Care Instructions

HOW TO CARE AND MAINTAIN

  • Dakota Quartz is virtually maintenance free and can be cleaned with extreme ease.
  • Common household spills – such as, tea, coffee, lemon juice, soda, fruit, vegetable juice, olive oil or grease spills – are easily removed and the surface can be restored to its original appearance.
  • Quartz is one of the hardest materials in nature, which is an assurance that your Dakota Quarrtz surface will not easily scratch or chip. The use of a cutting board is nevertheless recommended.
  • To maintain the natural beauty of Dakota Quartz, do not place hot skillets or roasting pans directly onto the surface but use a trivet instead.
  • For routine cleaning, use a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary, a small amount of mild soap. Once clean, rinse and dry the surface thoroughly.
  • For stubborn or dried spills, use a nonabrasive cleaning pad such as a white 3M Scotch-Brite® scrub pad combined with a small amount of mild soap or specialized stone cleaner.
  • Avoid exposing Dakota Quartz to chemicals and solvents, especially paint removers or furniture strippers containing trichlorethane or methylene chloride. Keep away nail polish remover, bleach or cleansers that contain bleach, bluing, permanent markers or inks,. While casual exposure to alkaline materials will not damage Dakota Quartz, but highly alkaline (high-pH) cleansers are not recommended when cleaning. If any of the substances listed above come into contact with quartz, rinse the exposed surface immediately and thoroughly with plenty of clean water.
  • Do not use strong abrasive and/or alkaline cleaning products. Always follow the manufacturers’ dilution instructions and recommendations
