Uniquartz requires very little maintenance to keep the surface looking like new. For everyday routine cleaning of your Uniquartz countertop we recommend wiping the surface with clean warm soapy water from a mild detergent and a damp cloth, followed by drying the surface with a clean towel. We also recommend use of a quality stone-safe spray and wipe cleaner such as Quartz Clean Spray Cleaner® regularly, for more intense cleaning, use Quartz Clean Cream Cleanser® (these are both available from Universal Granite Limited). Please understand that the concrete finish will require more daily maintenance than our polished finish as metal marks, fingerprints and other signs of daily living will show on the concrete finish. It is also important to understand that like all materials with dark colours show marks and smears more readily than light colours.
Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No.
As with any surface, Uniquartz can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties. Do not use any products that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or stripper. Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaner that have high alkaline/pH levels. Should the surface be accidentally exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.
We always recommend cutting on an appropriate cutting board and never directly on the Uniquartz surface.
As polished Uniquartz is virtually non-porous it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface without polishing and it never needs sealing. Products with a concrete finish do require sealing to maintain optimum appearance. Tenax® Hydrex Sealer applied at the time of installation is recommended.
Uniquartz will tolerate brief exposures to moderately high temperatures, however,prolonged direct contact with, or radiated heat from very hot pots can cause thermal shock, discolouration or damage. Therefore we do not recommend placing hot pots, pans, electric frying pans, oven trays, etc. directly from the hotplate or out of the oven onto the surface of Uniquartz. We always recommend the use of a chopping board or heat trivet to place hot items on.
