1. Daily cleaning
For day do day cleaning you can use just soap, water and a soft cloth. Make the soapsuds and wipe your surfaces with a soft cloth. Rinse the remaining soapsuds with a clean damped cloth. Wipe your surfaces with a dry cloth or let your slabs dry by themselves.
2. Deeper cleaning
Occasionally, you can do the deeper cleaning, to thoroughly remove all the build-up from continuous use. You can do that with a vinegar solution or the glass cleaner. You can mix vinegar and water to make your homemade cleaning agent. Both will thoroughly clean your slabs and make them shine even more than with regular cleaning.

3. Use mats and trivets
Quartz resists high temperatures well, but to prevent from any accidental marks or rings, always use mats and trivets. Not only that you will prevent the stains from happening, but you will also make your cleaning easier; by using regularly mats, you will not have to constantly remove the glass rings and watermarks.
4. Removing stains
Quartz is highly resistant to all liquids, but if you don’t remove them on time, they can leave a mark. Such liquids are usually wine or coffee. If such a thing happens to you, there is still a chance that you will be able to make it as it was before; just use adhesive cleaner. Spray a bit of the cleaner on the spot, let it sit for few minutes and then rinse it off with a damped cloth.
5. Removing build-up
Build-up from food is best removed with a putty knife. When the build-up has hardened and it is difficult to remove it with a putty knife, pour a bit of water on it to make it softer. Then follow up by removing it with a putty knife. Always avoid using a sharp object to remove the build-up and just use the putty knife. You can follow up with the usual cleaning, to make sure there is no residue.
If you follow these simple tips your quartz surfaces will be, even after many years, the same as the day you got them. You will never have to think about sealing with quartz surfaces. In addition to that, it is very easy to clean and will be highly resistant to staining.
