Caesarstone® is trusted for its durability, style and timelessness, requiring very little maintenance to keep it looking like new. As with all surface material, however, Caesarstone® should be treated with some level of care.
Caesarstone® recommends following these simple care and maintenance instructions:
- For every day, routine cleaning, wipe the surface with warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and clean damp cloth. Do not use the same cloth you use to wash the dishes, as it may transfer oils and other contaminates to the Caesarstone® surface.
- For stubborn marks, household bleach can generally be used as an effective cleaner, but care should be taken as some products are considerably stronger than others.
- Never attempt to polish the surface and avoid prolonged rubbing in one spot when cleaning.
- Do not use products that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or stripper.
- Avoid all contact with highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaners that have high alkaline/pH levels. Should the surface be accidentally exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.
- Place hot pots, oven trays and fry pans directly from the oven or hot plate onto a wooden chopping board or cork mat. Although Caesarstone® is heat resistant, like all stone materials, Caesarstone® can be damaged by sudden and rapid surface temperature changes. A good rule of thumb is that if your hand cannot tolerate the level of heat of an item to be placed on the surface for more than a few seconds, then the heat source is too high.
- Never cut directly on the Caesarstone® surface. Use an appropriate cutting board to avoid blunting kitchen knives or damaging the surface of your bench top.
