Instructions for use of the solid surface counter tops

Solid surface products are hygienic, warm and pleasant to the touch, they have ideal ecological properties, they do not emit hazardous substances and they do not absorb any dirt or moisture.

It is not so difficult to keep them clean. The solid surface is easy to be restored but still there are certain instructions for use which are necessary to be followed:

1Do not expose the surface to the effect of such caustic substances as paint removers, turpentine, solvents, nail polish removers, oven and kitchen sinks cleansers. In case these substances get in touch with the surface of the counter top, clean it with water at once following relevant safety measures.

2Always use hot pads for frying pans, saucepans and electric heaters. If they are placed directly on the surface of the counter top they can damage the products’ appearance.

3Always use cutting boards and never cut directly on the working surface of the counter top. Despite the fact that small scratches can be removed, it is better to avoid scratching for preserving the product’s appearance.

4Do not stand on the counter top’s surface.

Use of Acrylic Sink

Fill the ¼ of the sink with water, add some bleacher, wipe the unfilled part of the sink with this solution and leave it all for 15 minutes. Then rinse the sink. Regularly wash the inner part of the sink with a Scotch Brite sponge.
