If you are the proud owner of a Caesarstone countertop then you are truly lucky. This type of surface material probably has the least amount of maintenance requirement. This material is becoming increasingly popular in commercial and domestic buildings because they are so durable and easy to care for.

With the right care, these countertops can easily last a lifetime. Let’s take a look at how to take good care of your Caesarstone surfaces.

What is Caesarstone?

Caesarstone isn’t a natural stone type. It is one of the first and most popular brands for quartz countertops. This company has been operational since 1987 and produces its quartz products from 93% quartz and 7% polyresin. The company offers a huge variety of quartz tops in virtually any colour and many look exactly like natural stone.

There are also a number of other brands that manufacture quality quartz countertops and tiles but Caesarstone is by far the most popular brand.

Even though quartz tops are not made from 100% natural stone, they do offer plenty of the same qualities and can sometimes be much more affordable compared to natural stone.

How To Take Care of Ceaserstone Countertops

Quartz countertops are probably the easiest countertop material with regard to maintenance. The surface of this material is non-porous and as such, won’t absorb any liquids or oils that are spilled onto the surface. Here is a quick look at a general care method for these kitchen or bathroom surfaces.

General Cleaning

The very best way to clean quartz surfaces is with a mixture of mild detergent, warm water and a cloth or sponge. You can also use a surface cleaning spray instead of the soapy mixture. Wring the cloth out and wipe the surface of the engineered stone to remove dirt and spills. If you like, you can also pour water onto the surface to soften up some dried foods. Quartz is completely waterproof and won’t be damaged by moisture.

Once the top dries, it should be gleaming and clean.

Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills

Most spills are pretty easy to clean from quartz surfaces because very few things can cling to the smooth surface of this type of material. Stubborn stains or dried spills can sometimes be a little bit challenging to clean. For these types of messes, you can try to scrape away the materials with a putty knife. Next, you can use a soapy cloth to remove the leftover marks. 

If you are using a scraper to remove dried food from the surface then it is best to work carefully. Quartz is scratch-resistant but can be damaged if you work too roughly.

Protection from Heat Sources

The only weakness this type of surface has is heat. Caesarstone can be damaged by intense heat of over 150 degrees C. Because of this, it is best to never place a pot or pan directly on the surface since this can cause discolouration or damage.

Polishing or Sealing

There is no need to polish the surface of Caesarstone stone because it is non-porous. In fact, stone polishes may even compromise the integrity of the engineered stone. 

Scratches or Heat Stains

Scratches and heat stains can be buffed out with specialist equipment or resurfaced with a resin tip coat. It is crucial not to attempt these types of repairs yourself because you can easily end up damaging your stunning countertops
