Care and Maintenance

Laminates are becoming more and more popular in the design and construction materials industry. Although this is a high-quality product line, in order to not be damaged and durable over time, users also need to have a way to preserve it. Here are a few ways to help in the care and maintenance process for laminate material over time, recommended by the global brand Wilsonart®.

1. How to take care of your Wilsonart® laminate products?

The simplest way to clean Wilsonart® laminate is to wipe over the surface with a clean cloth, mild detergent (e.g. dishwashing liquid) and clean water. For more stubborn stains like coffee, you can use a soft brush to clean.

If the stain still doesn’t go away, use a mixture of baking soda and water, then scrub the stain with a soft-bristled brush. Be careful not to rub vigorously, as this can damage the laminate surface, especially products with glossy surfaces. 

For stubborn stains that cannot be resolved with the above methods, use an undiluted solid bleach mixture or nail polish remover. Apply the mixture to the stain and let it sit for no more than two minutes. Then rinse several times with warm water and dry it with a soft cloth. If the stain starts to fade and the color of the laminate is not affected, continue cleaning until the surface is clean.


2. Some maintenance methods for Wilsonart® laminate

Always wipe the laminate surface thoroughly with water after cleaning. Even a small amount of detergent left on the surface can be reactivated by moisture, leaving a permanent mark on the material.


When using knives, scissors or any other sharp object on the laminate surface, be sure to use something cover underneath. Their sharpness can damage the surface of laminates, affect their beauty and reduce their resistance to stains/abrasion.


For areas that are not cleaned regularly, you can use a furniture cleaner (not oil-free). Remember to stir the furniture polish several times a year to avoid building up in the bottle. Furniture polish also helps cover light scratches.


3. A few notes of caution

  • Limit the long-term exposure of the laminate surface with detergents because it will make the colors of the product fade away.

  • Do not place cleaner liquid on laminate surfaces without protection. Immediately remove spilled chemicals and wipe repeatedly with water.

  • Steel wool and other abrasive pads will damage the laminate surface. Do not use them to clean and do not leave them on the surface, the metal may rust and leave stains.

  • Do not use acidic cleaners as they can damage the laminate.
