Cleaning & Maintenance of Solid Surfaces

Useful tips for your customers to have after installing a solid surface countertop or sink in their home.

Most dirt & Residue  – Use soapy water, ammonia-based cleaner (not window cleaner), rinse and wipe completely dry.

Preventing hard water marks – Rinse and wipe completely dry after cleaning; clean up spills before they dry.

Removing hard water marks – Use a cleanser formulated for removing hard water marks such as CLR or Lime-A-Way.

Difficult residue – Spray residue with Deep Cleaner for DuPont Corian® from Stone Care International.  Follow instructions on the bottle.  Wash area with soapy water, rinse and wife completely dry.

Disinfecting – Occasionally, wipe surface with diluted household bleach (1 part water/1 part bleach).  Rinse top thoroughly with water and wipe completely dry.
Solid Surface Sinks and Lavatories:

Cleaning –  Follow procedures above or use Soft Scrub® and a green Scotch-Brite® pad to remove residue. Rub green Scotch-Brite® pad over entire sink to blend in finish. NOTE: Do Not use Scotch-Brite® on the countertop surface.

Disinfecting – Fill your sink 1/4 full with diluted household bleach (1 part water/1 part bleach). Be sure to get some of the solution into the overflow opening to disinfect. Let the solution stay in the sink for 15 minutes; then wash sides and bottom as solution drains. Rinse out the sink with water.

Avoid getting the bleach solution in your eyes or bare skin. Always follow the bleach manufacturer’s safety instructions when working with bleach.

To enhance the gloss level on semi-gloss and high-gloss finishes, use a countertop polish such as Countertop Magic®, Hope’s Countertop Polish® or Enhance Countertop Polish®.
