Quartz is one material that brings an elegant and luxurious effect to any premises it is installed in – and it’s no surprise that it is a top pick for kitchen countertops as well as bathroom surfaces. Unlike other stone installations like granite, quartz is not fully natural. Around 95% of the material is natural stone, while the rest of it are polymer resins. This modification comes with key benefits. For starters, it delivers a more uniform appearance compared to natural stone. In addition to the value that this brings in aesthetics, the uniformity also makes repairs easy. For instance, with granite installations it would be difficult to find tiles with matching patterns or colours when you want to replace a broken piece, while for quartz counters this will be easy. In addition, the level of maintenance carried out is reduced. Quarts has a high stain resistance compared to natural stones due to its non-porosity, and it also doesn’t need to be sealed. However, the longevity of your quartz installation is directly tied to how well it is maintained. For this, you want to ensure that you’re dealing with products that will be effective in getting rid of the dirt and grime that accumulate on the installation, without damaging the structure. That’s where the Faber Quartz Cleaner comes in.

Gets Rid Of Old, Stubborn Dirt

Through its chemical action, the Faber Quartz Cleaner dissolves the gunk that has been accumulating on the installation. The formulation penetrates into the pores and texture of the quartz countertops, bathroom surfaces and other areas being worked on, breaking down the grime and enabling it to be removed. That old dirt that had been defying conventional detergents is firmly dealt with, bringing back the beauty to your surfaces.

The application itself is straightforward:

  1. Start by diluting the formulation in clean water. Use a 1:2 or 1:3 ratio, i.e., 1 part of the Faber Quartz Cleaner for each 2 or 3 parts of water. Vary the ratio as needed depending on how stubborn the dirt is to remove. 
  2. Work the product over the target area. Here, the conventional application tools can be used, such as a cloth or mop. The choice of cleaning tool comes down to personal preference. 
  3. Give the Faber Quartz Cleaner 10 to 20 minutes to act on the installation. This is to allow it to dissolve the grime that has penetrated into the installation. 
  4. Clear all residues from the area and thoroughly rinse it with lots of water. 

When working with the Faber Quartz Cleaner, you won’t need to allocate extra drying time. After rinsing the area, you can proceed to use it as usual. This is particularly beneficial in minimizing disruption in the premises, allowing normalcy to resume much faster. The product itself has a wide coverage rate, with each litre being used on 10-15m² of surface area depending on your particular needs. 

Clear Surface Patinas

These can be caused by a myriad of issues, from right at the installation/renovation stage where grout residue creates patinas, to those cases where one makes mistakes during the routine cleaning by using products that are incompatible with the surface. The patina reduces the appeal of the surface, and also accelerates the soiling that occurs later on, putting the surface at risk and increasing the workload during routine cleaning. The slightly acidic cleaner will get rid of such kinds of residue, bringing back the original appearance of the area being worked on. When the goal of applying the Faber Quartz Cleaner is to remove surface patina, use the product undiluted. 

Specially Formulated For Quartz Surfaces 

Conventional household cleaners can damage the quartz surface. Even tile and grout cleaners that have not been indicated to be expressly safe for the material can ruin the material. Solutions that are common for use when getting rid of stains and stubborn soiling in the household – the likes of vinegar, ammonia and lemon-based solutions, can result in the corrosion of the quartz installation. With the Faber Quartz Cleaner, that will not be a cause for concern. It’s slightly acidic, achieving optimal balance in the power needed to dissolve stubborn grime, while remaining within safe thresholds for the underlying material. 

Other surfaces can still be worked on with the Faber Quartz Cleaner. However, they should not be sensitive to acids. In addition, you should carry out a spot test on a small, hidden area to ascertain the compatibility of the formulation with that particular surface before you proceed to apply it. 

In surface care, like any other industry, the choice of brand also weighs into the decision on the particular products to go with. What is the track record of the company, and how reliable do customers say their products are? With Faber, you’re getting products from a company that has been in business for more than 3 decades.
