minerva solid surfaces come with our 10 year guarantee.* and are supported by the FIRA Gold Award for product excellence – this is testimony to the fact that we use only the most superior materials and our products are constantly tested to ensure they are manufactured to the highest standards minerva has been developed for the domestic environment, especially the kitchen.
Although no ‘special’ maintenance is needed, we recommend the following is adhered to, as prevention is always better than cure.
minerva does not require any specialist cleaning regimes, most dirt and light residue will easily wipe off with a damp cloth and soapy water. The worksurface should then be rinsed with clean water and wiped dry. Persistent marks can be removed by using a mild abrasive cleaner, but harsh scouring powders should be avoided. If in doubt, consult our ‘Care and Maintenance’ guide.
minerva’s surface will withstand heat better than many alternative surface materials. However, all hot pots, pans and other heat generating devices should always be placed on a trivet or worktop protector rods to prevent extreme heat having prolonged and direct contact with the surface. Boiling water and cooking splashes do not harm the surface.
minerva, unlike marble and granite, is not porous and will resist most household chemicals including alcohol and cosmetics, however, some chemicals and strong dyes can cause damage and discolouration. If spillage occurs, wipe off immediately and rinse area thoroughly.
Kitchen utensils and crockery (particularly the unglazed bases) can sometimes cause scratches that will be more evident on darker colours. The surface can be damaged by scratching or cutting with knives, so the use of a cutting board is essential. Any minor scratches can easily be removed using a red abrasive pad and other items from the Care Kit. Please refer to the care and maintenance guide.
