Porcelanosa XTONE worktops care and maintenance

Porcelanosa XTONE worktops are incredibly durable and can easily withstand the demands of a busy kitchen. So, when it comes to cleaning and maintenance, there’s not much to do other than clean it after use.

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

How to clean Porcelanosa XTONE worktops

General cleaning
To clean XTONE worktops, we recommend using warm soapy water and a soft sponge. However, just use a damp cloth for polished and silk finishes (especially for solid and light colours). After cleaning, dry the worktop with a cloth that doesn’t contain waxing agents.

Removing aggressive stains
Porcelanosa XTONE worktops have a non-porous surface, which means nothing will permanently stain them. However, some substances may require more than just soapy water. As XTONE is resistant to chemical attack, it can handle being cleaned with various chemicals, such as ammonia, bleach, acid detergents, acetone and hydrochloric acid. However, always refer to the maintenance guide provided to check which cleaner is best for your specific stain.

Prevent polished and silk finishes from losing their shine
Polished and silk finishes can lose their lustre over time. To prevent this from happening, clean them occasionally with a water-based polishing cream which helps to restore their shine.

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 maintain Porcelanosa XTONE worktops

Heat exposure
XTONE is resilient to high temperatures, so hot objects such as saucepans, baking trays and electrical appliances can be placed directly on the surface without extra protection.

Avoid scratches
Although XTONE 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.
