Cabinet Doors, Drawers, Handles & Interiors

Cleaning Laminated Doors and Cabinets’ Interiors

Occasional marks can be removed with a soft damp cloth, warm water and a very mild detergent. Avoid over wetting. Moisture will not harm the surface of these doors but in order to protect the doors never allow water to lie on any surface, always wipe away any spillage immediately. Also cooking splashes should be wiped up immediately using a damp cloth.

Wipe dry with a clean cloth.

Do not use:

  • abrasive or aggressive cleaning agents
  • wax-furniture polish
  • bleach or other hypochlorite (chlorine) based cleaners
  • multi-purpose cleaners
  • acetones
  • dilutes
  • alcohol
  • solvent or similar products on the door, as this will damage the surface
  • scouring pads, wire wool or similar cleaning aids

To prevent heat damage we strongly advise that extractors are always used above working hobs and that ignited jets of a hob are never in use without saucepans above. In addition, heat deflectors should be used where laminated doors are positioned next to ovens that do not have factory fitted metal heat deflectors. We will not take responsibility for heat damaged laminated doors if the mentioned preventative measures have not been taken.

We strongly recommend, to ensure your kitchen remains is excellent condition, that users do not overload the shelving unit within the kitchen. Our recommendation is a maximum of 10kG per meter. If damage is caused to the shelving unit by overloading it then our warranty will not cover the repairs required.

Cleaning Kitchen Cabinets’ Interiors

Wipe up spills, splatters and water spots as they occur – keep the cabinets dry.

Clean as needed with a soft, lint free cloth. Use a mild detergent or soap and warm water.

Dry surfaces immediately with a soft cloth.

Do not use:

  • products with bleach, ammonia or abrasive additives
  • a dishcloth or sponge – it could contain remnants of grease or detergents
  • scouring pads, steel wool or powdered cleaners.

Avoid:

  • placing small kitchen appliances where heat is directed onto cabinet surfaces, e.g. kettle or toaster under wall units.
  • oven cleaners to come in contact with wood finishes
  • draping damp clothes or dishtowels over cabinet doors excessive moisture can cause permanent damage

Electric kettles should not be placed under the wall unit while boiling due to excess moisture building up on the wall carcasses. The extractor hood should be active whenever you are using the hob. Filters within the hood should be replaced on a regular basis to avoid excess moisture building up on the carcass around the hood. These can, in extreme circumstances, cause swelling to the kitchen carcass, which can cause permanent damage to your kitchen. Our warranty will not cover damage of this type if our guidelines have not been followed.

Stainless Steel Accessories

To maintain the best appearance, only use warm water and a mild detergent ensuring that the surface is rinsed thoroughly and then dried with a soft cloth.

Chlorides such as bleach or common salt and acids of any kind can damage stainless steel surfaces. If a spillage occurs rinse immediately and thoroughly with plenty of fresh water and then dry with a soft cloth.

Avoid wire wool, abrasives, scouring powders or harsh cleaning products. These may scratch or permanently discolour the surface.

Metal objects that may rust should never be left in contact with stainless steel.
