How to Care for Your Solidsurface Worktop
Solid surface is a term used to describe Staron, Corian & Hi-Mac worktops.
This page explains how best to look after your worksurface & sink
Your Solidsurface worktop is a modern material, which requires little day to day care. The material is nonporous and simple to care for.
It is important to clean the surfaces regularly with water containing soap or a mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Rinse off surfaces with clean water.
Tougher stains can be removed using a product such as Cif original. Rub over the surface with a soft cloth and wash off with clean soapy water.
Before pouring boiling water into your Corian sink it is important to run some cold water into the bottom of the sink at the same time to avoid thermal shock
Never use an acid-based cleaner such as those containing methyl chlorine or acetone (nail varnish remover). Should a product of this type come into contact with the material, wash it off immediately with clean water, otherwise surface damage could occur.
Stained sinks can also be cleaned by filling them with water and a mild sterilizing product, leave overnight then wash down with clean soapy water.
Over time, the slight gloss finish will turn matt as it takes on the patina of day to day use.
Always use pan stands and trivets to protect the surface from hot and rough pans and utensils. Direct contact from iron, steel, ceramic, and copper vessels can scratch the surface.
Likewise, always use cutting boards to chop and slice food. Never cut directly onto the solid surfaces and avoid damage from other sharp objects.
