Ceramic worktop maintenance
Ceramics is a material made of 100% natural components and it is highly appreciated in modern home design. This worktop is manufactured from ceramic slab treated at high temperature, cut in suitable size and edges and surface finished.
Ceramic worktops are scratch resistant, heat resistant and non-absorbent. These worktops are easy to clean and preserve their beauty for decades when properly maintained, and are therefore particularly suitable for homes with small children and pets.
For daily cleaning we recommend using damp (microfiber) cloth, warm water and either neutral (pH 7), mild alkaline (pH 8-10) or mild acidic (pH 4-6) detergent if necessary. You should avoid using highly acidic or bleach containing detergents for cleaning ceramic worktop.
Preventing and removing stains
Avoid spilling chemicals and corrosive substances on worktop. The best way to avoid staining is to remove dirt from worktop immediately, so that it would not dry and absorb in the material. Usually it is sufficient to use damp cloth, water and detergent.
In case of heavy staining, we recommend using special care and cleaning products designed for ceramic surfaces. After using the cleaning product, we recommend to wash the worktop again with clean water and detergent.
Avoiding heat damage and scratches
Ceramic worktops are heat resistant – hot ovenware does not cause discoloration or damage to the surface.
Although ceramic material is highly scratch resistant, we still recommend using cutting boards. You should also avoid dropping extremely heavy objects and mechanical impact on the worktop.
Ceramic worktops do not require impregnation (i.e. treatment with special sealant), because they do not absorb liquids.
