Aurea Stone – Maintenance
Our Care & Maintenance Advice
Stone benchtops are one of the best ways to create a classy or contemporary feel to your space. They’re undeniably versatile and durable however to ensure they stay in their best condition, it’s important that you maintain and properly clean them.
- Warm water with a mild detergent and a clean, soft cloth is suitable for everyday cleaning. We recommend using a separate soft, dry, clean cloth to dry the surface after cleaning.
- Diluted methylated spirits in a spray bottle can be used as an alternative cleaner, wiped with a dry cloth. We recommend using 70% Methylated spirits to 30% water ratio.
- Prevention is the best cure. Ensure you clean all spills and marks as soon as possible. Do not allow spills to sit for long periods of time.
- Only use Ph Balanced (6Ph-8Ph) cleaning products to clean your benchtop.
- Do not use scourers or steel wool on your benchtop. Do not use anything abrasive. Do not use abrasive cleaning products.
- It is a good idea to use a soft cloth reserved just for cleaning your benchtops. Avoid using your dishwashing cloth as residue will build up over time making the top appear dull or dirty.
- Do not use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners or tile and tub cleaners.
- Do not expose your benchtops to solvents, nail polish etc.
- Do not stand on your benchtops.
- Do not use electric frying pans on reconstituted stone benchtops. Please refer to the manufacturer’s brochures for their care advice and warranty terms. Use a trivet or thick timber chopping board to protect the benchtops.
