SEH Sintered Stone care and maintenance

As with all sintered stone worktops, SEH Sintered Stone is effortless to keep clean and doesn’t require maintenance. And as it’s stain, scratch, abrasion, and temperature resistant, it looks after itself.

However, you can do a few things to keep your worktop hygienically clean and looking like new for decades. Simply follow the instructions below.

How to clean SEH Sintered Stone countertops

General cleaning
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the surface with a dry cloth, then clean it with Cif Actifizz or a similar cleaner using a green and yellow washing-up sponge. Afterwards, dry the surface with a cloth.

Removing aggressive stains
Thanks to SEH Sintered Stone’s non-porous surface, nothing will permanently stain your worktop. However, you should wipe up spillages immediately, especially wine, coffee, or anything acidic or alkaline based, as these will take more work to remove if they’re left on the surface for an extended period.

If you get a stubborn stain, remove it with Cif cream or equivalent, gently cleaning the area in a circular motion.

Take care when handling chemicals
Always check the instructions when using any chemical products on your worktop. Some chemicals may not be suitable for use on stone, and some may need to be diluted:

Don’t use specialist worktop cleaning products
Many specialist worktop cleaners claim to enhance shine and protect your work surface. However, we recommend you don’t use these on sintered stone worktops. 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

Heat exposure
SEH Sintered stone is temperature-resistant, so you can place hot pans directly onto the surface without causing damage.

Avoid scratches
Although Sintered Stone 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.
