CENTURY QUARTZ STONE CARE & MAINTENANCE

Everyday Cleaning:

Maintaining your Century Quartz Stone countertop is easy. Simply wash with soft close and water with mild detergent to maintain its gloss.

Recommended Bleach-Free, non-abrasive cleaners:

  • Simple green lime-scale remover

  • Vinegar Cleaner (diluted)

  • Formula 409 Glass and Surface Cleaners

  • Windex (No ammonia) Vinegar Multi-surface cleaner

  • 3M Glass Cleaner

Stains Spills:

Century Quartz Stones are non-porous, so spills and stains are not absorbed into the surface, however some stains might be difficult to remove than others. For tough stains, non-abrasive cleaners such as Soft Scrub Liquid Gel with Bleach, damp soft cloth or paper towel. Clean with circular motion rinsing thoroughly with warm clean water.

For dried spills such as food, gum, grease, carefully use a razor blade to scrape away the residue prior to cleaning which might leave a grey metal mark from the razor blade but can easily be cleaned with recommended cleaners and non-abrasive pad.

Heat Resistant:

All Quartz countertops are not heat proof, chemical proof or fracture proof, so are Century Quartz Stone. However, any stone material can potentially be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes, especially near edges and cut outs.  Sudden thermal expansion causes thermal shock to your countertop to crack. Damage caused by thermal expansion is not covered under Century Quartz Stone Warranty.

Therefore we recommend to use readily available trivets and hot pads especially when using electric frying pans, crock pots, toaster ovens, hot skillets. DO NOT PUT HOT COOKWARE DIRECTLY ON THE CENTURY QUARTZ STONE SURFACE.

Scratches or Chips:

Century Quartz Stone is resistant to scratches and cracks; however excessive force and pressure from objects can damage the surface. We do recommend the use of cutting board to protect the surface. To avoid chipping of the edges we recommend minimum rounded edge of 1/8 inch around sink cut outs and perimeter of exposed edges of the counters.

What Not To Use

Do not use abrasive agents such as regular Comet and Ajax. Do not expose Quartz surfaces product to abrasive, strong alkaline, any kind of acids, free radicals, oxidizers like high low or neutral pH including, Bleach, oven cleaners, paint removers, batteries, furniture strippers, oil soaps.

Century Quartz Stone surface does not require sealants, waxes, penetrants or topical treatments under any circumstances. Such products will wear off and cause the gloss to appear dull or inconsistent finish on the surface.

  • Permanent markers and inks
