Taking Care of Your EOS Countertop
EOS is made to withstand the rigors of everyday countertop use. Normal cleaning requires a damp cloth and a mild cleanser. If you have chosen a matte finish you may use an abrasive cleaner, which should be applied using a circular motion. A semi-gloss finish should be cleaned with soap and water, although you may wish to use a countertop polish to keep the counters looking fresh. Avoid the use of strong acidic cleaners, such as those designed for drains, toilets or ovens, as they can damage your countertop surface.
Preventing Heat Damage
EOS is an excellent material for heat resistance. However, as with all countertop materials, it is important to minimize direct heat exposure to protect your investment. Use heat trivets or hot pads when transferring hot pans directly from the burner or oven. It is also a good idea to run cold water in the sink when pouring in hot liquids.
Removing Minor Cuts and Scratches
As with all countertop materials, you should not cut directly on your EOS countertop. Minor scratches can be removed by using an abrasive cleaner or Scotch Brite pad, always rubbing in a circular motion. Deeper scratches on countertops with a matte finish may be removed using fine sandpaper (180 grit), followed with a Scotch Brite pad. For removing deep scratches in semi-gloss or gloss finishes we recommend contacting your fabricator for assistance.
