maia has been developed to be used in the domestic environment - particularly the kitchen. Although no 'special' maintenance is needed we recommend the following is adhered to, as prevention is always better than cure.
maia does not require any specialist cleaning regimes – most dirt and light residue will easily wipe away with a damp cloth and soapy water. The worksurface should then be rinsed with clean water and wiped dry. Persistent marks can be removed by using a mild-abrasive cleaner, but harsh scouring powders should be avoided. If in doubt, consult our care and maintenance guide.
maia's surfaces will withstand heat better than many alternative surface materials. However, all hot pots, pans and other heat generating devices should always be placed upon a trivet or worktop protector rods, to prevent extreme heat having prolonged and direct contact with the surface. Boiling water and cooking splashes do not harm the surface.
maia, unlike marble and granite, will resist most household chemicals including alcohol and cosmetics however, some chemicals and strong dyes can cause damage and discolouration. If spillage occurs wipe off immediately and rinse area thoroughly.
Kitchen utensils and crockery (particularly the unglazed bases) can sometimes cause scratches that will be particularly evident on darker colours. The surface can be damaged by scratching or cutting with knives, so the use of a cutting board is essential. Don’t worry though, any minor scratches can easily be removed using a red abrasive pad and other items from the care kit, please refer to the care and maintenance guide.
maia Care Kit
To help maintain your maia worksurface, a Care Kit is available from your retailer or online here. This kit contains all that you need to make minor repairs to the surface and a special polish that helps to maintain, protect and build up a lustre particularly on darker colours.
Made from the finest of materials, maia's high technology surface consists of acrylic resin, two thirds aluminium hydroxide and colour pigments. The properties of these components combine to form a versatile practical material, with the appearance of real stone but without the associated cost or inherent drawbacks. In fact, maia's surface presents many benefits over stone such as its greater heat resistance, virtually inconspicuous joints, aesthetically appealing and smooth feel.
