High maintenance has no place in your high-traffic areas. The less time and energy it takes to clean your kitchen, the more time you have to enjoy entertaining, mealtimes, and more in the heart of your home. The easy-care convenience of Cambria is an added benefit to its beauty and it couldn’t be simpler to ensure your countertops remain as flawless as the day they were installed. Here are three things you need to know:
1. Keep it simple.
Harsh and heavy-duty cleaners are unnecessary with Cambria. For clean-up with ease, all you need is warm water and a soft cloth. Cambria is nonabsorbent and therefore hygienic; perfect for a hardworking countertop. A stain-resistant countertop means you can let that wine spill linger without any worries. If you wish to use a mild soap, bookmark our Approved Cleaners List for a handy guide when restocking your cleaning supplies.
Entertain away! Wine spills never absorb with Cambria.
2. Never polish. Never seal.
It’s easier than you think to keep your kitchen pristine. Cambria countertops never need routine polishing or sealing, which means countertop maintenance can be crossed off your to-do list for good. Other natural stone countertops require regular long-term maintenance – learn more about countertop pros and cons.
3. Note these helpful reminders.
Entertaining can be stressful, especially when there is cooking involved. Your easy-to-clean Cambria should be the least of your worries. As with all natural stone surfaces, you should not put direct heat on Cambria, so be sure to keep a trivet or closed-weave hot pad handy to protect your countertops. Stock up on a few accessories that complement your space, such as a geometric metal trivet for a modern space or a natural wood trivet for some farmhouse flavor.
You’ll also want to avoid cutting directly on your Cambria so you don’t have to replace your knife set. Due to Cambria’s durability, when a knife passes over Cambria, small metal shavings are left behind. These can sometimes be stubborn to remove and indicate your knife has been dulled or damaged.
