Cabinet countertop cleaning and maintenance

- 2021-10-28-

Cabinet countertops can be roughly divided into four categories: natural stone countertops, artificial stone countertops, refractory decorative board countertops and stainless steel countertops. Regardless of the type of countertop, keep the surface dry as much as possible after use.


Natural stone countertop
Maintenance: When there are stains on the countertop, wipe it off in time to prevent the stains from penetrating into the interior through natural fine lines.
In order to prevent the countertop from cracking, avoid heavy objects hitting the countertop and direct contact with overheated objects during use.

Cleaning: Use a soft scouring pad instead of a toluene cleaner, otherwise it will be difficult to remove the white spots. When removing scale, do not use strong acid toilet powder, dilute hydrochloric acid, etc., otherwise it will damage the glaze and make it lose its luster.

Artificial stone countertop
Maintenance: The artificial stone countertops should be prevented from bleaching and scale in the water from making the countertops lighter and affecting their appearance. In actual use, avoid direct contact with high temperature objects.

Cleaning: Since there are no fine lines, it has strong resistance to paint, stains, etc., and it is easier to clean. But the texture is too soft, so you must not use abrasive cleaners.

Refractory decorative board countertop

Maintenance: After use, you should wipe off the stagnant water and water stains as soon as possible to avoid long-term water immersion to prevent deformation of the surface of the table. When using, avoid sharp objects directly hitting the table, and when using knives, put a cutting board on the table. The hot pan cannot be placed on the countertop immediately after cooking.

Cleaning: Use a soft cleaning cloth as much as possible, and do not use high-hardness cleaning tools to avoid damage to the veneer. Do not put dyes or hair dyes directly on the countertop, and stubborn stains can be cleaned with neutral detergents.

Stainless steel countertop
Maintenance: Chemical effects have corrosive effects on the countertops of many materials. For example, the stainless steel countertops may rust if they are exposed to salt. Therefore, you should also pay attention to avoid placing items such as soy sauce bottles directly on the countertops.

Cleaning: Do not use acidic and abrasive cleaning agents. At the same time, avoid using high-hardness cleaning tools such as steel balls. Excessive cleaning tools can easily cause surface fluffing and surface scratches.
