10 Ways to Clean and Maintain Bathroom Quartz Tiles
Quartz is a manufactured stone, made of natural quartz, resins and pigments. Natural quartz is giving the slabs durability, resins are making them non-porous and pigments are added to change colour. Non-porous materials are ones that don’t absorb water and liquids, which makes them easier to maintain. With that being said, your bathroom quartz tiles can always look shinier and be more hygienic.
1. Daily cleaning
For regular cleaning, it is best to use soap and water. Just make the soapsuds and wipe your tiles with a mop. Rinse off the residue with a clean, damped mop.
2. Deeper cleaning
Use the glass cleaner for deeper cleaning. Just spray the cleaner onto your tiles and wipe them with a damped mop. This will make them extra shiny and clean.
3. Avoid ammonia
Ammonia-based cleaners can lead to discolourations and make your quartz tiles less resistant to staining. Cleaners that usually contain ammonia are oven cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner and many multi-purpose cleaners.
4. Avoid bleach
Bleach can also lead to discolourations, so it is best to avoid it. If your tiles come in contact with it by accident, use mild soap and water to remove it. Water and soap will neutralize it, so it shouldn’t take damage when you remove it on time.
5. Use a vinegar solution
Vinegar has been known as an excellent natural cleaner and it is a great substitute for glass cleaner if you don’t have one handy. Make the solution by using equal parts of water and vinegar. You can pour the solution in the spray bottle if you want to target a certain area, or you can use it directly from the bucket.
6. Try speciality cleaning products
We make specially designed cleaners for quartz that target specific problems like removing stains or rust. Since they are specially designed for quartz, they will never have any side effects.
7. Use soft materials
Avoid using rough materials and sponges on your quartz bathroom tiles. Instead, just use soft materials; quartz has a sleek surface and they will be enough to remove any kind of stain or build-up.
8. Use rubbing alcohol
Rubbing alcohol is a great way to disinfect your tiles. It is best to use it as is, without diluting it in water.
9. Nail polish removing
Standard nail polish removers can also lead to discolourations, so you should avoid them. Instead, pour a bit of isopropyl alcohol on a cotton pad and wipe the infected area.
10. Hair colour removing
If you need to remove hair colour from your tiles, make a solution from baking soda and water. Create a paste of these two ingredients that is similar to the consistency of toothpaste. Rub the paste onto the stain and let it sit for one hour. Then rinse off the paste with a damped cloth.
Quartz is one of the easiest materials to maintain; by following these tips, you will get the most of it. Your quartz bathroom tiles will be shiny and highly hygienic just by applying these simple tips.
