Laminate Counter Top Care & Maintenance
Laminate is designed for beauty and durability. Like any surfacing material, however, it can be damaged by abuse and carelessness. When you use it where it is recommended and care for it properly, it will give you years of satisfaction.
  • Protecting the Surface
    Before selecting the surface material, consider the type of use it will receive, as well as its texture, color, and reflective values. A rough-textured surface has different advantages, depending upon use, than a smooth-textured surface. High gloss finish laminates, for example, are not recommended for use in heavy-duty applications such as kitchen countertops.

  • Scratch and Impact Protection
    Laminate is resistant to scratches and impacts under normal use conditions.
Preventing Counter Top Damage:
  • Use cutting boards, chopping blocks, or other protective surfaces.
  • Do not cut, chop, slice, pound, or hammer on any laminate surface.
  • Heavy blows from a hammer or meat tenderizer may crack or gouge the surface.
  • Ceramics and abrasive objects can cause scratching and premature wear--do not slide these items across the surface.
  • Follow recommendations for cleaning--do not use abrasive cleaners, powders, steel wool, sandpaper, or Scotch-Brite® scouring pads.
  • Hot Objects
    • Cookware still hot from the stove or oven, as well as electric skillets, waffle irons, curling irons, irons, and hot rollers, should not be placed directly on laminate surfaces. Prolonged exposure to temperatures of 140°F (60°C) or higher may cause the laminate to separate from the core material.
    • Use a trivet, insulated hot pad or other protective device beneath all hot cookware, heat generating appliances, or other heated objects.
    • Do not place lighted cigarettes directly on laminate surfaces.

  • Ordinary Cleaning
    • Laminate is very easy to clean.
    • In most cases, you only need to use a clean, damp, nonabrasive cotton cloth and a mild liquid detergent or household cleaner.
    • Rinse with clean water, using a clean, nonabrasive cotton cloth.
    • Dry the surface with a soft, clean, nonabrasive cotton cloth.
    • Tip: Periodic application of a self-cleaning wax can help minimize future staining.
