For everyday care, we recommend simple warm water and a cloth. For larger messes, use an all-purpose kitchen spray found at most grocery or discount stores. Clean up all spills promptly! No surface is impervious to prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals or dyes. A Maestro Quartz surface is tough, but only if treated well. Avoid leaving spilled red wine, tomato products, lemons, and soda on surfaces for prolonged periods. These can cause stains and etching if left untreated.
DO NOT USE abrasive cleaners!
Dry abrasive cleaners can damage the finish when used to scour the surface. This includes cleaners like Comet, Soft Scrub, and Ajax. Also, avoid using Scotch Brite or scouring pads that contain Aluminum Oxide. Using these damages the countertop and makes it susceptible to damage. Your warranty will become void if you use these products.
Be sure to use trivets and pot holders when placing hot pots and pans on Maestro Quartz. If subjected to intense temperature changes, there is a risk of thermal expansion and cracking.
Although Quartz is one of the hardest substances, you should never use your countertop as a cutting board. Depending on your knives, you risk scratching the surface or dulling your blades!
Maestro Quartz never has to be sealed after fabrication. With proper cleaning, you can enjoy a lifetime of use from your countertop.
