Clean your top like you would any surface, NOT allowing water TO STAND on the surface for any length of time. For best results, clean finished surfaces with soapy water or commonly available kitchen counter top cleaners. Do not use abrasives or powder cleansers. DO NOT use bleach to clean your top. Try to avoid water puddles for long periods of time and wipe up spills and excess soap immediately.
Your counter top is ready to use when you get it home and does not require any sanding or additional finish. Most of our tops have been coated with a clear, oil-based finish. To properly maintain your top use mineral oil or wood paste wax. If any cuts are made in the top to size it, it is recommended to immediately apply finish to avoid warping.
Your top may take on moisture in the transportation from our shop to your home. As a result, slight and allowable, warping may occur and the block may expand as much as 3/16” in width (the block should not change in length). Once the top has become adjusted to the new environment, the moisture content will equalize and the top should straighten out. It is recommended to consult a professional for assistance with installation.
