Caesarstone quartz surfaces blend modern sophistication and beautiful design with unbeatable strength and durability. It keeps its beauty for many years with minimal maintenance – all that’s required is a simple care routine to maintain its good looks. Normally just warm water and a splash of mild detergent is all that’s required to keep it looking its best. Unlike other materials, there’s no wax and no sealing involved in maintaining Caesarstone.
Protection from hot temperatures
Caesarstone is more heat resistant, durable and hard-wearing than other stone surfaces, including most granites, marble and limestone. But it does need protection from very high temperatures (above 150°C or 300°F) or sudden extreme temperature changes.
Therefore, we suggest that hot pots and pans never be directly placed on the surface. We also recommend a hot pad or trivet be placed under cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock pots or toaster ovens
Stubborn Stains and Spills
Life’s inevitable spills and stains can usually be cleaned up effortlessly with mild detergent or cleaner and water. To remove stuck on materials, gently scrape away the excess with a plastic putty knife or non-scratch pad and then wipe with warm water. Nail varnish or chewing gum stains can be removed with denatured alcohol, rinsing thoroughly afterward.
For extra-stubborn stains, a non-scratch Scotch-BriteTM pad is recommended along with a non-abrasive cleaner, which won’t dull the surface shine.
It’s tough, but not indestructible
Like any other surface, Caesarstone can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that affect its physicalproperties.
Avoid the use of strong chemicals and solvents or highly abrasive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher polishing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels (pH 8.5 or higher). Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off thoroughly. Never clean your Caesarstone surface with products that contain Trichlorethane or Methylene Chloride, such as paint removers or strippers.
Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with warm water to neutralize the effect.
