Silestone Care & Maintenance

A distinct advantage of your Silestone quartz surfaces is that it is easy to keep clean and maintain. In most cases
it just needs to be wiped over with a dry cloth to remove the dirt. Instructions are given below for enjoying your Silestone
quartz countertops in optimal conditions.

For Silestone Quartz countertops with a polished finish, we recommend you use a mild household cleaner, such as
409, Fantastik, Lysol, or Windex. In case of stubborn spills or stains, soak the area for up to 10 minutes with one of the
above cleaners and vigorously wipe away with a Scotch Brite Pad.

Silestone with a Leathered finish does show daily living more frequently and therefore requires more daily
maintenance than other Silestone quartz products. For your daily cleaning we recommend Countertop Magic.
Follow instructions on the bottom of the cleaner.

The Natural quartz in Silestone makes it the toughest interior surface available on the market. It resists scratching,
staining, and scorching better than any other natural stone or solid surface. Do avoid excesssive force or pressure
because that may mar or chip the surface. Don't worry about spills from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar,
makeup, and many other common household products; just avoid harsh chemicals. Don't worry about dropping a lit
match onto your Silestone countertop; it wont scorch. Make sure to use Trivets when placing any hot items to avoid
thermal shock.

The following will harm Silestone quartz: Drano, Liquid Plumr, oven cleaners and floor strippers. Do not use these or
any other harsh chemicals on your Silestone surface.

Do not use crock pots or electric skillets while in direct contact with your Silestone Surfaces. Always place them on a
Trivet or cutting board to protect your countertop. (Review your electric appliance manual as a reference.) Silestone is
a stone product. As with any natural stone, certain exposure to heat may cause cracks due to thermal shock.
