It is very simple, due to its physical and chemical characteristics and no porosity; it only requires a regular cleaning using a neutral pH product / detergent, rinsing it with water and dry it with a cloth or towel paper. Following this advice it will maintain its natural brightness and appearance for many years.
Dilute a small amount of neutral pH detergent in warm water, rub the stain with a cloth in a circular motion and rinse it immediately with water.
Pour vinegar (or some diluted light acid) or use non-abrasive cleaners for cleaning the lime stain, applied it over the surface and leave it for 1 minute, then rinse it with water.
How can I remove the hardened remnants of household products?: Food, fruits and vegetables, soft drinks, sauces, basic cosmetics, gum, makeup or nail polish.
Detach the remnants with a plastic spatula, clean the surface, dampen a cloth with a neutral detergent and rinse it with water.
How can I remove household products stains?: Food, fruits and vegetables, soft drinks, sauces, toiletries, bleach, ammonia or nail polish remover.
The remnants of these products are removed by rubbing with a cloth dampened with neutral pH detergent.
Moisten the surface applying a small amount of solvent (such as ethanol). Scraped smoothly with a blade to avoid scratching the surface. Rinse it immediately with plenty of water.
To eliminate rust stains: Pour a small amount of hydrochloric acid. Leave it to react for a few seconds, rinse it with plenty of water and dry it with a cloth towel paper.
All technological quartz finishes: Polished, Ovo and Matt have the same quality levels and physical-mechanical qualities, but Ovo and Matt finishes require more care and maintenance as they are much more sensitive daily life marks.
COMPAC has several products made from renewable vegetable-based “BIO” resins: Carrara, Perino, Botticino, Noce, Imperial, Portoro and Pierre Bleue. Also it manufactures, products with recycled materials (crystals) high percentages: Azabache, Titaneo, Lactea, Rubi and Venecia. All of them have the same qualities and therefore the same care and maintenance.
All our technological quartz products are certified and approved for home use by the official agency in each country. GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality certified, which certifies their contribution to creating healthy indoor environment by not producing any volatile polluting emissions, GREENGUARD Children’s & Schools, which supports its use in schools or places with children for long periods of time and NSF that warrants that no contaminant chemical element is transmitted to the food from the surfaces.
Do not put COMPAC outside or in any place under an intense sunlight or in places where the product is exposed to UV rays lamps.
COMPAC Technological Quartz is heat resistant product but if you placed recently heated objects on the worktop (pans, pots, etc…) they can damage it irreversibly. We therefore recommend that you never place them directly on worktop, use mats and pads to place these objects. Toasters, fryers and embedded equipment: hob, dishwashers, etc, which generate heat mush have enough space between them and the surface to cool away the high temperatures. Always use common sense and you will keep the beauty of this natural material.
No, COMPAC quartz surfaces do not need any kind of repellents or sealers because they have no porosity.
The Technological Quartz is made with 93-95% of natural quartz, one of the hardest and most beautiful mineral, but we recommend using cutting boards for proper conservation.
Do not use paint stripper, caustic soda, degreasing or products with pH upper 10 or chlorine-base: oven cleaners, toilet, furniture polish, oil soaps and products to unclog. Do not use products which contain hydrofluoric acid or dichloromethane. If you use bleach or solvent rinse them with water and never leave them in contact with the surface for a long time.
Quartz Surfaces should not be re-polished under any circumstances, even quartz floors or countertops.
