Imperial Counters specializes in installing laminate countertops in Woodbury, and we here at Imperial Counters are often asked for recommendations on how to best care for and clean them after they have been installed. Here are a few of our tips on how to keep your new laminate countertops looking as good as new.

Caring for and cleaning your new laminate countertops is very easy. Because they are nonporous, bacteria and germs cannot get into the countertops themselves and linger and cause health problems. So you never have to worry about disinfecting them. All you need to keep laminate countertops clean is warm water, a soft cloth and a mild soap. Simply wipe them down any time something spills on them and that is all you need to do.

If you do somehow end up with a stain on your laminate countertops, do not worry! Stain removal is a fairly easy process that involves a 3:1 ratio mix of baking soda and water. Spread the mixture over the stain, let it dry for about three to five minutes and then wipe it away. You do not need to scrub it. As a matter of fact, if you try to scrub in this mixture, it could cause more harm than good by scratching the surface of the countertops. Just leave it alone and then gently wipe it away after a few minutes are up.

Just be sure to keep certain liquids away from your laminate countertops. For example, drain cleaners can permanently damage your countertops, so just be sure not to use drain cleaner around your countertops if you can help it. And if you do need to use drain cleaner, be sure to lay something down on top of your countertops to protect them in case you accidentally spill the cleaner.

Laminate countertops are a great addition to any home. They are easy to care for and maintain, and with minimal effort on your part, they will continue to look great throughout the years. This makes them an excellent choice for families of all shapes and sizes. Plus, they are a great choice for kitchen of all styles because laminate countertops come in such a variety of colors and patterns.
