Compac quartz maintenance
The appropriate Compac quartz
cleaning process normally involves using a neutral pH detergent and rinsing with water to let it dry afterwards, which will remove any remains from oil and grease, wine, vinegar, coffee, lemon, etc. There are other ways adopted to maintain Compac quartz surfaces which are discussed below:
Remove grease stains
Dilute a small amount of warm neutral pH detergent and rub gently on the stain with a dry cloth or paper towel in a circular motion. Once the grease has come off the surface, do rinse immediately with clean water.
Clean dry spots caused by lime water
Pour some vinegar or a diluted acid or you can ask for cleaners that do not leave behind an abrasion on the surface. These can be specific for lime, so do consult a professional at the time of purchase. Apply it over the surface of the hob and let it sit for a minute. Then rinse it with water and wipe with a dry cloth or paper towel, if necessary.
Remove rust stains
Metal oxide stains can be removed using a small amount of hydrochloric acid. Let it sit for a few seconds and then rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a paper towel. You should also be wearing gloves when dealing with acids of concentrated nature.
Remove household stains
Remove these types of stains by rubbing with a damp paper towel and a neutral cleaner.Lastly, prevent damage to the surface by using trivets before placing any hot pot or pan, wipe spillages immediately, especially when using oil, foods and drinks and acidic substances. Using a cutting board while preparing food would prevent unwanted markings.
