How to Clean Cambria Quartz Countertops

Cambria quartz is composed of blended natural stones that offer stunning colors and texture while delivering incredible function and performance. While the quartz aggregates make Cambria more durable than granite and other natural stone countertops, there are still certain best practices that will keep your Cambria surfaces looking like new for years to come.

Cambria quartz surfaces are nonporous, which prevents any possibility of bacteria growth. Therefore, all that is required to clean Cambria surfaces is a clean soft cotton material and some soap and warm water. This means you should avoid using strong acidic cleaners, abrasives or chemicals as well as hard scrub pads that can possibly damage the surface. Cambria quartz surfaces do not require any penetrants, sealers or other topical treatments, so it’s best not to use these; they might actually dull the surface and cause color inconsistency.

Sounds simple, right? The truth is the only trouble you’ll ever have with Cambria quartz countertops is choosing which color and pattern you want to complete your kitchen with gorgeous new countertops.

    I’ve had my Cambria countertops for almost 4 years now. I’ve been cleaning them regularly with Windex as I was told that was alright to do. I’m beginning to notice color changes, kind of like water spots appearing. Is it to late for me to fix this problem? Are there any solutions to fix the problem. I just read that cleaning with soap and water is the best way. Is there any way you can help me with this problem?

    Thank you,

    Have only had Cambria for two weeks and so love it. We were told to use soap and water and to avoid anything with ammonia in it which I believe some Windex has. Don’t know if there is a fix, but will be very careful with any cleaners that have Clorox or ammonia.

    After cambria installed there is glue residue at every junction(sloppy work) I called installer and they told me it would wash off. 3 years later it is still there and very irritating, don’t want to experiment, what can I use to get glue off without ruining the finish? Thanks
