Engineered Stone Cleaning Melbourne

Engineered Stone Cleaning with Melbourne’s Most Qualified Experts

Engineered stone has become a hot topic and has gained immensely popular in recent times. It’s durability, simplicity and easy maintenance makes it a great choice for modern kitchens and bathrooms. However, like any other stone surface, engineered stone requires the proper care and maintenance in order to keep the surface in pristine condition and retain its elegance. Engineered stone cleaning is a vital aspect of maintenance. At Stone Doctor Services, we take engineered stone work very seriously and ensure the proper techniques, safety measures and procedures are in place.


Understanding Engineered Stone

Engineered stone, commonly known as composite stone or quartz, is manufactured by combining crushed quartz with resin, polymers and other materials. The process results in a surface which compares to natural stone, however, it offers durability and resistance more superior than any other stone. Another aspect of engineered stone is that engineered stone is non-porous and generally does not need sealing, however the stone can still be sealed for extra protection using premium penetrating sealers which we also offer. Despite its sturdiness and resilience, proper engineered stone cleaning is needed in order to preserve its beauty and longevity.

The Basics of Engineered Stone Cleaning


Regular Maintenance

Engineered stone surfaces should be maintained regularly, typically with a specialty cleaner best suited for quartz surfaces. A prime example of this is our Caesarstone Spray Cleaner, a top-quality engineered stone cleaning product.

Cleaning Pads

Try to avoid harsh scouring pads and stick to microfibre cloths and soft sponges when cleaning your engineered stone surfaces.


Stain Removal

For stubborn stains, marks and general dullness, we can recommend trying an abrasive cleaner specialised for quartz surfaces, such as Caesarstone Cream Cleanser. The next step if the cream cleanser fails would be to seek professional restoration.


Avoid Heat Damage

Try to avoid placing anything hot on engineered stone surfaces. Although somewhat resistant, they are not completely heatproof and can be burnt. Burn marks are generally irreversible, depending on the severity.


Acidic Cleaners

Avoid acidic cleaners and use specialty cleaners as mentioned above.


Although engineered stone is non-porous and does not require sealing, at Stone Doctor Services, we do have specialty sealers which can seal and help protect your engineered stone surfaces.

Work Safe License and Engineered Stone

Recently, engineered stone has become a controversial topic due to the silica dust it produces when any sort of cutting, grinding, drilling, sanding and polishing is done to engineered stone surfaces without the use of water.


Silica Dust

The silica dust emitted can be fatal and detrimental to the lungs, causing silicosis and irreversible long-term damage. Hence, the engineered stone license was introduced from November 15, 2022.

Work Safe License

Any individual or business partaking in engineered stone restoration must have their Engineered Stone License otherwise they are not permitted to work with engineered stone.
