Although natural granite and quartzite are formed by two of the hardest minerals on Earth, they may be scratched. Granite and quartzites resist everyday normal use, but we recommend you always use a chopping board to protect its surface.
Sensa by Cosentino® natural stones are virtually maintenance-free; they are easy to clean and the treatment has a 15-year warranty.
To clean your countertop, wipe with soap and warm water or a mild household cleanser.
Wipe up spills as soon as possible. Always avoid using bleach and abrasive cleaners. Do not use polishes or waxes.
Unlike with most natural stones, you need not to reapply any treatment to protect your Sensa by Cosentino® countertop.
Like any other natural stone, granite and quartzite are sensitive to thermal shock, i.e. sudden surface temperature changes. We recommend you use tablemats to protect the countertop from direct heat.
Sensa by Cosentino® natural stones have an exclusive treatment that is used to provide high stain resistance. The protection ensures that your Sensa by Cosentino® countertop will stay beautiful for years with minimal maintenance. Clean the countertop regularly with a nonabrasive bleach-free cleaner to ensure your Sensa by Cosentino® countertop remains as good as new.
Stonemasons working with Sensa by Cosentino® must take into account certain considerations and precautions when deciding the location of the joints, such as (among others) the customer’s wishes, the layout of the kitchen, the environmental conditions, safety measures, the resistance of the materials and structure of the cupboards.
