Corian® Solid Surface Care and Maintenance
Corian® Solid Surface was created for a lifetime of easy care. As a solid, nonporous surface, Corian® Solid Surface can be maintained with minimum care to retain the original appearance. Just follow the simple guidelines listed here to keep your Corian® Solid Surface looking like new.
Corian® Solid Surface Routine Care
There are three types of Corian® Solid Surface finishes: matte/satin, semigloss and high-gloss. Contact your Corian® Design sales expert if you are unsure of your finish. Typically, lighter colors have a matte finish, while darker colors have a semi-gloss or gloss finish. All sinks and lavatories are finished with a matte/satin finish. Some guidance may vary by finish type. Clean spills promptly, many materials only stain if left in contact with the surface for extended periods.
Warm soapy water, ammonia-based cleaners or commercially available solid surface cleaners will remove most dirt and residue from all types of finishes. Avoid window cleaners, however, as they can leave a waxy build-up that dulls the surface. Experience has shown that a film builds up on the surface if water is left to dry on the countertop. This film will dull the look of the countertop making the finish appear blotchy and uneven. To prevent buildup of the film, it is very important to wipe the countertop completely dry after spills and cleaning. Some Corian® colors may require more frequent cleaning to maintain a uniform finish. Darker colors tend to require more attention than lighter colors. Over time, even with proper care, your countertop will acquire a patina, changing the appearance of the finish.
