In the case of deeper stains, such as felt-tip pens and ink, we suggest that you rub the surface with turpentine or trichloroethylene as soon as possible. Afterwards, rinse generously with water and dry properly.

For the maintenance and cleaning of ceramic, we also suggest: 

  • To quickly clean any liquids that may be on the surface before they dry
  • Do not use abrasive products
  • Do not move dishes, cookware or small appliances on the surface
  • Use a cutting board to cut food
Ceramic grand ideas

Ceramic in the kitchen instantly gives a room a grandiose effect. Solid and durable, it is a good alternative to marble and natural stones.

Ceramic is made of stoneware, which contains natural materials including clay and minerals, which are then reduced to a fine powder. This powder undergoes various processes and treatments and is then exposed to very high temperatures in order to make the material extremely resistant.

In addition to its undeniable aesthetic aspect, ceramic is an eco-responsible choice. Indeed, ceramic is made only of natural materials and is 100% recyclable.
Ceramic has several qualities and characteristics, including:

  • Unparalleled impermeability because it is non-porous
  • Increased resistance to stains
  • Remarkable resistance to scratches and snags
  • Resistance to heat, humidity and mould
  • Hygienic (allows contact with food)
  • Easy to maintain

    Ceramic facades are composed of a stoneware plate which is installed on a special support. At PURE, for example, we use 4mm thick panels mounted on an extruded aluminum frame. The latter is a light and strong material at the same time, it is very resistant, even to corrosion, and therefore ensures a long service life. It is also eco-friendly and 100% recyclable. The aluminum elements are only visible when the fronts are open.

    One of the big advantages of ceramic is that it can be available in a single large slab that can reach dimensions of up to 1580 mm by 3200 mm. For a worktop with larger dimensions, it is possible to arrange several pieces to create the desired effect. Generally, the thickness of the pieces is 12 mm but thicker formats are also available. Ceramic is very versatile and can also be used for backsplashes and credenzas.

    One thing is certain with ceramic: simplicity. Indeed, it is very easy to clean a ceramic surface. We suggest you use a soft cloth or a sponge with a little warm water (you can also use a mild detergent). Then, rinse and dry with an absorbent cloth.
    In the case of a major stain, you can use:

  • Anti-scaling products (leave on the stain for 10 minutes maximum, then rinse and dry afterwards)
  • Good old bleach (use on a cloth and rub the stain quickly. The stain should disappear after a few minutes. Rinse and dry afterwards)
  • Acetone or ammonia (test before starting the process on a less exposed area and a little bit away from the stain to test) 
  • Reinvent
