What is Formica Solid Surface?

Formica Solid Surface Countertops are the result of today’s high technology to give homeowners a safe, durable option without having to sacrifice beauty. A resin based, solid surface countertop, Formica Solid Surface countertops are one of the most durable solid surface options available. A non-porous surface, Formica countertops resist mold, mildew, bacteria and other germs to provide your kitchen with a safe environment to prepare food as well as entertain and take care of your everyday family needs. Formica provides a deep, gorgeous appearance that is resistant to heat, scratches, bacteria and mild impact. Homeowners can rest assured that when they design their kitchens with Formica countertops they are providing their family with a safe, durable environment that can withstand the kitchen with even the highest traffic.

Care & Maintenance of Formica Solid Surface

Since Formica Solid Surfaces are non-porous, it is possible to keep them clean by simply wiping them down with warm water and a soft cloth. A mild dish soap or detergent can also be used when doing daily cleaning. For tougher spills or stains, a general purpose cleaner can be used. Regardless of the type of cleaner used, it is important to always finish the cleaning by rinsing the countertop with clean water and completely drying it with a soft cloth to prevent any residue buildup or water spots on the finish. Formica Solid Surfaces that have a matte finish can be cleaned a little harder than those with a satin or high gloss finish as it doesn’t pose the risk of losing its shine. To keep the appearance of your solid surface countertops uniform, it might be necessary to use an abrasive cleaner periodically as well. Stronger spills or stains might require a little extra cleaning. Spills such as fruit juice or tea can be treated with full strength bleach for two to five minutes. This should then immediately be followed by a regular cleaner as well as rinsed with clean water and then thoroughly dried.

Preventing Damage

While Formica Solid Surface Countertops are known for their durability, it is imperative to take certain precautions to keep its beauty alive. When using any type of heat source around your countertop, it is important to use a hot pad or trivet between the heat source and your countertop to prevent burns or marring. It’s also important to use a cutting board or other surface in between your countertop and the knife to prevent any scratches or nicks in your countertop.
