2. Use cutting boards

Whenever you are cutting or chopping anything, use a cutting board. This will prevent your knives from scratching the surface of the quartzite.

3. Clean up spills immediately

If you spill anything on your quartzite countertop, wipe it up immediately. Stains can be difficult to remove and spills can leave behind watermarks.

4. Seal the quartzite

Sealing the quartzite will help to protect it from stains and scratches. You will need to reseal the quartzite every few months.

5. Be careful with hot pans

Always use a hot pad or trivet when placing a hot pan on your quartzite countertop. This will prevent the heat from damaging the surface of the quartzite.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your quartzite countertops looking like new for years to come.
