How to deal with the darkening and yellowing of quartz stone countertop surface

- Mar 18, 2019-

The kitchen is a place with serious oil stains. Items in the kitchen (such as quartz stone countertops) will form thick stains if not cleaned properly. Although quartz stone is resistant to dirt, quartz stone will appear "discoloration" after more than one year. In fact, this is because many people have improper cleaning techniques, which causes the quartz stone countertop to become discolored and dirty. So how should quartz stone be cleaned up?

The surface of quartz stone has excellent corrosion resistance to acid and alkali. The water absorption rate of quartz stone plate is only 0.02%. The liquid material used in daily use does not penetrate into the interior. The liquid placed on the surface for a long time only needs to be covered with water or Wipe the soapy cloth and wipe it off.

However, there are some misunderstandings about how to clean a lot of thick stains. Most people use strong detergents and use iron balls to clean them. It is wrong to use this method when cleaning quartz stones, but I don't deny the cleaning. Such an operation of other items is effective. According to the test report issued by the quartz stone manufacturer, the hardness of the quartz stone plate can reach the Mohs hardness of 7 grades, which is second only to the hardness of the diamond, so that the general iron can not cause damage to the surface. However, rubbing back and forth with a wire ball is not the same, causing scratches on the surface.

Therefore, for the surface of the surface that has been yellowed and discolored, it is not possible to use a wire ball for cleaning. It can be wiped with dilute sodium water or paint. After wiping, use soapy water for cleaning and drying. If necessary, wipe the antifouling agent or wipe the wax at the end.
