Cleaning and Maintaining Concrete Countertops
Concrete countertops are really no different than any other type of countertop surface when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. A mild soap and warm water is recommended for daily cleaning. It is best to avoid using abrasive soaps, pads, or cleansers directly on the countertop, which could scratch or mar the countertop sealer. Find concrete product information here.
Some contractors recommend routine maintenance to include reapplying a wax to the surface of the countertop every month. Discuss this with your contractor as methods will vary. Regardless of how often you perform the recommended maintenance, the durability of your countertop will not be compromised.
Part of the appeal of concrete countertops is their natural ability to become worn with time and use. This can be prevented with a strict maintenance schedule, or you can allow your countertop to develop patina and character with use.
