How to Use, Care, and Maintain Your Neolith Worktops?

Mon, Aug, 2017 Jesus Alberto Mouzo
Neolith worktops have revolutionised the surface industry for an eternity. As strong and resistant as these surfaces are, they still require minimal care and maintenance on your part. Even the best performing materials can become prone to permanent stains, chipping, scratching or breaking if you are not minimally careful. So, here is the proper use, care, and maintenance guide for Neolith worktops.
Care Neolith Worktops

Using Neolith

These worktops are created with an insight into every desirable place that they can be used, this includes- food preparation areas, coffee tables, dining tables, bathroom, sauna, etc. All Neolith kitchen worktops are very easy to clean, nothing penetrates this material, so, food scraps or deposited waste fail to leave a stain, and it always guarantees a hygienic product. In most of the cases, the cleaning process involves using only a damp cloth. If you encounter a stain caused by food and other substances used in the kitchens, such as lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, wine, coffee, these are easily removed. Likewise, placing hot pots and pans do not discolour the surface either. If a damp cloth does not clean the marks initially found on your Neolith surfaces, try using a window cleaning spray which can be purchased at any major supermarket. This, combined with a kitchen towel should clean the marks and suit the daily maintenance regime for your Neolith worktops.

Proper Care for Neolith

Take caution when using ceramic knives, which may scratch the surface. An authorised supplier should inform you of the proper care procedures, such as MKW Surfaces in London who are approved suppliers of Neolith surfaces in the United Kingdom. To rid the surface of general stains, use only the suggested detergents. Some products may not be easily removed with a normal cleaning operation; specific procedures may be required depending on the severity of the stain. It also depends on other factors such as the amount of time a substance has remained on the surface, because affected areas must be cleaned as soon as possible. Preventing stains from drying is usually the best course of action.
  • If the type of stain is a rust/lime/cement/plaster/aluminium scratches- then use an acidic detergent.
  • For a grease/oil/ink/coffee/epoxy glue/candle wax/resins/permanent marker, use a solvent.
  • Use an oxidant for fruit juice/blood/iodine/ink.

Make special considerations with edges:

It is the edges that require a special attention and you must avoid heavy impacts around worktop edges that could induce chipping.  It is always advisable to be aware of the places where worktop edges tend to chip the most: these are by the sink cut out and above the dishwasher, when taking pots and pans in-and-out of it. For some reason, once users are aware of the areas that are the most prone to chipping, the occurrences reduce by a large percentage. To clean and maintain a Neolith porcelain worktop, use a clean, dry absorbent cloth immediately after the spill on the surface.
  • For stains that are set-in, pour warm water to loosen a stain and then remove it with a clean cloth.
  • Use only soft fibre pad that is suitable to clean glass, kitchen appliance and non-stick frying pan.
Also, it is better to use cloths, pads, napkins and glass coasters to place cooking pots on the Neolith worktop surface. To avoid scratching, do not pull or drag kitchenware, pans and appliances. Also, refrain from cutting food directly on the worktop. Although Neolith does not scratch easily, heavy objects and industrial tools may damage it when impacted with sheer weight.
