Silestone FAQ: Cleaning and Maintenance

A new kitchen worktop instantly updates the look of your kitchen and also adds value to your home. Today’s leading worktop material is Silestone, an engineered material that combines natural quartz with other resins. Because it combines beauty and practicality, it’s the ideal choice for kitchen worktops

Silestone has the look and feel of natural quartz thanks to its dense surfacing material, but has a slight advantage over granite. Like quartz, Silestone kitchen worktops do not require sealing.

Many consider Silestone as maintenance-free because of its non-porous surface that prevents spills from penetrating the surface and protects worktops from staining caused by lemon juice, coffee, vinegar, etc. It is definitely an extraordinarily hard and resilient material that can withstand the daily wear and tear of everyday kitchen activities.

How do I clean my Silestone kitchen worktop? You only need to regularly wipe the surface with soap and water in order to maintain its shine and aesthetic appeal for years to come. There are no special cleaning products necessary to keep glossy. In fact, bleach and other harsh chemicals should be avoided.

What is the daily upkeep for Silestone? Like any natural worktop material, Silestone should be cleaned after every use. Proper precaution should also be observed, such as placing hot objects directly on the surface.

Because of Silestone’s outstanding properties, it is the ideal kitchen worktop material. It is non-porous, offers beauty similar to that of a natural stone, comes in a wide array of colours and textures and is highly resistant to impact, which allows for flexibility in any kitchen when moving around objects such as trays, pans, pots, etc.
