Maintain your new kitchen worktops

Your gleaming stone surface has introduced a sense of opulence and luxury to your space and everything feels fresh and exciting. You’re finally motivated to make your cooking dreams a reality and find yourself spending an increasing amount of time in the kitchen. But how can you hold on to that feeling long after installation?

As you know, all our worktops are designed to last a lifetime. So, to keep your worksurfaces looking their best, we recommend following our handy tips on care and maintenance.

Care and maintenance tips

icon-routine

Routine cleaning and maintenance

Stone worktops are durable and resistant to household stains and many can be treated with a damp sponge and microfibre cloth.

For more stubborn stains we recommend you use the supplied cleaner* to clean our surfaces.

icon-grease-stains

Grease stains

Use a paper towel to absorb the grease but avoid wiping so as not to spread it on your worktop. Then apply the supplied cleaner* or a diluted, mild soapy solution onto the stain and rub it with a sponge until it disappears. Next, rinse with a generous amount of water and remember to thoroughly dry the affected area. 

icon-limescale

Limescale

Use cleaning vinegar (white vinegar is fine) and a damp sponge to scrub away the limescale. If the stain persists, repeat the process. Avoid using rough cleaning brushes on your stone surface. If necessary, work the solution onto the surface and leave for a few minutes. Always rinse with plenty of water and dry with a soft lint-free cloth.

icon-difficult-stains

Cleaning difficult stains

For difficult stains, apply some of the supplied cleaner* (or an alternative appropriate cleaner) onto the affected area and leave for two minutes.

Next, scrub with a gentle scouring pad (white type - non scratch), rinse with plenty of water and dry with a clean lint-free cloth. 

* Other cleaners may also be used but must not contain bleach and must be non-abrasive. To be safe, check each cleaning product first on an inconspicuous area, to ensure that it doesn't damage the surface.

icon-heat-damage

Heat damage

When using pots and pans and other items that give off heat, do not place them directly onto the surface. Instead, you should use a trivet or tablemat (a rubber one, if possible) until they have cooled down. Sharp differences in temperature (between hot and cold) can damage the surface.

icon-impact

Impact

One of the most notable features of these surfaces is high impact resistance. However, you should still take additional care, especially with area that are less resistant, such as worksurface edges and sink cut outs.

 

icon-products

Products

Products such as solvent or acetone should not be used for cleaning worktops or slabs.
Abrasive scouring pads should not be used. It is advisable to use a microfibre cloth or damp paper towel.

icon-general

In general use

Do not leave water on the surface for long periods of time. The most susceptible areas are those that are close to sinks.
Do not use sharp objects to cut directly on the worktop surface. Instead, use other protective materials such as chopping boards.

Our worktops are installed to last a lifetime

At Bellagio Marble Ideas, we design all of our worktops with lasting quality in mind.

As such, you shouldn’t have to reseal your stone worktops unless you really want to. Because our stone is non-porous, you should be able to keep it looking pristine and stain free, simply by following our expert tips.

You can choose to reseal if you want to, as this will add an extra layer of protection. Resealing is affordable and won’t affect your stone’s appearance – but you can rest assured that it is entirely optional and your worktops will continue to shine with or without it.
