CARE
For day-to-day cleaning, clean surfaces with a soft cloth using a mild liquid soap and warm water or a Quartz cleaner to remove most residues. For stubborn stains, use a nonabrasive soft bristled brush and scrub lightly. To remove soap scum, use a non-acidic soap scum remover. Rinse and towel dry the surface to prevent spotting. To prevent staining, spills should be cleaned as soon as possible. Non-polished materials and darker colors require more frequent cleaning as they show dirt, dust, and marks easier than lighter color patterns. Use hot pads, trivets, cutting boards, placemats, and coasters to protect your surfacefrom discoloration, scratches, and staining. Heat generating appliances must be placed on a trivet or hot pad.

SEAMS
Seams will be filled with a color-matching adhesive for a nearly seamless look, however they will be visible and will be felt. Seams will be more apparent on materials with a more dynamic movement or pattern. All seam location wants and needs are considered, but the final decision is at the discretion of the fabricator. Seam placements will be determined based on slab/sheet size, layout, installation requirements, and safety.

SUPPORT

The maximum unsupported overhang for a 3cm Quartz product is 14" and 11" for a 2cm product; as long as 2/3 of the countertop is supported by a solid affixed structure (i.e. cabinets, walls, etc.).
