Care & Maintenance


Due to its practically zero porosity, the ultra-compact Dekton® surface is highly resistant to staining in day-to-day use and from chemical products, making it ideal for use as a kitchen worktop and as a surface for other kinds of work, both inside and out.

General Cleaning

For general cleaning, Cosentino recommends the use of Q-Action with a sponge or scouring pad. If this product is not available, the best option is to use a neutral soap and water.

Cleaning Stubborn Stains

In the case of aggressive stains, either from products that are resistant to normal cleaning agents or because they have remained on the work surface without being removed, we recommend using more specific products such as: cream detergents with abrasive particles or solvents (acetone or universal solvent type).

Solvents can include products such as universal solvent, turpentine (white spirit), acetone, alcohol etc.

Oxidants include products such as hydrogen peroxide and diluted bleach.

Prevention of Knocks

Although Dekton® is an extremely resistant surface, knocks should be avoided in areas which are more exposed (corners, edges, bevels etc.).

Heat Tolerance

Recipients such as frying pans, saucepans, casseroles and coffee makers etc. can be placed directly on the work surface after use.

Electrical apparatuses which give off heat can also be placed on the unprotected surface. Dekton®is designed to withstand utensil temperatures from domestic use.

  • Please avoid direct constant contact between worktops and metal areas of electric griddles and hobs which can occasionally occur due to incorrect installation.
  • Avoid very high temperature direct sources of heat such as fireplaces, chimneys, barbeques etc.
  • Avoid direct contact with a naked flame.
  • Do not carry out any form of mechanical work on the surface, such as polishing.
  • Avoid using metal scouring pads.
  • The use of this type of product can lead to the loss of the product guarantee.
