Caring For Those Special Surfaces in Your Spokane Home

March 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm | Category: Remodeling

Many of our clients frequently ask how to properly care for their Spokane countertops and floors. So here are a few tips just for you…

Laminate Counters:

DO use a nonabrasive, all-purpose cleaner. Rinse with water, use cotton cloth to dry. Wipe up immediately to prevent discoloration.

DON’T flood the laminate. Water penetrates seams, causing swelling. Don’t use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or scouring pads. Cleaners with acid will cause permanent discoloring.

Laminate Floors

DO wipe Spokane floors with a damp cloth or sponge.

DON’T wet mop or pour water on floor. Don’t wax, sand or stain.

Ceramic Tile:

DO use nonabrasive, all-purpose cleaners, a tub/tile/sink cleaner or liquid cleanser. Rinse thoroughly with water and buff tiles with dry cloth to prevent water stains. Re-apply grout sealer every 5-10 years.

DON’T use powdered abrasive cleaners that may scratch the surface.

Solid Surface Counters and Sinks:

DO use a nonabrasive all-purpose cleaner and a damp cloth on matte, satin or high gloss finishes. A scouring pad will remove cigarette burns and minor scratches.

DON’T use strong chemical cleaners such as toilet bowl cleaners, ceramic cooktop
cleaners, paint remover, drain cleaners, oven cleaners and lacquer thinners.

Natural Stone:

DO place coasters under glasses, and wipe up spills immediately. Use entry rugs to
capture abrasive dirt from foot traffic. Wash with warm water, a neutral pH cleaner and a nonabrasive cloth.
