Care and Maintenance
Damage may occur if countertop is mistreated. To help prevent this from happening, the use of the following simple ways are recommended to maintain original elegance and beauty of HI-MACS®for years to come.
Normal cleaning only requires a damp cloth and a mild cleanser. If it was matte-finished, the use of abrasive cleaner is recommended. Clean the matte-finished surface in a circular motion to maintain uniformity. Avoid the use of strong acidic cleansers (like the ones designed for drains, toilets or ovens). Some of these cleansers might cause whitening, which can be difficult to remove.
A few common sense precautions, include not placing pans directly from the burner or oven on countertops. Although HI-MACS® can withstand temperatures of up to 225 degrees, prolonged or extreme heat can cause yellowing.
Troublesome spills and stains, like food dye, tea and fruit drinks can be removed with full strength bleach followed by a general cleaner flushed with water. Not to let the bleach remain on the surface for more than five minutes. If a lit cigarette came in contact with countertop, a nicotine stain or a scorch mark can occur. Simply use an abrasive cleaner or buff in a circular motion with special pad to remove.
