Smartstone Care and Maintenance

By November 12, 2019 Smartstone

Smartstone quartz surfaces are designed to offer high performance
with low maintenance, and being non-porous it will never need
sealing or waxing. Only a little commonsense is needed to care
for your Smartstone surface.

Stain Resistance
Smartstone has been tested by the CSIRO, and due to its low moisture absorption, is resistant to stains caused by wine, fruit juices, liquid food colouring, tea and spices with strong colours.

Damaged Benchtop Edges Or Surfaces
A damaged benchtop edge or surface (including the stone edge for an under-mount sink) is not indicative
of defective material.
The Smartstone 15-year Limited Warranty does not cover edge or surface damage, such as chipping or scratching caused by wear and tear or negligence.

Stubborn Stains and Dried Spills
For dried spills, remove solids first. A wet cotton cloth is recommended for any stubborn stains. Avoid forceful scrubbing as this may result in a loss of shine. Rinse well with water.
It may be slightly more difficult to remove stains from the surfaces in Smartstone’s Naturale Collection which are not sealed or highly polished.
Do not use bleach on or near a Smartstone surface.
Smartstone is intended for interior applications only. Smartstone should not be used outdoors. The Smartstone Limited Warranty does not cover exterior applications, where Smartstone is exposed to weather conditions. Exposure to direct sunlight may result in a colour change and it is therefore recommended that exposure to direct sunlight is limited.

Heat Resistance
Placing hot items directly onto your Smartstone benchtop is not Recommended. Although Smartstone has high heat resistance, excessive localised heat may result in damage to your Smartstone due to thermal shock.
