Solid Core Phenolic – Cleaning and Maintenance


Solid phenolic is somewhat similar in maintenance to high pressure laminate; this is due to the customizable melamine face. The bonded phenolic core gives it a substantial moisture resistance, giving it the capability of hose-down cleaning methods.


The methods used to clean the bathroom partition differ on the type of soil found on a surface.

  • Smudges, fingerprints, or other residues found on a solid phenolic bathroom stall’s surface can be removed with a mild cleaning solution. Smooth surfaces can be cleaned with a cloth and/or sponge; textured surfaces can be cleaned with a soft brush. Rinse thoroughly, and dry.
  • More difficult stains likes oil, crayon, lipstick, or greased soil can be removed with a general purpose cleaner, or a mild degreaser. Dampen either a cloth, sponge, or a soft bristled brush with the corresponding cleaner and apply it to the affected area. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  • Extremely difficult soiling, like water and soiling, requires a more powerful cleaner than a mild detergent/general purpose cleaner. A bathroom cleaner containing acetic acid is a great choice for removal of the stain. Wet a cloth, sponge, or soft bristled brush with the desired cleaner, and rinse/dry thoroughly.
  • Solid Phenolic bathroom partitions whose surfaces have been affected by graffiti cannot be cleaned with ordinary cleaners and/or detergents. Instead, they have to be appropriately treated with a graffiti remover. Spray or wipe the remover onto the surface with a cloth or sponge, and rinse/dry fully.
