- Cleaning Techniques
There are three types of Solid Surfaces finishes: matte/satin, semigloss and high-gloss. Contact your Solid Surfaces sales expert if you are unsure of your finish. Most countertops and all sinks and lavatories are finished with a matte/satin finish. Soapy water, ammonia-based cleaners or commercially available solid surface cleaners will remove most dirt and residue from all types of finishes. Stubborn residue will require a little stronger cleaner. Follow the recommendations below to properly clean your Solid Surfaces application.
While Solid Surfaces withstand heat better than most surface materials, do not place hot cookware directly on a Solid Surface. To avoid damage caused by excessive heat:
Always use a trivet or hot pad under hot cookware.
Always use a trivet with minimum ¼" legs under small electrical appliances such as fryers and cookers.
Solid Surfaces are unaffected by common household and commercial cleaners such as:
Ammonia. Strong detergents. Oxalic acid solutions. Dilute hydrochloric acid solutions. Dilute trisodium phosphate solutions. Acid drain cleaners may cause surface damage and should not be used on Solid Surfaces.
Washing with soap and water is usually sufficient to remove surface dirt or stains.
Ammonia based liquid cleaner (not window cleaner) may also be used. Always rinse surface thoroughly and wipe dry.
Drying is an important step, preventing a build-up of soap film or cleaning residue, which can create the appearance of light scratches over time.
For darker colours, a polish may be used to enhance the shine. For areas where there may be food contact, always use a polish formulated for food contact areas, such as Countertop Magic®. Where food contact is not a possibility, a simple furniture polish may be used. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for using the polish and for safety concerns.
Solid Surfaces can be repaired with no permanent damage. Tough to remove stains, fine scratches, and small cuts can be removed using standard repair techniques.
