We recommend using a non-abrasive cleaner such as Method All-Purpose Natural Surface cleaner. Spray the cleaner across the surface and wipe down with a sponge or towel. We do not recommend the use of most natural cleansers (which are often citrus based), as the cleaning agent is highly acidic and can damage natural materials.
For added protection and polishing, we recommend using Trewax Clear Paste Wax — which can be purchased online and at many hardware stores. For high use furnishings, we recommend that you do this on a monthly basis.
When waxing the surfaces use the included sponge or a soft, clean cotton cloth. Dampen the applicator with clean water and wring out completely. With the sponge or cloth, apply a thin layer of wax in circular motions and in small manageable sections, preferably no larger than 3 ft by 3 ft. Once applied, remove the excess wax immediately with a new/different dry cloth in the same circular motion. This is called buffing and it works the wax into the natural material.
Thick layers of wax should not be applied or left on the surface for any extended period of time. This does not add more protection or speed up the waxing process.
Concrete surfaces are resilient, however unintentional damage can occur and is easily avoidable. In order to avoid the formation of visible scratches, do not place or drag sharp or coarse objects on the surface. Do not place extremely hot pans, dishes, or cups directly onto your countertop as this can cause sealer discoloration. Using felt pads is recommended for the bottom of surfaces of all objects. Be mindful of accidentally hitting the edges as this can cause small chips to occur. Chips are repairable. Please contact us for further information.
