Care and Maintenance
The Sokul Sink quartz surfaces blend modern sophistication and timeless luxury with unbeatable strength and durability. The Sokul Sink requires only simple and routine care to maintain its good looks. To clean the Sokul Sink, we recommend using warm water and a mild detergent or quality spray and wipe type cleaner in order to enjoy the beauty and performance for years to come.
Virtually maintenance free, the Sokul Sinks hard, non-porous surfaces are simple to clean and require no sealing to renew their luster. In most cases, soap and water or a mild detergent is enough to keep your Sokul Sink surface looking like new. If necessary, you can use a non-abrasive soft soap along with a non-scratch or delicate scrub pad. Afterwards, thoroughly rinse with clean water to remove residue.
Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills
If needed, apply a non-abrasive household cleaner (a non-abrasive cleaner will not dull the surface shine) and rinse to remove residue. For extra-stubborn stains, a no-scratch Scotch-Brite pad is recommended along with a non-abrasive cleaner.
The Sokul Sink can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes. We suggest that heating elements never be directly placed on the surface. We recommend a hot pad be placed on the surface under straightener’s or curling irons.
The Sokul Sink is a highly scratch resistant surface; however avoid abuse of the surface by refraining from suing sharp objects such as knives or screw drivers directly onto the surface.
Cleaning Agents to Avoid
It’s important to be aware that like any other surface, the Sokul Sink can be permanently damaged if exposed to strong chemicals and solvents that can damage its physical properties. Never clean your Sokul Sink surface with products that contain Trichloroethane or Methylene chloride, such as paint removers or paints strippers. Avoid using highly aggressive cleaning/polishing agents that have pH levels outside 5-11. Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off immediately with clean water to neutralize the effect.
Natural Stone Routine Care
Natural stone countertops should be cleaned with neutral cleaners specifically designed for stone. These cleaners contain no acids and are concentrated neutral pH cleaners that will not affect existing sealers or other types of coatings. Stone cleaners should never contain acid or bleach. Acids, even a light solution of vinegar and water, will etch and eventually damage many varieties of natural stone. A solution of the pH neutral cleaner and water mixed to manufacturer instructions should be applied to the stone surface with a sponge or spray bottle. Allow solution to sit per manufacturer recommended specified amount of time to ensure penetration of the stone. Agitate with a sponge, or soft bristle brush. Remove dirty solution with clean sponge and buff dry. Some textured stone may require a different cleaning method or additional procedures not specified here.
