Sintered Collection

To help you keep your Smartstone benchtops clean and in top condition, follow our simple cleaning guide.

Care and Maintenance

Regular cleaning

By following a few simple steps, cleaning and maintaining your porcelain surface from the Smartstone Sintered Collection is relatively easy and will keep your stone benchtop looking as good as new. The following cleaning and maintenance tips apply to both Matt and Suede finishes.

Cleaning your surface on a regular basis will keep it looking its best. For day-to-day cleaning, use a general-purpose cleaner or soapy warm water and wipe with a soft cloth or sponge.

Stubborn stains and dried spills

It is important to clean spills as soon as possible. For more stubborn stains, dried spills, and surface marks it may be necessary to use a specific cleaning product.

High durability. Low maintenance.

Offering superior durability and performance, Smartstone’s porcelain benchtops require very little maintenance. They are virtually non-porous and are highly resistant to stains, chips, scratches, chemicals, heat, bacteria, mould, and mildew, making them an ideal choice for both kitchens and bathrooms as well as outdoor applications.

Resistant to stains

Smartstone Sintered Collection has been quality tested and, due to its low moisture absorption, it is resistant to stains caused by wine, fruit juices, liquid food colouring, tea and spices with strong colour.

Scratch resistant

While it is possible to chop directly on Smartstone benchtops with non-ceramic knives, we always recommend using a chopping board for two reasons:
a) to protect the condition and sharpness of your knife blade and
b) to prevent marks from the metal. These can be removed but avoidance is an easier option.

Heat proof

Smartstone Sintered Collection is extremely resistant to large fluctuations in heat and cold, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Placing a hot pot or pan on the surface will not damage the benchtop. For safety reasons and to avoid accidents, we recommend using a trivet or heat mat.
