Silestone requires very little maintenance. Simply wipe your
Silestone surface with soap and warm water on a regular basis
to maintain its beauty and shine for years to come.
To remove difficult spills, wipe the surface with warm water
and soap. If needed, apply a common household cleaner. For
stains that harden as they dry, such as food and gum, remove
by gently scarping off of surface (using a blade or putty
remover), and then clean using warm water and soap.
Extreme Heat Protection
Silestone is extremely resistant to heat, and can withstand
moderately high temperatures for brief periods of time without
being damaged. Although Silestone is more heat resistant than
any other stone surface, all stone can be damaged by sudden
and extreme temperature changes, especially near the edges.
For this reason, we recommend using a trivet or a hot pad
to protect your Silestone surface from extreme heat.
Chemicals to Avoid
Avoid exposing your Silestone surface to strong chemicals
and solvents. Items to avoid include: nail polish remover,
permanent markers or inks, oil soaps, and furniture cleaners
or paint strippers that contain trichlorethane or methylene
chloride. Also avoid exposing you Silestone surface to chemicals
with high alkaline/PH levels, such as oven cleaners.
Although Silestone is extremely scratch and heat resistant,
we recommend protecting your Silestone surface by using a
hot pad or trivet for extreme heat protection, and by using
a cutting board in order to avoid damage to your knives.
