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.

Routine Cleaning
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.

Minor scratching
Kitchen utensils and crockery (particularly 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 the grey abrasive pad and other items from the minerva® care kit. Please refer to the care and maintenance guide.

Heating
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.

Staining
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.

Standard Woodworking Tools
minerva® can easily be cut on site ready for jointing using standard woodworking tools and equipment.
