Most of the work and office spaces nowadays have additional kitchen areas and this is really to see why – after all, we are spending the most time of our days at work and we are in need of a caffeine break or a longer break to unload some energy from food a couple of times every day. In case you have a kitchen area at your office, you already know that it never looks exactly sparkling clean. After all, considering the fact that so many people use it all the time, it cannot look its best if your firm or company doesn’t have hired an office building cleaning service team to visit your office space at least once every week, or an office building maintenance team to clean the kitchen area (and all other areas) to perfection every day. In case you are not lucky to have the peace of mind that professional janitorial cleaning service team is going to do the job, you and your co-workers can try to have the enthusiasm to follow a schedule for everyday cleaning of this area of your workplace, so it is comfortable and pleasant to use for everyone at the office. Here are a few professional recommendations from our specialists.

Quartz countertops are a common choice for many households as well as for many kitchen areas in many offices. It is because of the fact that quartz is cheaper than granite and marble, however no less hard-wearing and long-lasting. It is also a natural material that is very easy to maintain in good condition and clean and that is also very beautiful. Because of the way quartz countertops are structured (94% quartz and the rest is blinding polymer resins) they are almost completely scratch- and stain-resistant. Mould and mildew also cannot penetrate through the surface of these countertops.

As you may expect, regular cleaning and maintenance are simple and easy, involving only a soft cloth and soapy water. However, with quartz countertops, it is important to avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive products since they can dull the finish and weaken the bonds between the resins.

Other products you have to skip when cleaning quartz countertops:

  • Bleach
  • Nail polish remover
  • Turpentine
  • Oven cleaner
  • Drain cleaner
  • Dish washer cleaning liquids

Avoid damages on the surface by immediately removing spills of the above-mentioned liquids. Stains left from tea, coffee or fruits also are recommended to be removed quickly, otherwise, you may need a bit more elbow grease to remove them when they get dry. You can use a paste of water and baking soda to successfully attach stubborn stains, while gum, paint and grease can be removed by gently using a plastic putty scraper.

Although quartz countertops are resistant to scratches, be sure to never use them directly as a cutting surface. Thorough cleaning consists of spritzing the top with a glass cleaner and allow it to sit for a few minutes, then wipe down with a damp cloth and that is all you need to do to have a quartz countertop that looks like brand new from the store.
