Care Guide: Concrete Surfaces

Bathroom Care Guide

Concrete is a characteristically hardwearing, resistant material hence it being widely used for so many applications. Concrete however, like any stone, can stain and chip if not treated with care. A unique system of cement, admixtures, aggregates and pigments along with specialist sealing process ensures a quality finish. A sealing system provides the most effective seal whilst maintaining the natural look and feel of the concrete.

To help maintain concrete surfaces:

  •  Avoid leaving any liquids on the surface, especially liquids containing acids or alkali as these may cause erosion to the surface of the concrete. If liquids containing these properties do come into contact with the surface we recommend these are wiped away as soon as possible.
  • Avoid leaving any items on the surface that may allow a vacuum to form. Leaving items on the surface for a period of time can cause a difference in surface texture.
  • Basins or surfaces should NOT be rubbed with abrasive materials such as metal pads or wire wool as this may result in scratching and permanent damage to the concrete. When cleaning your basin, we advise using a non abrasive cloth and a PH neutral cleaner. Surfaces must not be cleaned with any products containing bleach.
  • Avoid impact from heavy objects directly onto the concrete surface. Although concrete is a very durable material the edges are most vulnerable and impact can cause chipping, cracking and in some situations, breakages.
  • As an additional protective barrier and to create more of a polished finish Kast basins can be waxed as and when required.
