Marble and Granite are easier to maintain than you’d expect. Warm water, mild dish washing liquid and a soft cloth clean up most spills on both surfaces. Granite is a worry-free surface, requiring few special precautions. It is extremely durable, stain-resistant and easy to care for. Hot pots and pans won’t damage it. It won’t chip, crack or scratch under normal use. Cutting boards are recommended when slicing bread, meats or vegetables to protect your knives from becoming dull.
Marble isn’t quite as worry-free as granite. It has a softer, less stain-resistant surface than granite and it should be treated like a fine piece of wood. Spills should be wiped up immediately, coaster should be placed under beverage glasses to avoid staining and etching. Marble is especially susceptible to damage from citric acids, alcohol and oils. With proper care, its beauty will last generations.
Its hard, nonporous surface makes CaesarStone simple to clean. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is all that is required to maintain its luster. If necessary, a non-abrasive cleanser such as Soft Scrub Liquid Gel with Bleach or Comet Gel can be used along with a green scrub pad such as Scotch-Brite. Adhered materials like food, gum, nail polish, or dried paint can be scraped away with a plastic putty knife; any marks left by the blade can be removed with Soft Scrub and a Scotch-Brite pad. Thoroughly rinse the surface with clean water to remove residue.
While CaesarStone does not require sealants or waxes to maintain its luster, occasional polishing with Soft Scrub Bleach Gel or Comet Gel will keep the quartz surfacing looking its best.
CaesarStone prides itself in providing our customers a virtually care-free surface, but as with any product, excessive abuse can harm its finish. With a small amount of care, your CaesarStone surface will look as great as the day you bought it for years to come.
