In Singapore, many people use solid surface countertops in their house for various purposes in the kitchen and bathrooms respectively. Like anything else, solid surface countertops need to be cared for properly and maintained. They must be well polished to prevent them from becoming dull overtime.

6 Tips On How To Polish And Maintain Solid Surface Countertops

Below are useful tips on how to polish solid surface countertop.

1. Only use the recommended detergent.
When polishing your solid surface countertop, always ensure that you use the recommended cleaning detergent. The main reason why many residents in Singapore are actually unable to clean their solid surface countertops well is because they use the wrong detergent. To remove the tough stains always use ammonia based household cleaner, warm soapy water or any other dedicated countertop cleaner.

Avoid using window cleaners as they can leave waxy build up that can easily dull the surface. Abrasive cleaners are also not recommended for solid surface countertops due to the risk of scratching. You can also clean your solid surface countertop with a general purpose cleaner. To remove hard water stains, spray calcium, rust stain remover and lime onto the solid surface counterpart.

2. Use soft cloth
Clean your solid surface countertop with a soft cloth. Don’t use a rough cleaning object like washing brush because it can easily scratch your solid countertop thus making it dull and unattractive. Using a soft cloth or rug will help remove the all the stains without damaging the countertop. For effective polishing and satin removal, always scrub in a circular motion.

3. Dry immediately after cleaning.
If water is left to dry on the surface, film will build up and this film will actually dull the countertop surface making the finish to appear uneven and blotchy. To prevent film build up, it is very important to actually wipe the countertop completely dry using a soft rug or cloth immediately after cleaning and spills.

4. Avoid heat and other chemical damage.
Solid surface materials can withstand heat better that many other surface materials. However, exposing the solid surface countertop to waffle irons, electric frying pans hot pans, crock post and other heat generating appliances can easily damage the countertop surface. To prevent heat damage, always ensure that you use a trivet with rubber feet between the appliance and the countertop.

Also allow cookware to cool before placing it in to the countertop. Strong chemicals like oven cleaners and paint removers can also damage the countertop surface and therefore such chemicals should be kept away from it. In a case a chemical spill occurs, promptly flush the surface with water to fully neutralize the chemical. Chemical and heat damage not only make the countertop surface to be dull but can also weaken and reduce it lifespan. It is therefore very important to avoid exposing your solid surface countertop on direct heat and harmful chemicals.

5. Seek professional assistance.
You can actually seek professional assistance from companies that offers these services. Seeking assistance from professionals will ensure that your solid surface countertop is well polished. In Singapore, there are very many companies that offers this service and you should be very careful when selecting .

To avoid disappointment, ensure that you only chose a company that offer excellent services. You can ask your relative or friend to help choose the best company based on experience. Because of busy working schedule that most people have in Singapore, sometime it becomes very difficult to attend to everything that requires your attention. This leaves most resident with no choice but to look for help. Select a company based on their expertise, experience, service delivery and affordability.
