Caring for Solid Surface

Solid Surface Care

CLEANING

  • It is non-porous so nothing should soak in.  

  • Soap and water work fine, and mild cleaning products.

  • To clean solid surface countertops, use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe down.

  • For more dirty or stained areas, try a mild dish soap and water. Towel dry the surface.

  • Shiny surface countertops can use a liquid mildly abrasive cleaner, while nonshiny (matte) finishes can use baking soda or another mild abrasive cleaner to remove tougher stains.

  • Really difficult stains or spots may benefit from a solid-surface cleaning spray available at most home stores or see below.

  • Removing Stains:
    Soapy water and a sponge will remove most stains. For more stubborn stains use a blue scotch-brite pad and Soft-Scrub. Apply the Soft-Scrub to the countertop and scrub in a circular motion using the blue scotch-brite pad.  Both of these products are available at most stores. Always scrub in a circular motion.  Finish by buffing in a circular pattern using an Abralon (soft, spongy, red and gray)sanding pad. Polish using Countertop Magic or a similar countertop polish.

 

Essentials

  • Do not cut directly on your solid surface countertop. Cutting directly on it will damage the surface. Always use a cutting board to protect your countertop.

  • Run cold water when pouring boiling water into sinks.

  • Always use a trivet under heat producing appliances. You should have been provideda trivet with your countertop. If you did not receive one, please contact us. Hot panscan also damage your solid surface. Use a trivet with legs or a hot pad, under all hotpans.

 

WHAT NOT TO DO

  • Avoid exposing solid surface to strong chemicals, such as paint removers, ovencleaners, etc. If contact occurs, quickly flush the surface with water.

  • Remove nail polish with a non-acetone-based nail polish remover and flush withwater.

  • Run cold water when pouring boiling water into sinks.

 

REPAIR

  • Solid surface is repairable. 

  • Most scratches can be sanded out and then finished with a red scotchbrite.

  • For more glossy finishes, higher grit sandpaper and scotchbrite may be needed to match the sheen and gloss level of the rest of the top.

  • Chip, holes, and cutouts can be fixed, by glueing back in pieces for fill and sanding together the pieces for an inconspicuous fix and seam.

  • Large sections can be cut out and replaced
