USE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR KITCHEN

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Indications and general tips
    Pads or abrasive agents such as bleach, solvents, alcohols, turpentine, acetone, detergents or ammonia liquids, shall never be used over the furniture´s surface.
    In case abrasive agents or toxic products are used, it is necessary to follow the instructions and the manufacturer´s recommendations, using any type of protection required for the product´s application.
    If you are unsure about the possible reaction caused by any cleaning product over the kitchen´s surface, the best thing to do is make a small test previously on a well-hidden part of the furniture and verify and analyse the possible alterations, consequences and effects.
    In order to remove faints just use a wet cloth with neutral detergent, and then dry it up with kitchen paper in order not to leave prints. For cleaning door corners it is recommended to use a cotton cloth or a cellulose cloth.
    Do not use steam-cleaning appliances underneath tall units, and avoid the excessive heat caused by coffee machines or other appliances.
    Additionally, they can also generate steam which, by the composition, of the furniture could modify the finish of the accessories and the interior fittings of low units, mainly on the sink base unit.
    On the cleaning furniture´s interior, usually are placed cloths, mops sponges that can produce oxidation in the rest of materials, mainly the furniture, due to its difficult drying and the environment´s constant humidity.
    Do not deposit directly on the countertop, any hot containers from the oven, use some type of stand which avoids the heat transfer to the countertop.
    Do not open the dishwasher’s door until it´s been 20 minutes since the washing cycle is finished.
    Always use the extractor hood when cooking to avoid grease residue is deposited on the furniture. Keep the filters cleaned and change them when necessary.
    The furniture holds plenty of load, to avoid its rupture it is recommended to spread the load uniformly around the furniture´s surface. It is quite important not to exceed the furniture´s maximum load.
    In order to store the dishes, pans, skillets and any heavy elements, we must use the bottom drawers, reserving the top drawers for lighter elements.
    Protect the furniture from the sunlight since it can deteriorate or alter the colours of the same.
  • Specific indications for laminated ad stratified fronts.
    It is enough to use a wet cloth with neutral detergent, and then dry it up with kitchen paper in order not to leave any prints.
    Prolonged water exposure or from any other liquid must be avoided to keep a perfect sealing.
  • Specific indications for synthetic fronts
    It is recommended to use a wet cloth with neutral soap and clean smooth texture to remove the possible faints that may have been accumulated in the door. The surface must be dried out with kitchen paper, leaving a clean base without prints. Due to their composition, the synthetic fronts offer great scratch and continuing efforts resistance.
  • Specific indications for synthetic acrylic fronts
    For the initial clean up use a 1% soapy solution and a clean soft cloth (no microfiber)
    To avoid a static load we recommend applying a antistatic plastic cleaner. The application of “ULTRA GLOSS Superpolish”, that Antalia offers, improves the door´s brightness and provides some extra protection to the surface.
    Clean cloths must be the only used for the cleaning of these type of doors. Mineral dirt such as sand grains or dust may cause damage on the surface, and the manufacturer does not offer warranty for these kind of alteration.
  • Specific indications for lacquered fronts
    It is enough to use a wet cloth with water (never dry) and then neutral detergent with kitchen paper in order not to leave any prints. If stubborn spots appear over lacquered bright fronts, you can apply ethyl alcohol quite diluted in water.
    Protect from the sunlight to avoid loss of colour.
  • Specific indications for wooden fronts
    Do not use very wet cloths to avoid that the varnish falls off and penetrates the interior producing wood dilating. In order to preserve the tone and original finish, you must not rub or clean with a high pressure if the faints are resistant. Dry up in the seams direction and avoid using products that contain waxes.
  • Specific indications for glass fronts
    Remove the dust and clean with a wet cloth using glass cleaner liquid, or water and dry with kitchen paper. Do not use abrasive or solvent products.
  • Specific indications for compact fronts
    These kinds of fronts are easy to clean. Just by using a wet cloth with water and soap, and then passing it over the surface, all faints caused by vapour or prints will be removed. If there was any resistant faint, you could add a bit more soap and apply some pressure in order to remove them.
  • Specific indications for integrated fronts
    These kind of fronts require special care and maintenance, since they tend to accumulate dirt and humidity, consequently all faints, water drops or any accumulated liquid must be quickly removed.
  • Specific indications for laminated worktops
    For its cleaning only use a wet cloth with soapy water and dry with a clean and dry cloth.
    Do not place directly on the surface any hot object; use a protector so the heat doesn´t surpass, avoiding to damage the countertop.
    The countertops have a gasket seal which avoids them from water contact deterioration.
    Do not cut directly over the countertop to avoid damaging the surface, for that purpose use wooden or plastic boards.
  • Specific indications for compact worktops
    Quite similar to laminated countertops, use a soapy wet cloth and pass it over the surface, then dry it up with a clean and dry cloth.
    These countertops are highly resistant to scratches, heat and different stress.
  • Specific indications for aluminium elements
    In order to clean knobs, baseboards and other aluminium elements, it is enough to use a wet sponge with water and neutral detergent.
    Dry up with a smooth cloth which doesn´t release any fluff.
    Do not use any mops or abrasive products that could damage the surface.
  • Specific indications for unions and worktop sealing
    A proper sealing to the walls is necessary to generate full impermeability during the installation of the countertops, both laminated and compact as well as the unions, in order to connect an area with the other. Doing this, we get a higher humidity resistance and we avoid getting filth between seals. Humidity can cause variations on the countertops, especially on laminated ones. It is recommended to fully dry the countertop after its use to avoid these kind of issues.
