Dekton® care and maintenance

One of the many great benefits of a Dekton® worktop is that it’s effortless to keep clean and doesn’t need any maintenance at all. In addition, it’s stain, scratch, abrasion and temperature resistant, so it really looks after itself.

Simply follow the instructions below to keep your worktop hygienically clean and looking like new.

How to clean Dekton® worktops

General cleaning
To clean Dekton®, we recommend using warm soapy water or Cif Actifizz cleaner with a green and yellow washing-up sponge.

Removing aggressive stains
Thanks to Dekton’s® non-porous surface, nothing will permanently stain your worktop. However, some substances are resistant to standard cleaners or, if left on the surface for a long time, may take more effort to remove. Therefore, we recommend using cream detergents with abrasive particles or solvents (acetone or a universal solvent).

Other safe cleaners

  • Acid cleaning products, including any low-pH cleaners or descaling agents
  • Alkaline products, including basic cleaning agents and ammonia
  • Solvents, including universal solvent, turpentine (white spirit), acetone and alcohol
  • Oxidants, including hydrogen peroxide and diluted bleach.

Don’t use specialist worktop cleaning products
There are many specialist worktop cleaners available that claim to enhance shine and protect your work surface. However, when it comes to stone worktops, we recommend you don’t use these. This is because they can lead to a build-up of chemicals on the surface that can damage your worktop over time.

How to care for your worktop

Avoid knocks
Although Dekton® is an extremely hardwearing surface, heavy knocks should be avoided in exposed areas, such as corners, edges and bevels.

Heat exposure
Dekton® is highly temperature resistant, so you can place hot pans, baking trays and hot electrical appliances directly on the surface without extra protection

Avoid scratches
Although Dekton® is scratch-resistant, it is not scratch-proof. So, while it will withstand everyday scratches and scrapes, we recommend using a chopping board when cutting with sharp knives.
