How to Clean and Maintain Solid Surface Worktops
Regular cleaning is essential for maintaining the look of your worktop and ensuring they stay hygienic and food-safe. To protect your countertops from damage, we recommend using a chopping board to avoid scratches from appearing and a heat pad when placing hot pans or heat-generating appliances on your worktops.
How to Clean Solid Surface Worktops
Everyday spills and dirt can be easily cleaned away with a damp sponge and wiped dry with a soft cloth to prevent spotting. For basic household stains, simply repeat these steps using a mild detergent and a non-abrasive microfibre cloth. Stubborn stains require slightly more effort to remove. Using an abrasive cleaner and a wet sponge, lightly scrub the affected area in small circular motions and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. For gloss surfaces, we advise using a non-abrasive cleaner.
How to Remove Minor Scratches
Dark décors, especially those with a gloss finish may show signs of use such as scratches more readily than lighter décors. To remove minor scratches, lightly scrub the affected area with a wet sponge and an abrasive cleaner. Rinse with clean water and wipe dry with a soft, dry cloth.
After cleaning your surface, you can enhance the visual colour clarity and hide minor scuffs by applying a solid surface cleaner, wiping away the excess and buffing dry with a soft cloth.
