Let’s face it. No one really likes to do cleaning and maintenance. But they are an essential part of household life and they are important so that your equipment, appliances and even built-ins are in top condition and last a long time. Some things require lots of time and effort to maintain, while others don’t. Luckily for people with concrete bench tops, it’s the latter. However, it always helps to have some guidelines and so Kreative Elements has come up with this blog post to help you maintain your concrete bench tops.
It is vital to have your concrete bench top sealed to protect it from spills and chips. In most cases, your concrete bench tops will come with sealing, so there is no need to be too concerned about it.
There are a few things you should avoid when it comes to keeping your concrete bench top in top condition. Always use a trivet or coaster when putting excessively hot things on your concrete bench top. Be careful when using an extremely sharp knife. Other than that, concrete bench tops are sometimes at risk of staining from citrus and red wine, but sealing should deal with that.
Having your concrete bench top waxed every few months or perhaps even every month will make sure it looks as best as it possibly can and hence will last for a long time.
Just simply wiping your concrete bench top every day after you finish using it with a piece of cloth will keep your concrete bench top clean and in good shape. Use light cleaning agents like surface sprays with warm water for the best results. Water can leave really stubborn stains over time and that can be pretty difficult to get off later.
As you can see, concrete bench tops are pretty easy to maintain. As discussed in a previous post, they’re pretty cost efficient and sturdy as well. So why not get yourself one?
