Basix Solid Surface Care & Maintenance
BASIX SOLID SURFACE CARE & MAINTENANCE TIPS
Routine care and maintenance will keep products from Basix Surfaces looking new and as great as the day they were installed.
Cleaning with readily available countertop cleaners will remove every-day dirt and stains. Stubborn stains can be removed with bleach, bleach-based cleansers or non-abrasive cleansers such as SoftScrub®.
DO NOT USE HARSH CHEMICALS
The surface can be damaged by harsh substances, including chemicals such as paint thinner, acetone based nail polish remover, drain cleaners and toilet bowl cleaners.
PREVENT HEAT DAMAGE
As with all countertop materials, it is important to minimize direct heat exposure. High temperatures and abrupt changes in temperature can damage the surface. To prevent damage, always use hot pads or trivets under frying pans, pots and heat-generating appliances.
REMOVING MINOR SCRATCHES IN SOLID SURFACING ONLY
Lightly sand in random, circular motion using ScotchBrite® or similar pads followed by light scrubbing with an abrasive cleanser or Soft Scrub®. Although lightly sanding with 220 or higher grit sandpaper can help to remove scratches, it is recommended that this only be performed by a solid surface professional.
REMOVING MINOR CUTS
As with all countertop materials, you should not cut directly on your Basix Surfaces countertop. Always use an appropriate cutting board when cutting on your countertop. Although sanding with 220 or higher grit sandpaper can help to remove cuts in solid surface countertops, it is recommended that this only be performed by a solid surface professional.
BASIX SOLID SURFACE SINKS
Clean your sink with readily available kitchen or bath surface cleaners. Soft Scrub® or abrasive cleansers with a sponge or ScotchBrite®pad may also be used periodically to remove residue.
Fill your sink 1/4 full with diluted household bleach (1 part water/1 part bleach). Be sure to get some of the solution into the overflow opening to disinfect that area. Let the solution stay in the sink for 15 minutes,then wash sides and bottom as the solution drains. Rinse the sink with water.
