Maintain and Care for your Benchtop

Engineered or manmade stone is made up of quartz, resins and pigments to create a non-porous stone surface. It is very durable and easy to look after. Simply wipe down with a soft cloth, mild soap and water on a daily basis. Apply a small amount of crème cleanser to a soft, damp cloth if you have a mark on the benchtop you wish to remove. It is also very wise to refer to each Manufacturer’s care and maintenance instructions that we have provided links to below. Engineered stone does not need to be sealed unlike natural granite.

Please see listed below links to each of the supplier’s care and maintenance instructions to assist you with looking after your new stone benchtop.
