the table top is the closest contact between the cabinet structure and the food we eat. The durability and antibacterial properties of countertops have a direct impact on our daily kitchen life. More and more consumers begin to pay attention to the environmental protection and health problems of countertops. So, what kind of countertop is more environmentally friendly? We might as well make a careful comparison

natural marble has natural texture but crack defects

it is easy to crack. Natural marble has all kinds of beautiful textures, but its natural fine cracks will crack after long use

it is difficult to wipe the crack. In daily cleaning, it is inevitable that some residues will be permanently filled into the crack with the wiping of the rag, becoming a hotbed for bacterial breeding

radiation that cannot be ignored. Natural stones are more or less radioactive, which may be harmful to human health

environmental protection index ★

high density weakens the hidden worry of hidden dirt. As a traditional cabinet countertop material, granite has high density, high hardness, and very wear-resistant surface, which reduces the possibility of hiding dirt to a certain extent

the better antibacterial performance test shows that among all the materials that can be used for kitchen countertops, granite has a better ability to resist bacterial regeneration

limitations of natural materials the length of natural stones is usually not long, so if you want to make a full-length integral table, there must be joints, which are also easy to hide dirt

if you like natural materials very much, granite with strong antibacterial ability is an ideal choice, but you should pay special attention to the joint level of construction workers

environmental protection index ★★★

the good antibacterial performance test shows that among all the materials that can be used for kitchen countertops at present, stainless steel ranks first in terms of its ability to resist bacterial regeneration

the appearance of the stainless steel table top that is easy to be injured is very avant-garde, and it is shiny and does not show dirt. However, once the table surface is scratched by sharp tools, it will leave irretrievable traces. These fine scratches are also easy to hide dirty things. You must pay special attention to wiping its surface at ordinary times

environmental protection index ★★★

most of them are low-cost density boards. Most of the materials used to manufacture fire-proof boards in China are low-cost density boards, which cannot provide effective guarantees in terms of use performance and environmental protection

seamless splicing is very difficult. As with natural stone, the length of fireproof board is limited, and the joint of cross-section is very difficult. No matter whether Silicone Adhesion or metal strip caulking is used, the overall perfect seamless splicing cannot be achieved. These gaps are naturally the "hotbed" of bacterial dirt

environmental protection index ★★

it is easy to break when it is too cold and overheated. The ceramic tile used for the counter top of the cabinet has the same physical characteristics as the wall tile. Although it is very durable, it is easy to break under the impact of heavy objects, and the overheated or supercooled objects will also be damaged if they are placed on it for a long time

there must be cracks in the spliced tiles. Even the seamless tiles will leave a much larger gap between the tiles than when spliced with other materials, which is very inconvenient for cleaning. The hidden health hazards are self-evident. In addition, the caulking agent is easy to blacken, and the inferior quality may also appear mildew

environmental protection index ★★

artificial stone has stone texture but no radiation. It has rich lines and colors, which can be comparable with stone, but it is not a little radioactive and easier to clean. It is an ideal substitute for natural marble

the real seamless splicing uses the unique bonding and grinding technology, and the artificial stone table top can realize seamless splicing, and there is no place for dirt and bacteria

details of environmental protection table top corners and seams

cabinet table top should be connected with the cabinet body and the wall. In this subtle connection, there are also health and environmental protection problems

1. Environmentally friendly caulking agent

caulking agent is generally used to bond the joint between the table top and the wall, or metal strips are used as a transition. It is recommended that you choose non-toxic and harmless water-soluble caulking agent

2. Environmental friendly decorative strips should be used at the corners

at the corners where the corner table is spliced, silica gel bonding, plastic and special metal strips are usually used to increase the appearance. Environmental friendly decorative strips and caulking agents made of various colors of stainless steel and non-toxic polymer synthetic materials can make you enjoy a safe and hygienic kitchen life

3. Putty for purifying air

even with good ventilation conditions, it is impossible to avoid the pollution of lampblack on the table. If advanced inorganic putty with air purification effect is used, it can effectively remove indoor pollution and odor, convert these substances into carbon dioxide and steam, and add cleaner and healthy air to the kitchen

how to maintain the cabinet table

1 Keep the table as dry as possible. The refractory board and anti Beite table top should avoid long-term immersion, so as to prevent the table top from being glued and deformed. It is necessary to prevent bleach and scale in water from lightening the color of artificial stone countertops and affecting their beauty

2. Strictly prevent strong chemicals from contacting the table, such as paint remover, metal cleaner, stove cleaner, methylene chloride, acetone (nail polish remover), strong acid cleaner, etc. In case of accidental contact with the above items, immediately wash the surface with a large amount of soapy water. If you get nail polish, please wipe it with acetone free detergent (such as alcohol) and then rinse it with water

3. Do not let heavy or sharp objects directly impact the surface; Oversized or overweight vessels cannot be placed on the table for a long time; Don't scald with boiling water immediately after washing with cold water

4. Clean with soap water or detergent containing ammonia (such as detergent). For scale, remove it with a wet rag and then wipe it with a dry cloth

5. For knife marks, burns and cuts, if the surface finish of the table is required to be Matt, use 400~600 mesh sandpaper to polish until the knife marks disappear, and then use detergent and cleaning cloth to restore the original state. If the surface finish of the table is mirror, first polish it with 800~1200 mesh sandpaper, then polish it with polishing wax and wool polishing ring, and then clean the table with clean cotton cloth. For minor scars, gently wipe the surface with a dry rag dipped in edible oil

6. There are many scratches on the table surface for different reasons, or the appearance is affected by the long service time (1-2 years), so professional technicians can be invited to deal with it professionally
