care and maintenance EuroStone Quartz surfaces have been designed to require minimum maintenance. The product is non porous and resists most stains.

Polished Surfaces
Simply wipe the surface using a cloth or sponge with soap and warm water to maintain the beauty and shine. For more stubborn food stains, use a multipurpose house cleaner or soft scrub and wipe with soap & water. Adhered material such as gum or paint can be removed by scraping with a sharp blade and then clean with a cleaning agent. Do not use paint thinners or Varnish removers.

Grain & StoneRoc finish Stones
This surface may be cleaned with a sponge and soap for everyday maintenance. Do not rub hard with a scouring pad as this action may cause blemish marks on the surface. Also note that grease leaves marks on the darker Grain colors, but these marks can be easily removed using a mild detergent. It is recommended that the Grain & StoneRoc be sealed with special suitable for this Quartz finish (Please inquire).

Jaipur & Lunare Textured Stones
Jaipur models (Anis,Pepper,Vanilla,Ginger,Thyme,Chili, Olive) & Lunare models ( Aster, Lunex, Syder ) are cleaned as much as the Grain & StoneRoc finish Stones. Oils in the kitchen will enhance the color of this honed & textured surface. If left for a long period,Tea, Coffee, Red Wine, Markers, Ink & Mustard may leave a mark. This will easily clean with soft scrub with bleach. To minimize this effect, it is recommended that this surface is sealed with a special penetrating Eurostone sealer model suitable specifically for Quartz (Please inquire).

Mother of Pearl (Lido, Pittiperla,Poloperla): This natural product (mostly calcium carbonate) is unpredictable in composition and needs extra care. The mother of pearl shell is softer than the Quartz material and may react with acids. Avoid acids and acidic cleaners on these models (Neutral cleaners or alcohol are best used to clean). Acidic foods such as lemon or tomato juice, Vinegar, red wine, yogurt etc. should not be left on these surfaces and should be wiped off as quickly as possible. It is not uncommon for some smaller pieces to dislodge from the slab. This does not constitute a defect and the void can be filled with a suitable material.

What to Avoid.

Chemicals. Avoid exposing your EuroStone surface to strong chemicals and solvents, especially solvents that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride such as paint strippers. Avoid aggressive cleaning agents such as oven, furniture cleaners and bleach. Permanent markers, ink, lipstick and other coloring agents may leave marks that will need aggressive cleaning. Pure concentration of Acetone and Mineral Spirit can safely be used to clean Eurostone surfaces.

Intense Heat. Although EuroStone is extremely resistant to moderately hot temperatures, it may be damaged by sudden or prolonged extreme heat. This can cause thermal shock resulting in a crack. Extreme heat may also discolor some of the darker colors. Therefore it is recommend that you avoid direct contact with hot items. Trivets or hot pads should always be used. It is also not advisable to place electric fry-pans, Kettles or woks directly on the stone surface for the same reasons, as poorly designed appliances may overheat.

Scratches. EuroStone is extremely scratch resistant but not indestructible. Do not use as a cutting board.

Special Models with glass. (Glass, Tuttifruitti, Allegro, Campiello, Greenbell) Smaller pieces of glass may dislodge from the slab. Again this does not constitute a defect and the void can be filled.
