Care & Maintenance CaesarStone® is a 91%-95% quartz based product that has outstanding properties to ensure ease of maintenance and longevity of your surfaces. It will withstand exposure to tea, soda, wine, vinegar, lemon juice and strongly coloured spices.Everyday Cleaning CaesarStone® requires very little maintenance to keep the surface looking like new. For everyday, routine cleaning of CaesarStone® we recommend wiping the surface with warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and a damp cloth or alternatively use a quality spray and wipe type cleaner.
Extra Stubborn Dried Spills and Stains For removal of these or if you wish to give your CaesarStone® benchtop or surface a thorough clean then we recommend CaesarStone® brand Cream Cleanser and a 3M™ Scotchbrite™ Never Scratch™ All-Purpose Scrubber which can be used without damaging the stone, or alternatively applied to a soft damp cloth. To remove adhered materials like food, gum and nail polish, first scrape away the excess with a sharp blade. If there are any grey metal marks on the surface, a mild detergent will remove it. Household bleach can generally be used as an effective cleaner to remove stubborn marks, but care should be taken as some products are considerably stronger than others. Heat Resistance CaesarStone® will tolerate brief exposures to moderately hot temperatures, however prolonged direct contact with, or radiated heat from very hot pots can cause thermal shock, discolouration or damage. Therefore we do not recommend placing hot pots, pans, electric frying pans and oven trays directly from the hotplate or out of an oven onto the surface of CaesarStone®. We always recommend the use of a hot pad or trivet to place hot items onto.
Polishing As CaesarStone® is non-porous, it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra smooth surface without polishing. And it never needs sealing. Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No. As with any surface, CaesarStone® can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties. Do not use products that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or strippers. Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaner 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.
