Quartz countertops are easy to clean and maintenance free. Having quartz in your kitchen means less time and energy spent cleaning and more time spent enjoying entertaining guests, mealtimes', and more in the heart of your home. The easy-care convenience of Cambria quartz surfaces is an added benefit to its beauty and it couldn’t be simpler to ensure your countertops remain as flawless as the day they were installed. Here are three things you need to know:

1. When Cleaning Quartz Countertops, Keep It Simple

Harsh and heavy-duty cleaners are unnecessary with Cambria quartz surfaces. For easy cleanup, all you need to clean your quartz countertops is warm water, a soft cotton cloth, and mild soap, if desired. Cambria quartz surfaces are nonabsorbent and therefore hygienic; perfect for a hardworking countertop. A stain-resistant countertop means you can let that wine spill linger without any worries.

2. You’ll Never Have to Polish or Seal Quartz

It’s easier than you think to keep your kitchen pristine. Cambria quartz countertops never need routine polishing or sealing, which means countertop maintenance can be crossed off your to-do list for good. Learn more about countertop pros and cons.

3. Note These Helpful Quartz Countertop Reminders

Entertaining can be stressful, especially when cooking is involved. Your easy-to-clean quartz countertop should be the least of your worries. As with all stone surfaces, you should not put direct heat on Cambria, so be sure to keep a trivet or closed-weave hot pad handy to protect your countertops. Stock up on a few accessories that complement your space, such as a geometric metal trivet for a modern space or a natural wood trivet for some farmhouse flavor.
