Care and Maintenance of Marble Worktops 

• All Classico Marble worktops leave the factory treated with a sealant that penetrates the stone and reduces the risk of staining. 
• Your Marble worktop should be cleaned regularly. We would advise using mild soapy water, rinsed then dried with a soft clean cloth. 
• Do not leave spillages on your worktops, wipe off using a kitchen towel many food products contain acids and colourings which if left, will dull or stain the appearance of your surfaces. These include ketchups, sauces, juices, citrus fruits; vinegar’s, squash, wines and spirits. If in doubt wipe it off. 
• Never use abrasive cleaning products on your surfaces. Also avoid bleach and alkaline based products. 
• Never use lime scale removers on your worktops as it will damage them. 
• Dry your tops after use as this will reduce the risk of lime scale build up. 
• Never cut and chop directly on your worktops as this will scratch over time. Use a chopping board, it will also save the edges on your knifes. 
• Never subject your worktops to excessive heat. When putting hot pans directly onto them, use hot rods or a trivet. Exposure to excessive heat can cause ring marks from pans, and thermal shock will in most cases crack the work top. 
• Induction Hobs, please note these are a relatively new development and the way they work is to heat the pan rather than its contents. This means the pans are significantly hotter and even more care is required to ensure they are not put directly on the stone. 
• Avoid impacts with heavy objects, they will chip edges. Place things carefully in under mount sinks avoiding the stone edges. 
• Avoid point loading or excessive loading of the worktops. They are fit for purpose as a kitchen work top, they are supported normally front and back on Carcass of the cupboards. Particular care should be taken to avoid leaning near the cut outs for the hob and sink, do not sit, kneel or stand on them, they can break. 
• If you chip your worktops, in most cases a repair can be achieved, but depending on the material it is still likely to be visible (send a picture and we will provide an estimate of cost). 
• Colour and veining of marble stone can vary widely and depending on the movement within the pattern, will not be indicative of a sample provided. We would recommend seeing a picture of the slab and in cases where a strong veined material is chosen, viewing the slabs prior to production is essential.
