Curava Care and Maintenance

The composition of Curava ensures that your countertop will be low maintenance as well as resistant to scratches and stains. Curava also has excellent heat resistance, but is NOT heat or fracture proof. Using some common sense, your Curava surface will remain beautiful and durable for many years to come, with virtually no maintenance. 

Day to day cleaning of Curava requires only a damp cloth, sponge or paper towel. We recommend warm water and a non-abrasive cleanser. Mild soap and water is the best option. For best results clean any food or liquid spills promptly. For dried spills a nonabrasive scrub pad with a mild cleanser such as Formula 409™ should remove the foreign material. While Curava is normally able to resist most household chemicals, avoid products containing bleach or ammonia. 

Polishing and Sealing 
One of the tremendous benefits of Curava Recycled Glass Surfaces is that it never requires sealing or topical waxes in order to remain as durable and beautiful as the day it was installed. Because Curava is non porous, with normal cleaning procedures as stated above, the surface will remain smooth with its original glossy finish. We strongly recommend against using sealants, penetrants or topical treatment under any circumstance. 
Curava can be damaged by strong chemicals and solvents; it is extremely durable but it is NOT indestructible. Avoid products that contain bleach, ammonia, trichlorethane or methylene chloride. These chemicals are typical in batteries, paint removers, furniture strippers and tarnish remover. If any agent of this nature comes in contact with your Curava countertop, immediately flush with water and then clean thoroughly with a diluted vinegar and water solution. If this occurs and a stain appears, get in touch with the installer of your countertop.
