Solid surface worktops are completely non-porous, which is a very useful quality to have in a kitchen worktop. This results in two key advantages for solid surfaces: firstly, they are easy to maintain; secondly, they are hygienic. Non-porous surfaces have the added advantage of being resistant to bacteria, mould and germs, as they have no way to enter the material. Very useful for a kitchen that may see a lot of traffic or for those living busy lives..
Daily maintenance requires nothing less than a wipe down with a cloth or a sponge. Spillages can be easily wiped away, without leaving a stain or soaking into the material. Near zero-porosity means that maintenance demands of solid surfaces are very low indeed, keeping it looking like new has never been easier.
