Do I Need to Clean My Quartz Countertops?
While one of the main benefits of quartz countertops is their stain resistance compared with natural stone, they are not stain proof. You should definitely be giving your quartz a wipe down daily, or as soon as you notice you’ve spilled something like red wine, mustard, or any sort of chemicals.
Unlike natural stone, quartz does not need to be sealed. Make sure you never apply a sealant as it may damage your quartz.
- Clean your quartz countertops daily

Occasionally, if you cut directly on your quartz (not recommended as this will dull your knives in a hurry) you may notice metallic marks that look like scratches. Normally, this is metal left behind because the quartz is so hard that it took some of the material off your knife. The best way to remove those marks is usually with a white latex eraser, just like you would erase a pencil mark.
In the event that you do have some hard to remove stains, each manufacturer has a different method depending on the type of stain you have. We’ve provided some handy links below.
