Our panels are extremely robust and scratch resistant. As the surface is non-porous and hygienic, liquids containing water and grease have no chance of penetrating the material. Compared to a ceramic tile splashback, a full-surface ceramic tile splashback has no joints and is therefore easy to clean.
To ensure that your kitchen splashback gives looks its best for a long time to come, you should observe the following when using and cleaning it:
- Ceramic splashbacks are water resistant and impervious to moisture. We recommend removing strongly staining or greasy liquids that land on the surface during cooking and frying as soon as possible, especially in the case of white designs.
- A microfibre cloth and water are sufficient for cleaning. You can also use a household cleaner such as vinegar, soapy water or glass cleaner.
- Ceramic splashbacks are acid resistant, however you should refrain from using strongly abrasive or acidic cleaners to avoid any changes to the surface.
Important: Never clean a ceramic panel with strongly abrasive or scratching tools, such as a metal ceramic hob scraper or a stainless steel scourer! This could change the gloss level of the surface.
Daily cleaning of ceramic panels
Ceramics are manufactured at high temperatures and under high pressure. This gives Lechner ceramic tile splashbacks their extreme robustness. Greases, oils and liquids cannot penetrate this non-porous material, which ensures particularly easy cleaning.
To keep the surface clean, it is sufficient to wipe it with a damp cloth every day. You can then dry the splashback with a microfibre cloth. If water is not sufficient, commercially available household cleaners can be used if necessary. Strongly alkaline (PH value ≥ 9) and abrasive agents are not recommended.
Caution: Strongly acidic and alkaline cleaning agents are unsuitable for ceramic splashbacks!
Removing stubborn stains and deposits from ceramic wall panels
Stubborn deposits and stains can be removed with vinegar-based household cleaning products and a soft sponge. You can remove dried food residues with a wooden or plastic scraper. The use of a metal scraper or stainless steel spiral is not advisable, as these could alter the surface of your splashback.
