Care Tips For Kitchen Countertops, Carlsbad

Countertops are a great addition to every kitchen. They do not only contribute to the overall aesthetics of the place, but they also offer added convenience. They function as an added space for food preparation. That said, it is important to take good care of your kitchen countertops, Carlsbad. After all, you would want a countertop that could last longer.

Taking care of your kitchen countertops, Carlsbad is key to keeping them in good shape.

Here are some care tips that can help prolong countertops’ lifespan:

Use the right cleaning solution. From time to time, countertops need cleaning and disinfecting. It is imperative that you only use cleaning solutions that are not ‘harsh’ chemicals. The use of such chemicals may ruin the integrity of the materials, including colors. Any cleaner with ammonia or bleach should be avoided.

Protect them from heat. This is another item to take into consideration. When you are cooking, do not put your pan or cooking pot directly on the surface as heat can affect the integrity of the materials. High temperature can damage countertops. For instance, a quartz countertop can only withstand up to around 300 degrees Fahrenheit. So, if you are taking something out from your oven or stove, do not put it directly to the countertop’s surface; instead, use a protector such as a wooden board to protect the countertop from extreme heat.

Protect it from cracks. If you are using meat cleaver (aka bone chopper), you might consider using a butcher block instead of a chopping board. The former is a lot thicker. It offers several layers of protection for your countertop. Also, do not put a super heavy object on it (do not attempt to stand on it – if you intend to do it for some bizarre reason).

Follow the manufacturer’s/installer’s care instructions. Last but not least, follow the care recommendations given to you by the installer or manufacturers. If there is someone who knows and understands the characteristics of countertop materials, it is them.
