  1. I didn’t know that it would matter what you use to clean a quartz countertop. I guess it does make sense that some cleaners may not react well to quartz or something. I think it would be nice to have quartz countertops, but it will be a while before I can afford it. Thanks for the info!

  2. I was sold a marble sealant by someone who told me I need to seal my quartz countertop. Will it hurt the stone to do so? Also, can I use something like a lysol wipe to disinfect the counter?

    1. Hi Anne,

      Our advice is that quartz counters do not need to be sealed and should not be sealed. All manufacturers recommend using a Ph neutral cleaner, of the clients choosing, to clean their counters. Lysol wipes should not be used unless specifically recommended by the quartz manufacturer who made their quartz counters.

  3. I like that you’ve listed down the tips on how to maintain this type of countertop. I never knew that it is not advisable to use acidic cleaners because it can ruin it due to repetition. My sister could really use these tips since she is planning to have this type of countertop installed in her kitchen this month because her old countertop has been damaged already.
