LG Viatera®, composed of 93% natural quartz, helps to make your countertop a low-maintenance surface that is resistant to scratches and stains. LG Viatera® is also heat-resistant, making it capable of enduring heat from a hot pan for short durations. However, to avoid possible damage, a trivet or hot pad is recommended. With proper care and maintenance, LG Viatera® will remain beautiful and durable for many years.
Routine cleaning of LG Viatera® requires only a damp cloth and mild household detergent. A list of acceptable cleaning products is located at the end of this document. For best results, clean spills as soon as possible. LG Viatera® is resistant to most stains including wine, lemon juice, tea, and fruits and vegetables without permanently staining or damaging the counters.
Cleaning Stains and Dried Spills
For tougher stains, mild non-abrasive cleansers are a good solution to keeping the surface looking new. Recommended cleaners include Formula 409 Glass & Surface Cleaner, Bar Keeper’s Friend, Lysol, and Greased Lightning. For dried spills, a non-abrasive scrub pad can be used. Rinse thoroughly and wipe with a damp cloth to remove all residue. While LG Viatera® can able to withstand most household chemicals, avoid using harsh chemicals or products that contain bleach. For tough spots from items such as gum, grease, paint, food, etc., scrape off the residue with a razor blade or putty knife prior to cleaning. The scraping may leave a gray metal mark on the countertop and can be cleaned off by using a recommended cleaner and a soft non-abrasive scrub pad. Buff with a damp cloth. For stubborn spots or stains, soak a pad of paper towels in water and any of the recommended cleansers and apply the towel to the stain and let soak for a few minutes. Deeply clean with a non-abrasive scrub pad and cleanser, rinse thoroughly, and buff with a damp cloth.
Waxes and Sealing
One of the many benefits of LG Viatera® is that it requires no sealants or waxes to be applied during its lifetime. Because it is non-porous, a sealer will not absorb into the material and would be ineffective. With normal cleaning procedures, your countertop will always retain its luster.
Honed finishes require more frequent cleaning to maintain their appearance. Metal marks, finger prints, and other signs of daily living will be more apparent. However, visible marks such as these can be removed by using a non-abrasive pad and any of the recommended cleaning products.
LG Viatera® is NOT Indestructible!!
