Engineered Stone

Everyday Cleaning

 

Caesarstone® surfaces require very little maintenance to keep them looking like new. For everyday, routine cleaning of Caesarstone® we recommend wiping the surface with warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and a clean damp cloth, or use our convenient Caesarstone® Cleaning Wipes or Caesarstone® Spray Cleaner.

 

Do not use the cloth you use to wash the dishes, as it may transfer oils and other contaminants to the Caesarstone® surface.

 

As Caesarstone® is virtually non-porous, it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra smooth surface which never needs polishing or sealing. Never attempt to polish the surface and avoid prolonged rubbing in one spot when cleaning.

 

To give your Caesarstone® surface a thorough clean or for removal of extra stubborn marks or spills, we recommend using Caesarstone® Cream Cleanser and a 3M™ Scotchbrite™ Non- Scratch Foam Scrub which can be used without damaging the stone. We suggest using this cleaning process regularly depending on the amount of traffic, use and surface application.

Always refrain from placing excessive weight on your Caesarstone® bench top. Excessive weight can also have an impact on the underlying cabinet structure.

Caesarstone® surfaces come factory polished to a high lustre, with the exception of our special Concrete finish. Due to Caesarstone’s high density and non-porous qualities, normal cleaning with a damp cloth will keep your Caesarstone® surface looking like the first day it was installed.

 

To avoid dulling the surface’s shine, make sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner such as Caesarstone® branded cream cleanser available to purchase from Shop Online or for further detailed information on cleaning please refer to the Caesarstone® Care & Maintenance Guidelines.

Caesarstone® is resistant to all kinds of cracks, chips, scratches and stains. However, like most materials, excessive force, high point loads, pressure or heat may cause damage to the surface. Like all surface materials Caesarstone® should be treated with care. Refer to our infographic to learn more about the properties of Caesarstone quartz surfaces.

Caesarstone® is composed of up to 93% natural quartz, providing it with superior hardness and strength. We always recommend using a cutting board to prevent damage to the surface, or dulling the knives.

Caesarstone® is heat resistant, however 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 for more than a few seconds then the heat source is too high. DO NOT PUT HOT COOKWARE DIRECTLY ON THE CAESARSTONE SURFACE. Therefore we always recommend placing hot pots, oven trays and fry pans directly from the oven or hot plate onto a wooden chopping board or heat trivet. We also recommend that electric fry pans and slow cookers are also used on a wooden chopping board.

No. Caesarstone® quartz surfaces are virtually non-porous, and you will never have to use a sealer or any other kind of wax.

The Caesarstone® Concrete Finish designs are just as stain and scratch resistant as our polished surfaces, never require sealing and are simple to clean.

However the Concrete matte finish doesn’t disguise marks as well as the polished designs, meaning more regular cleaning maybe required using the Caesarstone surface cleaning wipes or Caesarstone Spray Cleaner for daily use and Caesarstone Cream Cleanser and 3M™ non-scratch foam scrubber to provide a thorough all over surface clean as per the instructions in Caesarstone’s Care & Maintenance guide.  Most importantly, thoroughly rinsing off the Cream Cleanser off after cleaning.

 

It is extremely important that a Caesarstone Concrete colour benchtop is only ever wiped down using a clean cloth solely for that purpose. Don’t use a cloth used to wash dishes as it may impart oils and other contaminants to the concrete finish surface.

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 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.
