RHF Quartz Stone is a premier surfacing material. It has all the benefits of natural quartz without its drawbacks. RHF Quartz Stone is a non-porous material that is highly stain, scratch, and heat resistant. However, it is not stain, scratch, or heat proof. Therefore, using common sense and the right care & maintenance, you can keep your RHF Quartz Stone’s good looks for years to come.
Simply clean RHF Quartz Stone with soap and water on a regular basis to keep the lustrous gloss and radiant sheen. For routine cleaning, use warm water and a damp cloth with a small amount of no-abrasive cleaner that does not contain bleach. Although RHF Quartz Stone is resistant to staining, spills should be cleaned as soon as possible. Liquid spills, fruits, vegetables, or other foods should be wiped up and cleaned with soap and water.
RHF Quartz Stone is designed to be extremely resistant to heat and can withstand exposure to normal cooking environments without being damaged. Although RHF Quartz Stone is more resistant to heat compared to most surfacing materials in the market, all surfacing materials, including stone, can be damaged by extreme temperature changes, whether prolonged or sudden. Trivets and hot pads should be used when placing hot skillets, pans or other heat generating appliances on the surface.
RHF Quartz Stone‘s durable surface is designed to withstand normal use. While it is resistant to scratches, cuts and chipping, cutting directly onto RHF Quartz Stone should be avoided. Using cutting boards and taking care not to drop or move heavy objects on the surface will help to ensure the long-lasting beauty of RHF Quartz Stone.
There are some chemicals that may damage RHF Quartz Stone. Avoid exposing RHF Quartz Stone to any strong chemicals and solvents that can be found in household items like paint removers, paint and stain strippers that contain trichloroethane or methylene chloride, nail polish removers, bleach, furniture cleaners, oil soaps, permanent markers or inks, and chemicals with high alkaline/PH levels (over cleaners, drain openers, etc). Avoid using cleaning products that contain oils, powders or abrasives. Though long-term or frequent exposure must be avoided at all times, products that contain acetone or bleach may be used with short-term exposure (removing and rinsing within 5 minutes of application) to clean difficult stains or residues. Always handle such cleaning agents with care and rinse the applied surface afterwards.
For stubborn or dried spills, if routine cleaning procedures do not work, use a non-abrasive cleaning pad along with common household cleaners or glass and surface cleaners. If gum, nail polish, paint or other substances are accidentally allowed to adhere to the surface, they can be removed with the use of plastic scraper or putty knife to gently scrape off the substance and by following routine cleaning procedures.
RHF Quartz Stone is made from the finest natural quartz, making it one of nature’s hardest surfaces. As a result, RHF Quartz Stone will keep its beauty for years without sealing or polishing, it is also non-porous, so it won’t absorb stains or amass harmful bacteria. However, as a general precaution, maintain your RHF Quartz Stone by using trivets and cutting boards to avoid damages caused by extreme or sudden change in temperature or impact on the surface.
