Avoid These Common Mistakes When Buying Quartz Countertops
Quartz has become a popular countertop material for home renovations. However, many homeowners make common mistakes with it that can and should be avoided.
Though quartz is a natural stone, it’s combined with plastic resins, so it’s easier to take care of. It’s also desirable due to its design flexibility and affordable price.
Spills on quartz counters must be cleaned immediately with a soft cloth. Don’t use products that are too acidic or contain alkaline elements; they can cause more serious staining.
Avoid using anything too abrasive or cutting vegetables straight onto the countertops since they may leave small scratches and knicks, dulling your quartz and decreasing its value.
Use trivets or cooking pads to prevent pots and pans over 300 degrees Fahrenheit from directly touching the quartz, which could lead to discolorations or cracks in the cooler slab.
