How To: Remove Deep Scratches from Solid Surfacing Countertops

  
  
  

We posted earlier on removing minor solid surfacing scratches that come from everyday wear and tear on your countertop. For more severe scratches, you can fix the damage yourself but the process will require a few more steps:

Part One

-Soak a 3M Scotch-Brite® #7448 (ultra fine) pad in clean water

-Rub the area you wish to repair in a circular motion using mild pressure

-Rinse the area thoroughly with water and completely dry the surface

-If the damage has not been repaired, repeat steps 1-3

Part Two

-Soak a 3M Scotch-Brite® #7445 (super fine) pad in clean water

-In a circular motion, rub the area previously sanded with the #7448 pad

-Rinse the area thoroughly with water and completely dry the surface

-Check to see if the repaired area has been blended back to the original finish

-It may be necessary to rub the entire surface to blend the repaired area

In some cases, deep scratches in solid surfacing may require the use of both sandpaper and an abrasive pad. The sandpaper and pad selection will be based on the solid surfacing finish. Please refer to our Use and Care guide for more information.
