Care & Maintenance FAQ

questions and answers

Atlas Quartz is resistant to cracks, scratches and stains. However, like most materials, excessive force and/or pressure can damage the surface.

Atlas Quartz is resistant to most stains caused by fruit juices, liquid food colouring, coffee, tea, wine, grapes and soft drinks.

Atlas Quartz’s non-porous nature provides maximum resistance to staining and fully eliminates the need for any sealing. The non- porous quality of the surface also greatly reduces the potential for bacterial growth.

Use a soft, damp cloth with warm water and soap. If needed, apply common, non-abrasive, household cleaners such as Chemico, or Soft Cleanser Cream directly onto a damp cloth or sponge and wipe the surface, rinsing thoroughly after cleaning. To avoid dulling the surface’s shine, make sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner, and rinse off any cleaner with water. To remove adhered material such as food, gum, or nail polish, first scrape away the excess material with a plastic putty knife and then clean the surface with a damp cloth to remove any residual marks and dirt.

With the exception of Atlas Quartz Zeru, your counter tops won’t need to be re-sealed. Zeru needs to be sealed with a nano effect sealant & we recommend doing this once a year to keep the pure white, glossy finish..

Atlas Quartz surfaces are highly scratch resistant; however, avoid using sharp objects such as sharp knives or screwdrivers directly on the surface. The use of a cutting board is always recommended.

Due to its high density and non-porous qualities, normal cleaning with a damp cloth and mild detergent will keep your Atlas Quartz surface looking like the first day it was installed. To avoid dulling the surface’s shine, make sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner, and thoroughly rinse off with water after use. We recommend a thorough cleaning of your Atlas Quartz surface on a regular basis.

Atlas Quartz is structurally more heat resistant than other stones, including granite. However, any stone material can potentially be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes, especially near the edges. Therefore, using inexpensive and readily available hot pads or trivets is always recommended, especially when using cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots, or roaster ovens. We do not advise putting hot cookware directly on the Atlas Quartz surface.

We recommend using cleaning products between pH 5-8. Avoid exposing Atlas Quartz to chemicals with pH levels outside this range, such as oven grill cleaners, floor strippers, toilet bowl cleaners, oil soaps, tarnish removers, furniture cleaners, drain products, Domestos, etc. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any potentially damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.

Atlas Quartz’s care-free maintenance and everlasting benefits and performance allow more time for the things that matter most to you. Whether you selected Atlas Quartz to be your surface of choice for food preparation or simply to beautify your home, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that Atlas Quartz is completely worry and care-free.

While some customers have opted to install Atlas Quartz in outdoor applications, this use is not covered by our life time Warranty. Atlas Quartz has not been tested in prolonged UV ray exposure settings.
