To maintain the laminate’s lasting beauty, cleaning with a solution of warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent is all that should be required in most cases.
Most stains may be removed with most non-abrasive household cleaners such as FANTASTIK, Glass Plus, or Windex. Light scrubbing with soft bristles may be necessary to remove stains on some textured surfaces.
If the stain persists, use a paste of baking soda and water and apply with a soft bristled brush. Do not scrub excessively as it will remove or damage the finish.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS as it will scratch or discolour your surface.
SOLID SURFACES CARE
Routine daily care and maintenance of Corian is relatively easy. Soapy water or ammonia-based cleaners will remove most dirt and stains from the countertop. However, there are certain techniques that should be used to remove the more difficult stains. However, if you are unsure, do not hesitate to call Counter Effects and one of our technicians will assist you.
Heat and Other Damage
Even though, Corian is quite resistant to heat, you should always use a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet to protect your countertop. Beware of the heat generating appliances that are also used in your home. (e.g. fryers, steamers, etc) These appliances should not placed directly on a Corian countertop. It could cause damage to the surface.
Additional guidelines to keep in mind are:
Do not cut directly on Corian countertops
Avoid exposing Corian to strong chemicals, such as paint removers or oven cleaners, acetone based nail-polish. If contact does happen, flush immediately with water.
Stains and Burns
Nicks, scratches and cuts are inevitable with any high-use product. Because Corian is solid all the way through, it’s easy to renew it to its original state.
Most minor scratches can easily be repaired with a light abrasive cleanser and use of product like Scotch-Brite pad.
You can hand-sand the area with 400-grit wet and dry paper. Wet the surface before starting.
If none of these options work for you or you are unsure about what to do, do not hesitate to call Counter Effects and a representative will be happy to help you.
