Caring for solid surfaces
Caring for your new solid-surface benchtop of splash back is easy but vital to ensure you keep it looking amazing.*
For everyday cleaning use warm soapy water (ensuring it’s a mild detergent) and a clean damp cloth. It is important that you don’t use the same cloth that you would use to wash your dishes as it may transfer oils and contaminants onto the surface.
For more in-depth cleaning, stone manufacturers, such as Caesarstone and Quantum Quartz, offer a great range of cleaning products that have been specifically formulated and tested for their specific range of solid-surface products.
Although natural and engineered solid surface products are strong, they’re not indestructible. Strong chemicals and acids can eat away at the surface. Avoid using products with high alkaline and PH levels such as oven cleaner, to ensure your solid-surface is not damaged. Hot items shouldn’t be place directly onto the surface as the rapid change in temperature may cause damage.
And finally, for the sake of your knives – never cut directly on a solid-surface!
*Always refer directly to the manufacturer for care and maintenance instructions specific to your solid-surface product.
