Care and maintenance

The ever-lasting finish of your granite, marble or CaesarStone requires only simple and routine care to maintain its good looks. Cleaning with a damp cloth and a little liquid detergent will do the job. Quartz based surfaces such as CaesarStone are heat resistant and highly impervious to stains, able to withstand exposure to tea, soda, wine, vinegar, lemon juice, and strongly coloured spices. Just wipe away and the surface is like new again.

Use these cleaners with a damp cloth or a pink non scratch scourer on your Caesar Stone tops

Caesarstone cleaner – This will get wine, curry, turmeric etc. off the Caesarstone (purchased from South Coast Granite)
Chemico liquid – Original scent (the lemon scent does not seem to work as well) in the bottle and NOT the tub – the tub is very abrasive. This can be purchased from any supermarket, Checkers, Spar, Pick ‘n Pay etc.
Windowlene – is an anti-static, de-greaser and shines the Caesarstone, it keeps the stone looking shiny. Especially for the darker colours where finger prints show up.

Care and maintenance

For ProQuartz coubter tops to retain their aesthetic appeal, simply wipe the worktops with warm water and a mild non-abrasive cleanser and rinse with clean water.

ProQuartz quartz surfaces require minimal maintenance. They are hard and non-porous and require no sealing to retain their shine and brilliance.

For tough marks on the stone, moisten a clean cloth with a non-abrasive cleaner and rub it into the mark, wipe and clean with a moist cloth to remove the cleaner residue.

ProQuartz is structurally more resistant to heat than other surfaces. However, like any other stone tops, excessive heat and thermal shock may cause damage. We recommend the use of a folded cloth, a wooden board or a trivet when placing a hot cooking pan or other cooking units on the surface.

Do not use cleaners that contain Pine Oil. If not thoroughly rinsed, these products can leave behind a residue of pine oil. The pine oil then attracts and holds dirt on the surface, eventually reducing the cleanliness of the surface and its appearance. Highly aggressive cleaning agents such as oven/grill cleaners and dishwasher polishing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels (pH 8.5 or higher) should also be avoided, as should abrasive scrubs/cleaners containing either soft or hard abrasive particles. Do not use cleaners that contain xylene, toluene, potassium hydroxide or caustic soda. Do not use paint removers or furniture strippers that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride.

 

Natural Stone (Granite and Marble)

Care and maintenance

Natural stone is cleaned with a damp cloth and liquid soap. Never use abrasive materials, bleach, anything amonia based as it  will ruin the polished surface.

Natural stone is porous and absorbs stains, Granite is more resilient than Marble but in both cases it is advised to mop up any spills as soon as possible to avoid any imperfections
