Vorona Quartz Care and Maintenance
A hard, nonporous surface makes Vorona Quartz simple to clean. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is all that is required to maintain its luster. If necessary, common, nonabrasive stone surface cleaners can be used to clean Vorona Quartz. Adhered materials such as food, gum, nail polish, or dried paint can be scraped away with a plastic putty knife; metal marks left by the putty knife can be removed with commercially available stone surface cleaners. Thoroughly rinse the surface with clean water to remove residue. Vorona Quartz recommends testing any cleaner or chemical on a small, inconspicuous area to determine if product will adversely affect the surface. Such damage will not be covered under the Vorona Quartz Warranty.
Tough, Not Indestructible
As with any surface, Vorona Quartz can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties. Do not use products that contain trichloroethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or strippers. Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher agents that have high alkaline/pH levels. Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect. Vorona Quartz always recommends testing any chemical on an obscure area of the Vorona Quartz surface to ensure damage-free outcomes.
Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills
Use a soft cloth with warm water and mild soap or detergent. If needed, apply common, nonabrasive, household cleaners to clean your Vorona Quartz surface. To avoid dulling the surface’s shine, make sure to use a nonabrasive cleaner.
NOTE: Do not use cleaning products that have a high pH level (over 8), such as oven cleaner or paint remover, as they may etch and damage the surface.
Vorona Quartz can tolerate moderately hot temperatures for brief periods of time. Prolonged exposure will result in discoloring or other types of damage.
NOTE: Please be informed that one should avoid direct contact between very hot pots and the Vorona Quartz surface. Excessive localized heat may damage the surface or cause hairline cracks to appear. Vorona recommends the use of an insulator/hot pad/trivet, especially when using cooking units such as electric fry pans/woks/kettles.
