Cabinet Doors Care and Maintenance Instructions

Our cabinet doors are made to the highest standards using modern manufacturing methods and materials and guaranteed for a full 12 months against manufacturing defects.
Misuse, neglect or accidental damage are not covered by the guarantee.  With appropriate in-home care and maintenance our doors, drawer fronts and matching accessories will provide years of trouble free performance.


PLEASE FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES CAREFULLY
CLEANING:
Many domestic multi-purpose cleaning agents are unsuitable for use on modern products. The use of aggressive chemicals can result in irreversible damage.

Use only a 5% washing-up liquid, 95% water solution, wiping with a damp (not wet) cloth. Finally dry with a soft clean cloth. Dust with a soft clean cloth only. Wipe up cooking splashes immediately.

DO NOT USE wax furniture polish, abrasive or aggressive cleaners, bleach or hydrochlorate (chlorine) based cleaners, multi-purpose cleaners, dilutes, acetone, alcohol, solvent or similar products like multisurface cleaners. 
 
WATER:
Wipe up any water spillages immediately especially around the sink area and dry with a soft cloth.
STEAM:
Kettles, deep fryers and similar small appliances on worktops should be positioned away from wall cabinet doors. Extractor fan should be used at all times when using the hob. 
HEAT:
Toasters generate a lot of radiated heat which escapes upwards - position your toaster away from wall cabinet doors. Light bulbs (incandescent or tungsten) also produce radiated heat as do T- Lights / Yankee Candles which are also a fire hazard. 
HOBS (built-in or free standing cooker top)
Any hob, electric or gas, can produce up to 3Kw of heat for each ring - that's the equivalent of a room heater. Unless the intense heat is absorbed by a pan or cooking vessel, and/or vented away by an extractor, the surrounding carpentry/furniture will suffer a detrimental effect, and within a short time can become distressed with irreversible damage. Please follow the following guidelines when using the hob.
  • If you have an extractor fitted above the hob use it at all times.
  • Integrated extractors are hidden behind a door and should automatically operate the fan when the door is opened, if not, switch on the fan
  • Hobs are not to be used as a room heater. To quickly warm a cold kitchen/dinner or supplement the central heating system better invest in an electric fan heater for two reasons. 1) they are a more efficient room heater 2)  they will not discolour your kitchen.  So, never operate any hob burner without placing a pan on it.
  • New or replacement gas appliances by law have to be installed by a GasSafe approved fitter   
URGENT UPDATE - Do Not use hand-held Steam Cleaners as heavily promoted by Karcher, Morphy Richards, Vax or the like. They are NOT "the perfect solution" as advertised, however, they are ideal to strip wallpaper.
