How to Care for Solid Surface Counter Tops

Posted by Ben Thompson on 10.25.10

Care: Solid Surfaces are not heat resistant; always use a hot pad or trivet. Always use a cutting board to avoid seeing scratch marks. While stain resistant, wipe up spills as soon as possible.

Cleaning: Use a damp cloth and a mild household detergent for routine cleaning. To remove most stains, hard water deposits, and minor scratching: use soapy water and an abrasive pad such as 3M Scotch Brite brand gray “kitchen scrub” pad. Don’t use a window cleaner. To remove deep stains and scratches; use fine sand paper and finish as above. Special care is needed to restore finish if damaged-consult fabricator for this. Avoid strong chemicals and solvents.
