The kitchen countertop is one of the most exploited surfaces in our home. On it, we place heavy shopping bags, which often contain bottles and jars. We put pots and pans on the countertop, often hot. We also prepare a large part of our food on the countertop.
Another room that we use very often—several times a day is the bathroom and countertop around the sink. We often perform cosmetic and beauty procedures on it, fix our hair and make-up, use appliances such as a hair dryer, curling iron, as well as various cosmetics such as hairspray, creams, nail polish remover and others.
What do we need to know to keep the kitchen and bathroom countertop lasting and beautiful for a long time?
The first condition is to choose a quality material for the countertop! And here the most right choice is undoubtedly the technical stone Çimstone, offered in Bulgaria by the company AR Commerce. Why is this the right solution? Çimstone is a technical stone made of quartz (93%) and resins (7%) using the Italian Breton technology! As one of the hardest materials in nature, quartz gives Çimstone countertops a reason to be extremely durable, hygienic, aesthetic and proof.
Does this mean that we can put on the countertop whatever we can think of and perform any kind of activity on it, without much thought? The answer is a resounding NO!
Çimstone technical stone countertops are durable but not indestructible. They are resistant to cracks and scratches, but they can still be damaged by very heavy objects and very strong chemicals.
Never place a hot pot directly on the countertop! Always use a cutting board! This way you will keep the look and shine on the surface of the countertop for many years to come! And with this type of smart use, maintaining the countertops is extremely easy. Cleaning even with a damp cloth restores the shine of the countertop, in the look from the first day of its installation. However, do not use abrasive products.
In terms of heat resistance, Çimstone countertops are much more tolerant of hot dishes. However, a sharp temperature difference can damage the surface. Therefore, it is not proper to place the dishes directly from the stove on the countertop. It is recommended to always put a pad.
Just as every detail in our home requires care and maintenance, so we must be careful when exploiting the countertops in our kitchen and bathroom. However, when choosing a Çimstone technical stone from AR Commerce, we are extremely facilitated to follow the few and easy to implement rules. As a result of these facts, we can enjoy countertops with an excellent aesthetic appearance many times longer!
