Image: Caesarstone, TTS Granite, Care, Maintenance, home improvement, quartz, marble, graniteA 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, use a nonabrasive cleaning product such a Method Daily Polish Spray or Method Daily Stone Surface Wipes. Adhered materials such as food, gum, nail polish, or dried paint can be scraped away with a plastic putty knife; metal marks left by the putty knife can be removed with Method Daily Polish Spray or Method Daily Stone Surface Wipes.  Thoroughly rinse the surface with clean water to remove residue.

Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills  Use a soft cloth with warm water and mild soap or detergent.  If needed, apply common, nonabrasive, household cleaners such a Soft Scrub Liquid Gel with Bleach or Comet Soft Cleanser Scratch-Free Cream with Bleach.  To avoid dulling the surface's shine, make sure to use a nonabrasive cleaner.

NOTE: Do not use cleaning products that have a high pH level (over 8), such as oven cleaner or paint removers, as they may etch and damage the surface.

Honed Finish Cleaning and Maintenance  Please understand that Honed finishes will require more daily maintenance than our polished finishes.  Since there is more exposed surface area with honed finished, metal marks, fingerprints and other signs of daily living will show on hones material.  Most of these marks can be easily removed with little efforts and cleaning products such as Soft Scrub Liquid Gel.  For tough stains, work the area with a Scotch-Brite Blue Pad.

Heat Resistance  Caesarstone can tolerate moderately hot temperatures for brief periods of time.  Prolonged exposure will result in discoloring or other types of damage.

Please inform your customers that they should avoid direct contact between very hot pots and the Caesarstone surface.  Excessive localized heat may damage the surface or cause hairline cracks to appear.  We always require the use of an insulator/hot pad/trivet especially when using cooking units such as electric fry pans/works/kettles.

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 trichloroethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or strippers.

Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents such as over/grill cleaners dishwasher agents that have high alkaline/pH levels.  Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue.  Should your surface accidently be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.
