At Omega, we proudly offer Corian® as one of our beautiful and popular work surfaces of choice. Corian can be made, moulded and formed to any specification we have designed for you in-house using the technology. Our Corian solutions are ideal for kitchen worktops, but also we have designed and installed our corian solutions into bathrooms, spa surroundings, wet rooms, vanity tops, etc.. and due to its excellent hygienic properties we have also used it in doctor and dental surgeries.
Our Corian® solutions can be whatever your heart desires. Non-porous and stain-resistant, Corian® is easy to clean, making it an ideal surface for healthcare and food preparation environments. It’s also durable and easy to renew, because the colour runs straight through. Plus, Corian® solid surfaces, adhesives and sealants are low VOC, nontoxic and nonallergenic to humans.
Corian vanity tops, shower walls, bases and bath surrounds are convenient due to their ease of cleaning. A simple wipe with a soapy sponge, followed by a rinse is all it takes to care for a Corian® bathroom surface. However, lime scale, soap build-up or water spotting do call for more attention. A Deep Clean as referring to in our ‘Caring for your Corian’ tab using a damp sponge or cloth and a mild abrasive cleanser is all that is needed.
The Colour of our Corian
The images of Corian and Corian Worktops that we display on our website are the best possible representation of the material without seeing it for your own eyes. The photographs are subject to the colour reproduction process of the photography that was used to capture the images, as well as the screen that you are viewing it on.
The environment in which something is viewed also makes a contribution and, as such, we strongly advise that our clients come to see the corian samples in person at the Omega Interiors showroom in Hull.
Caring for your Corian
By nature, Corian® is easy to clean, easy to care for and easy to live with. Year after year, with proper care, corian can remain as beautiful and elegant as the day it was installed. However, corian is unlike any other material and there is a unique way to look after it. So let go of any assumptions you might have about caring for corian. The guidelines below help to ensure your corian surface continues to perform for many years to come.
Prevention is always better than cure! Outlined are some helpful tips to help you understand how best to treat your Corian® surface, ensuring you get the most out of your investment in Corian® products.
• We recommend that you treat your corian surface as you would a timber one. You should not be using your corian surface as a cutting surface. Always use a seperate cutting board and avoid sliding items across the surface, particularly on darker colours.
• Although corian is resistant to high temperatures you should never place hot pants and heat emitting appliances direction on a corian surface. Always use heat pads or trivets (with rubber feet!) for all cookware and/or leave the cookware to cool on the cooktop first. Be aware that modern appliances reach higher temperatures quicker and often hold heat much longer.
• Be aware of what your corian surface has been exposed to. Harsh chemicals may damage the surface. Flush harsh chemicals with plenty of water immediately and use non-acetone based nail polish removers to remove any nail polish.
Cleaning your Corian
• All day to day cleaning can be achieved with a few ‘Simple Clean’ methods. Avoid using abrasive scouring pads for any routine cleaning.
• After food preparation and cooking, simply wire your corian surface with a damp sponge or cloth. Thanks to the non-porosity of corian, this will hygienically clean your corian surface.
• Use soap and water, or an ammonia based cleaning along with a damp sponge and cloth to deal with most kinds of dirt, grime and muck! Just rinse it clean afterwards.
• To help with this water marks, wipe your surface with a damp sponge, cloth or towel. Hard water can often leave visible marks on corian; just like any of your glassware. Afterwards it should always be wiped again with a dry towel or soft cloth.
• For those really stubborn stains you may need to give your corian surface more of a thorough ‘Deep Clean’ clean using a mild abrasive cleaner or paste cleanser. Firmly wipe your corian surface with a non scratch, non abrasive pad or cloth using a wide circular motion. Always finish this by rinsing and wiping again with a clean damp cloth or sponge.
• To help with any light marks and scuffs you can simply wipe your surface firmly with a damp sponge or cloth and you may also you a very mildly abrasive cleanser. However, if this does not help, call us on 01482 824804 for further advice.
