Dekton is an innovative man-made surface that looks stunning and is one of the most durable countertop materials. If you’re considering investing in a beautiful Dekton countertop for your kitchen or bathroom, you might be wondering how to clean this high-performance, ultra-compact surface. 

The worktop experts at Mo’s StoneX have put together this ultimate guide on how to clean dekton countertops with everything you need to know. We’ll cover:

  • Regular Dekton maintenance and care
  • How to remove stains from Dekton work surfaces 
  • Precautions to take with your Dekton worktop

 

Regular Dekton care and maintenance

The good news is that Dekton worktops are very simple to clean and maintain – they don’t require sealants like natural stone surfaces and are highly resistant to stains, heat and scratches!

To clean your Dekton worktop, you only need a soft microfibre cloth, soap, and water to clean your surface. Alternatively, gently rub the cloth in a circular motion, leave for a few minutes and then wipe clean. Dry your surface with a kitchen towel for a streak-free finish. 

You can also use any pH-balanced cleaning products on your Dekton worktop. However, you should avoid leaving strong chemicals and solvents on the surface for long periods.

 

How to remove stains from Dekton 

Although neutral soap and warm water are enough for daily cleaning, stubborn stains can require a more intensive treatment to remove. Here’s a breakdown of how you can tackle the most common stains and spillages that might affect your Dekton kitchen worktop.

 

Grease and oil stains

For grease and oil stains, you’ll want to use an alkaline detergent, such as a multi-purpose cleaner.

 

Wine, coffee and food stains

For wine, coffee and food stains, you should use low-pH cleaning products, descaling products or oxidants. 

 

Rust and limescale

If you notice limescale stains or rust on your Dekton surface, you can use an acid-based cleaning product, vinegar mixed with water or a diluted anti-limescale product. Ensure you rinse with clean water and dry with a kitchen roll. 

 

Stains that harden as they dry

For stains, such as candle wax, gum, nail polish and paint, you’ll want to start by gently scraping the surface with a blade or putty remover. You can then clean using warm, soapy water as usual. Alternatively, you can use a universal solvent such as acetone or rubbing alcohol. 

 

Smear marks 

To remove smear marks from your Dekton worktop, apply a glass cooktop cleaner. Make sure you wipe clean with fresh water and a clean cloth. You can also use a squeegee or a kitchen towel to ensure the surface is completely dry. 

 

Precautions to take with your Dekton worktop

Although Dekton is famous for its durability and toughness, we still recommend taking some precautions with your Dekton countertop to ensure it looks stunning in your home for years to come. 

Try to avoid:

  • Placing heat sources or hot objects directly on your Dekton surfaces, such as hot pots and pans. Although Dekton is resistant to high temperatures, it’s still best to use a trivet. 
  • Chopping directly on your Dekton worktop as this can damage your knives and your worktop over the long term. A chopping board is a much better option.
  • Using metal scrubbing pads or leaving strong chemicals on your surface for extended periods. 
  • Knocking or hitting the edges, corners or bevels of your Dekton countertop.
