Staron Solid Surface Countertops Care and Maintenance
In most cases, Staron can be repaired with ease if accidentally damaged. However, be sure to follow these guidelines to prevent any damage to Staron.
Staron has excellent heat resistant property compared with other ordinary
countertops. However, placing hot pans, as well as some heat-generating appliances such as frying pans or pots, can damage the surface. Always use a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet to protect Staron. Avoid subjecting Staron to temperatures over 80˚C (170˚F).
Avoid exposing Staron to strong chemicals such as paint removers and oven cleaners. Surfaces exposed to these chemicals should be promptly flushed with water.
Prolonged contact will cause spots that may require extensive repairs.
- Do not cut directly on a Staron® surface; always use a cutting board
- Run cold water when pouring boiling water into sinks
- Remove nail polish with a non-acetone-based nail polish remover and flush with water.
For more information, please contact your Staron dealer.
Any of the above can affect the surface finish and color. Dark colors may require more maintenance.
Staron's solid composition makes it easy to maintain because it is homogenous. Over time, it can be restored to look like new by removing stains and scratches with a detergent. Periodic maintenance to ensure optimal beauty is recommended.
Occasionally clean the surface with soap, water and an ammonia-based cleanser using a
sponge or damp cloth. Towel dry.
In order to remove severe and difficult stains:
Use an abrasive cleanser and a green Scotch-Brite (registered trademark of the 3M company) pad. Rub in a circular motion.
Use Soft Scrub diluted bleach and a white Scotch-Brite® pad. Rub in a circular motion.
Disinfecting Surfaces and Sinks
Occasionally wipe with diluted household bleach (water: bleach solution in 1:1 ratio).
All of the above sanding and polishing should be done in a circular motion.
