Quartz splashbacks consist of 93 per cent quartz crystals. Polymer resins and colour pigments are added for an individual look and extra durability. It is this combination that makes Lechner quartz stone a robust and versatile material. Slight variations in colour, structure and texture are expected due to the natural raw materials.
And the best part? You don't need to do much to ensure that your stone effect splashback remains permanently beautiful and easy to clean.
The following tips are important for the daily handling of quartz stone panels:
- If your quartz stone comes into contact with aggressive agents such as acids or strong limescale removers, remove them quickly with sufficient water. This will help to protect the surface.
- Sauce splashes and other dirt are easiest to remove when fresh. After cooking, briefly wipe the panel to prevent stubborn encrustations.
- Despite its robust surface, we recommend that you do not use scouring sponges, scouring agents, pot cleaners or metal scrapers on your quartz stone splashback.
- Wipe any condensation off the surface with a microfibre cloth to prevent the formation of unsightly limescale stains.
Cleaning your quartz kitchen splashback is a breeze!
Especially in the creative kitchen, melted chocolate, sauces and dough can end up on the wall behind the worktop. With a splashback made of quartz, this is not a big deal, because thanks to a surface without pores, you can clean it in a few easy steps.
For light soiling, it is sufficient to wipe the splashback down with lukewarm water and a cotton cloth or dishcloth. In case of more stubborn soiling,
- mild kitchen cleaners,
- glass cleaners
- and soapy water
will ensure hygienic cleanliness. Wipe all surfaces dry with a lint-free cloth. This helps to prevent limescale stains, especially in regions with hard water. If limescale does appear, it can be removed in a matter of seconds with a little diluted vinegar cleaner.
Important: While polished quartz panels do not require any further maintenance due to their smooth surface, the waterproofing on textured surfaces should be refreshed regularly. We recommend treatment with "Lithofin Fleckstop W" once or twice per year.
