Silestone Kitchen Worktops – Cleaning & Maintenance

Silestone Kitchen Worktops

General Advice for Silestone Kitchen Worktops

  • Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

Silestone’ and ECO by Consention’ are low porous surfaces and therefore highly resistant to everyday domestic stains. For regular cleaning of Silestone or ECO by Consentino surfaces, Consentino S.A. recommends you use Q-Action. If Q-Action is not available, water and mild/neutral soap is the best option for regular cleaning.

  • Cleaning Stubborn Stains

Grease Stains– Apply Q-Action to the stain and leave for 2 minutes the gently scrub with a soft scouring pad (normally supplied for ceramic hobs) until it disappears. Rinse immediately with water and dry. If Q-Action is not available, use CIF Original Cream in the same way.

Limescale (glass marks)– Pour an anti-limescale product (like Viakal or similar) onto the surface and leave to act for 1 minute. Rinse with plenty of water and dry. Follow the instructions recommended by the manufacturer.

Do not use on any products (taps, sinks, etc) other than th worktop itself as it might damage the finish.

Silicone and Putty Marks– Using a blunt spatula and CleanColorsil or Solvent-based silicon remover (that does not contain dichloromethane) gently scrub with a soft scoring pad (normally supplied for ceramic hobs). Then rinse with plenty of water and dry. We recommend that the marks are removed at the time of installation.

Difficult Stains – For difficult stains, pour Q-Action (or CIF Original Cream) onto the affected area leaving it to act for 2 minutes. Next gently scrub with a soft scouring pad (for ceramic hobs), with plenty of water and dry.

Leather finish and Volcano texture counter top cleaning– For the regular cleaning of these surfaces with unpolished textures, Consentino recommends the use of Q-Action or water and mild soap. For stubborn stains use a non-scratch scouring pad without applying too much force. These textures are rougher and therefore more susceptible to marks making them high maintenance surfaces.

Do Not Use Abrasive Cleaners On Leather or Volcano Textures

Reaction to Knocks – One of the characteristics that makes these surfaces stand out is their high resistance to knocks. However, avoid striking areas of the surface that due to fabrication of design, may be slightly weaker (pointed corners, fine edges, etc).

Reaction to Heat – After using kitchen utensils such as frying pans, saucepans, etc, do not place them directly onto the surface. Leave them on top of a table-mat (if possible with rubber support) to cool down. The reasoning behind this is that the thermal shock caused by the difference in temperature (cold/hot) could damage the surface of the silestone worktops.
