Preventing heat damage
Protective trivets and heat pads must always be used underneath cookware such as skillets, saucepans, pots or dishes when removing hot items directly from any heat source (oven cooktop or microwave) and placing onto the surface.

The use of cutting boards and taking care not to drop or move heavy objects on the surface will help to ensure the long lasting beauty. Overseas Quartz surfaces has been designed to withstand normal daily use and whilst it is resistant to scratches, cuts and chipping.
Cutting directly on the surface should be avoided.
Routine care and maintenance
For routine cleaning, use small quantities of non-bleach, non-abrasive cleaners together with warm water and a damp cloth or sponge. Liquid spills including fruits, vegetables, food colorings and curries, should be wiped up and cleaned with a mild detergent and water immediately after detection.
Removing difficult spills and stains
If normal cleaning procedures do not work on stubborn or dried spills, use a non-abrasive cleaning pad such as a household sponge, along with a common mild cream cleanser or a glass and surface cleaner. Should chewing gum, nail polish, or similar substances adhere to the surface, they can be removed with a plastic scraper. Gently scrape off the substance, then follow the routine cleaning procedures listed above.
Note: Should paint spots or stains persist after following the above procedures then, as a last alternative, the spot use of acetone may be successful. Testing on an inconspicuous area first is highly recommended.
