How to Clean Quartzite Countertops
Wondering how to clean quartzite countertops? Cleaning quartzite countertops correctly will keep them looking beautiful for many years to come.
We stopped by and talked to the Daltile stone product development team and asked them about cleaning quartzite countertops. Here’s what they said.
“Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock that, through heat and pressure over time, creates a hard and dense stone with all the beauty of marble but responds more like granite. Quartzite might seem indestructible, but it’s not. The maintenance is very minimal and requires care similar to that of granite.”

What does that mean exactly? The stone team had an answer for that too.
“We recommend using a non-acidic, low pH cleanser such as mild soap and water or stone-specific cleaners easily found at your local retailer.”
They also mentioned that not every quartzite has exactly the same makeup and you should always ask your sales rep if quartzite is right for your application.
As with all stone, quartzite countertops should be sealed and resealed periodically (about every one to two years depending on usage).
