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 quartz surface will not easily scratch or chip. The use of a cutting board is nevertheless recommended.
To maintain the natural beauty of 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.
Quartz floors in high traffic areas should be cleaned daily with a clean, dry dust mop or soft bristle broom. Quartz floors in low traffic areas can be cleaned less frequently using the same method. Spills should be spot treated with the use of a damp mop or cloth towel and, if necessary, a small amount of mild soap or specialized stone cleaner.
A floor machine such as a slow speed buffer or walk behind scrubber can be used for larger commercial environments. Be sure to rinse thoroughly to remove any haze residue that may diminish the shine and beauty of the floor.
Avoid exposing 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 quartz, but highly alkaline (high-pH) cleansers are not recommended when cleaning quartz. If any of the substances listed above come into contact with quartz, rinse the exposed surface immediately and thoroughly with plenty of clean water.

Granite worktops are durable, resistant to scratches, stains and heat resistant when regularly and properly maintained. Granite does require minimal care, including removing stains, sealing and daily cleans:
Common Ways to Scratch Your Granite worktops: Constant cutting without cutting board or dragging heavy appliances can heavily damage the granite worktop. Place trivets for kitchenware taken straight from oven or cooktop. Using hot pots and pans directly on worktop can damage it.
Sealing granite: Sealer for granite would need to be applied approximately twice a year or sooner if worktop is heavy used. Sealing close the pores inside of granite to make it resistant to the absorption of chemicals, acids, and other stains.
You can check if your granite worktop need sealing by applying a drop of water on the surface, if it starts to disappear it is not protected and will require sealing. if the water remains on the surface like a water ball its still protected
Daily Care: Use a microfiber cloth and water to wipe clean your surface. Abrasive products or generic chemicals to clean your worktops are not recommended. You should prefer cleaning products specially designed for natural stone and avoid using highly acidic or cleaning products containing bleach. Always wipe spills immediately. Clean regularly by wiping them clean after each use. The best products are mixture of soap and water or alternatively special cleaning granite products.Apply the product on granite worktops with a soft sponge and gently blot. Rinse the sponge with water to remove excess soap. Rinse with hot water
