Care & Maintenance for Solid Surface Countertops

Routine Care - There are three types of countertop finishes: matte/satin, semi-gloss and high-gloss. Most countertops are finished with a matte/satin finish. All sinks have a matte/satin finish. Soapy water, ammonia based cleaners will remove most dirt and residue from all types of finishes. Stubborn residue will require a little stronger cleaner.

Most dirt & residue Clean with soapy water or ammonia based cleaner, rinse and wipe dry.
Water marks Wipe with damp cloth and wipe dry.
Difficult residue Different techniques can be used to remove difficult residue. The finish of your countertop will determine the method used to clean the surface. Consult your local supplier for more information.
Disinfecting Occasionally wipe surface with diluted household bleach (1 part water/1 part bleach). Rinse thoroughly with water and wipe dry.

Preventing Heat and Other Damage - Although solid surface is a heat resistant product, it is important to use common sense to minimize direct heat exposure to protect your surface and investment. Use heat trivets or hot pads when placing hot objects on any surface and allow cookware to cool before placing them into a solid surface sink.

In most cases solid surface can be repaired if accidentally damaged. However, be sure to follow the guidelines here to prevent any permanent damage to your countertops.

  • Avoid exposing surface to strong chemicals, such as paint removers, oven cleaners, etc. If contact occurs, quickly flush the surface with water.
  • Do not cut directly on your solid surface countertops.
  • Boiling water alone will not damage your solid surface sink, however it’s a good practice to run your faucet while pouring boiling water into your sink.

Removing minor cuts, scratches and stains - Because solid surface material is a homogeneous material the surface can be renewed to its original appearance. Minor cuts, scratches, burns and general stains can be removed on-site by using a light abrasive cleaner and a Scotch-Brite® pad.

Follow these steps:

  • Determine the extent of the damage and whether on-site repair methods will solve the problem.
    (You may want to consult your solid surface supplier for instructions)
  • Use a light abrasive cleaner with a Scotch-Brite® pad and rub over the area in a straight line, periodically changing direction 90°.
  • If the above step is unsuccessful try hand sanding with a 400 grit wet-dry sand paper.
  • If this is unsuccessful consult your solid surface supplier for other repair options.

Renewing your Solid Surface Countertop - For minor restoration of your solid surface countertop use a light abrasive cleaner and a Scotch-Brite® pad. For more extensive restoration of your countertop consult your solid surface supplier for options.
