Greensboro NC - Solid Surface Repair- Acetone Burns

Here they are finally. The pictures that I promised in my last post. As you can see, acetone can have a very damaging effect on solid surface countertops. I hope you can see too, all the actual melting and smearing of the material. You can click on these pics and see them up close.

This is what we ended up with after some extensive and vigorous belt sanding followed up with some more vigorous orbital sanding. It isn't totally without some scarring but it is very tough to see.

The homeowner was extremely happy and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Don't forget, keep the acetone away from your countertops.

Another countertop saved by Complete Solid Surface Refinishing in beautiful North Carolina.

I constantly find clients surprised at what sanding can do to these counters. Unless the damage is very deep, almost all imperfections can be fixed with some patience and a lot of sanding.
