multi-purpose cleaner or household detergent and then with ordinary water. For more stubborn spills and stains, repeat the procedure several times and use a household scouring pad (not too abrasive or harsh) to remove the stain. It is possible that some of the stubborn stains may leave a light mark or very slight discoloration on the stone. Contact us if a stain persists.
Blot the spill with a paper towel immediately. Don’t wipe the area because it will spread the spill. Flush the area with mild soap and water, then rinse. Dry the area thoroughly with a soft cloth. Repeat as necessary. Your granite surface has been sealed prior to installation but may require additional sealing after install due to the porosity of the stone. Once sealed properly, there should be little or no staining. However, if a stain does persist please see the section below regarding stain removal. A honed or brushed surface will stain much faster than a polished surface and must be sealed more frequently.
