- Everyday Cleaning
Because all Talostone® surfaces are high in density and low in porosity, normal cleaning with a damp cloth and mild detergent is all that is required to maintain your benchtops.
We recommend wiping the benchtop surface with a soft cloth while the spills are still damp. If further cleaning is needed, apply a spray of mild detergent and leave for 2-3 minutes then wipe off with a soft, clean cloth. More stubborn stains can be removed with a small amount of a non-abrasive cleaner applied to a damp, soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge. We recommend you do not spray the cleaner directly onto the benchtop. The area should then be wiped using a circular motion then rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a soft cloth.
We recommend thorough cleaning of your Talostone® surface on a regular basis to keep it looking as-new.
We do not recommend using abrasive cleaners or pads on our polished-finish surfaces as this could damage the surface finish and reduce the surface shine.
Leather Honed and Honed surfaces traditionally require more daily maintenance than standard or polished finishes. With a Leather Honed or Honed finish, there is more surface area so marks, stains and other signs of daily living will show more easily on these surfaces. Most marks or stains can be removed easily usng non-abrasive cleaning products as above.
- Removing Hard Stains
If a stain was unnoticed and accidentally left overnight it may become dry and difficult to clean. We recommend spraying the area with warm water and leaving it for 5 minutes. Once the dried residue become soft, it can be removed with a dry, soft cloth. If the stain proves to be stubborn, a mild cleaning cream and a damp cloth may be used, working in a circular motion. Please apply the cleaning cream to the cloth rather than directly onto the surface.
- Heat Tolerance
Talostone® engineered stone contains natural quartz and this allows the surface to tolerate brief exposures to moderately hot temperatures. However, as with all stone surfaces, any sudden or rapid temperature change can cause thermal shock, discolouration or damage so we recommend caution and we do not suggest hot pots or pans be placed directly on the surface.
- Scratch Resistant
Because all Talostone® surfaces are engineered they are highly scratch resistant and durable. But the surface is not indestructible and any stone can be damaged by sharp or metal objects. We strongly recommend the use of a cutting board to avoid damage to your Talostone® surface.
- Cleaning Agents to Avoid
All Talostone® surfaces are engineered to the highest chemical resistance levels available however, strong chemicals and solvents may permanently damage the slab. We do not recommend the use of any strong caustic chemical cleaners. If your Talostone® surface is accidentally exposed to such chemicals, rinse the area immediately with clean water to neutralise the effect.
