Following a few simple steps for care and maintenance will ensure your solid surface countertops will serve you for many years… beautifully.
Do not place hot pots or pans on your countertops, use hot pads or trivets in between your cookware and solid surface countertops to avoid yellowing and heat damage.
Always use a separate cutting board, never use your solid surface countertop as a cutting board.
Protect your solid surface countertops by avoiding contact with strong chemicals like paint removers and oven cleaners. If contact does occur, rinse repeatedly with clean water.
Daily cleaning only requires a damp cloth and a mild cleanser, never use industrial strength cleaners such as drain cleaner, oven cleaner, or toilet cleaner which are designed for other purposes. No sealer or waxing is ever required.
Solid surface countertops can be disinfected by wiping them with one part water and one part bleach. Rinse afterward completely with clean water.
Food dye, tea, fruit drinks and other liquid stains can be removed with full strength bleach, followed up by a general cleanser flushed with water. Do not let the bleach remain on the surface for more than five minutes.
Cigarette burns, nicotine stains, scorch marks, knife cuts, gouges, chips, etc, be sure to contact Castle Rock Countertops for the correct way to deal with your issue.
Hard water deposits on the solid surface countertop can be easily removed with ordinary vinegar.
Red wine spills and stains can be easily removed with denatured alcohol and a cotton rag, using circular wiping motion when cleaning up the spill.
Nail polish can be removed from solid surface material with non-acetone nail polish remover.
