Neolith Cleaning & Maintenance Tips
To maintain the pristine condition of your Neolith countertop, follow these cleaning guidelines. Start by using a microfiber cloth to remove dust from the surface. If necessary, clean your Neolith countertop daily. Wash it with warm water and a manufacturer-recommended dose of detergent, avoiding products containing hydrofluoric acid and its derivatives.
Rinse with warm water and dry using a cloth or similar material. In case of spills, it is crucial to immediately dry them. Prompt cleaning and drying make stain removal easier. Avoid using waxes, oily soaps, impregnating agents, or hydro-oil repellents as they are unnecessary for Neolith. Some detergents available in the market contain waxes or polishing additives that may leave an oily film on the surface of Neolith after multiple washes.
Special Caution for Ceramic Knives: Please note that ceramic knives have the potential to scratch the surface of Neolith, regardless of its finish, just like they can scratch other surfaces within the same product category or other categories.
Edges: Neolith is a remarkably durable material designed to resist stains, heat, UV rays, scratches, and more. However, it is important to exercise caution around the edges of a Neolith countertop, as with any product in the sintered category, to prevent heavy impacts that may lead to chipping.
TIP Do not hit your Neolith countertop with a blunt and heavy objects. It could chip or even break (the edges are the most sensitive to physical damage).
TIP During treatment, closely examine the spot. If the spot is still there, but is lighter or reduced, you know the treatment is working. Keep applying until the stain is completely gone.
Certain substances may not be effectively removed through standard cleaning methods, requiring specific procedures based on their nature. The duration for which the substance remains on the surface is crucial, and it is recommended to clean the area promptly. By doing so, the substance is prevented from drying out, facilitating easier removal.
Acid: Acidic cleaning products: descalers, cement removers…Alkaline: Basic cleaning products: ammonia, degreasers…Solvent: Universal solvent, thinner, turpentine, acetone, alcohol...Oxidant: Diluted hydrogen peroxide or bleach
