Made of up to 90% quartz, Caesarstone surfaces offer an incredibly durable and long-lasting interior solution. With the help of our expert team, we’ve put together handy tips to help keep your Caesarstone surface looking like new.

Every Day Cleaning

For routine cleaning, we recommend wiping the surface with clean warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and a clean damp cloth, followed by drying the surface with a clean towel or microfibre cloth. Staining agents like tea, coffee and red wine are easily removed with a diluted bleach as found in mould removers like Exit Mould.

Polishing

As Caesarstone is virtually non-porous, it should never be polished or sealed – it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface without polishing or sealing. Granite and Marble sealers applied to a Caesarstone surface will compromise the performance of the surface.

Special Considerations for Sleek Concrete

The Caesarstone Concrete finish designs are just as stain and scratch resistant as our polished surfaces. However, due to the Concrete Matte Finish found on Sleek Concrete, marks are more visible for this design. This means more regular cleaning maybe required.

Special Considerations for Fresh and Raw Concrete

Fresh Concrete and Raw Concrete feature random pigments which may not be evident in a smaller sample. Viewing a large sample is recommended prior to choosing either of these colours.

Special Considerations for Rough Finish

There are no special cleaning requirements for Rough Finish designs, as per our Care and Maintenance Guide. However, please note that exposed edge surfaces on 20mm tops, bowl cut outs and reverse of the slabs will not have the rough textured finish.

Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No.

As with any surface, Caesarstone can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals or rapid temperature changes. Do not use products that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or stripper. Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaner that have high alkaline/pH levels. To avoid damage from heat, we always recommend placing hot items on a chopping board or heat trivet.

Caesarstone Cream Cleanser

Caesarstone Cream Cleanser has been specially formulated to remove the most stubborn stains such as red wine or beetroot while taking care of your Caesarstone surfaces. It is also suitable for cleaning sinks and taps, baths and basins, shower recesses, tile surfaces and cook tops. Refer to cleaning instructions on the Cream Cleanser bottle.
