Aftercare and Maintenance

Follow these simple guidelines to keep your new kitchen looking perfect for years to come.

As with all timber based items our products should not be stored or installed in a newly plastered or damp environment. To clean cabinet and door surfaces use a soft clean cloth, warm soapy water should be used to dampen the cloth (not wet).

Dry off with a soft dry cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning liquids or items such as scouring pads, Brillo Pads, etc.

 

To avoid damage by excessive heat please follow these simple guidelines:

  • When installing doors adjacent to ovens always ensure that doors are shielded by using heat deflector strips
  • Never use any appliance which generates high levels of heat or concentrated steam (such as a toaster, kettle or pressure cooker) directly under or adjacent to a door or panel.

 

 

High Gloss Colours

After removing the protective film please allow the surface to cure for seven days before cleaning or wiping. To clean the surface of the doors, wipe using a soft cloth with a mild, non-abrasive, dishwashing detergent diluted in warm water. The mix should be 1% detergent to 99% warm water. You should never use any vinegar based detergents, solvents, abrasive detergents, white spirit or furniture polish.

Polishing High Gloss finishes will leave minor scratches and polish marks, this is normal with this type of finish.

The kit is suitable for use with all door finishes and is especially effective on high gloss finishes.
