Tips to Keep Your Dekton and Silestone Surfaces Looking New

 

In this section, you will find the best tips to keep your Dekton and Silestone surfaces as good as new.

Dekton:

Dekton is Cosentino’s ultra-compact high-performance surface, consisting of a sophisticated blend of more than twenty minerals extracted from nature. An innovative, state-of-the-art mineral particle sintering process compacts its internal structure to create a Carbon Neutral surface of high durability and strength.

Your Dekton worktop is resistant to stains, scratches, knocks, and high temperatures from hot objects and remains unaffected by UV rays. Its almost zero porosity will give you peace of mind, as it is easier to maintain.

Silestone:

Silestone is another premium surface by Cosentino, made from natural quartz and a small amount of resin. This combination creates a highly durable, non-porous surface that is resistant to stains, scratches, and impacts. Silestone also features unique bacteriostatic protection, ensuring a hygienic surface ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.

Maintenance Tips for Both Surfaces:

  1. Daily Cleaning:

    • Use a soft cloth or sponge with a mild detergent and warm water to clean the surface. Avoid using abrasive cleaners that can damage the finish.
  2. Stain Removal:

    • For tougher stains, use a pH-balanced cleaner or a specialised stone cleaner. Apply the cleaner, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe away with a soft cloth.
  3. Avoiding Damage:

    • Although both surfaces are highly resistant, it is wise to use cutting boards when chopping food and trivets for hot pots and pans to maintain their pristine condition.
  4. Preventing Scratches:

    • Avoid dragging heavy or sharp objects across the surface. While both Dekton and Silestone are scratch-resistant, taking precautions will help preserve their appearance.
  5. Handling Spills:

    • Wipe up spills immediately, especially those from acidic substances like lemon juice, vinegar, or wine, to prevent any potential damage or staining.
  6. Regular Inspections:

    • Periodically check the surfaces for any signs of damage or wear. Promptly addressing any issues will ensure the longevity of your worktops.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your Dekton and Silestone surfaces looking as beautiful as the day they were installed. Their advanced composition and durability make them a fantastic choice for any home, providing both aesthetic appeal and practical benefits.
