CARE AND MAINTENANCE
PentalQuartz is an extremely low maintenance surface that is not easily damaged. Following a few simple instructions will keep your countertop looking like new for many years to come. Use a clean cloth or sponge with mild soap and warm water for routine daily cleaning. Be sure to rinse thoroughly, as soap residue can affect the appearance of your PentalQuartz. For stubborn spots, use a soft cloth, sponge or a non-scratch scrub pad, and a mild, neutral PH, non-abrasive cleanser such as Soft Scrub along with plenty of water to clean the surface. Care should be taken to not scrub too hard to avoid damage to the countertop surface. For dried residue, a flat object such as a plastic putty knife can be used to gently scrape off the foreign material. Honed surfaces can show fingerprints and other signs of daily living more readily than polished surfaces, and will require more frequent maintenance. Since the honed or satin finish actually creates more surface area to the material, it has the potential to show more signs of living from daily use. Honed surfaces can be cleaned as described above. Although PentalQuartz is extremely scratch resistant, it is not scratch proof. You should never cut or chop directly on your countertop. Always use a cutting board. Always use a hot pad or trivet when setting down hot objects, such as hot pans or plates. Direct contact with extremely high heat can cause damage. Care should also be taken when using electric household appliances that may emit high heat such as crock pots, electric skillets, etc. as these can potentially damage the surface. Take care to avoid spilling harsh chemicals such as drain cleaners, paint strippers, oven cleaners, bleach, etc. on your PentalQuartz countertop. Any accidental spills should immediately be cleaned up and the surface rinsed thoroughly with clean water.
PentalQuartz is a quartz-composite engineered stone that is suitable for virtually any interior surfacing application. PentalQuartz can be used for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, bar tops, wall cladding, shower, and tub surrounds, and a variety of other indoor surfacings. PentalQuartz provides significant advantages over many natural stones including greater strength, stain resistance, scratch resistance, and consistency of colors and textures.
