ACRYLIC GLOSS

SPECIAL MAINTENANCE:
After removing the protective film, the surface is particularly sensitive to scratches and presents electrostatic phenomena: to increase scratch resistance and solve the problem of electrostatics permanently, it is necessary to operate in the following way:

  1. Use a soft cotton cloth to wash the surface with a solution of water (99%) and mild detergent (1%).
    Do not use cleaners containing alcohol or abrasives or solvents.
  2. Rinse the surface and let it dry for 24 hours.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE:
For daily cleaning of wooden doors, use a microfiber cloth or a cloth dampened with water. Alternatively, use a solution of water and alcohol or water and mild detergent, taking care to rinse well and dry the surface with a soft cloth.

AVOID:

  • The use of steel wool or products containing abrasive pastes.
  • The use of stain removers, bleach, acetone, ammonia and trichlorethylene.

COUNTERTOPS

LAMINATE POSTFORMING

For routine cleaning, use a microfiber or soft cloth. In the case of stubborn stains, use a mild non-abrasive detergent or glass cleaner. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth to avoid streaking and dullness.

AVOID:

  • The joints of the countertops, that is, at the stove, sink and between the countertop and the wall, avoid letting water sit by drying it immediately with the utmost care to avoid any leakage which could cause irreparable damage.
  • Placing pans, coffee makers, irons and any other object on the countertop if they are particularly hot.
  • The use of steel wool or products containing abrasive pastes.
  • The use of aggressive substances.
SOLIDTOP LAMINATE

AVOID:

  • Placing pans, coffee makers, irons and any other object on the countertop if they are particularly hot.
  • The use of stain removers, bleach, acetone, ammonia, or trichlorethylene.
  • The use of steel wool or products containing abrasive pastes.
STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless steel should be cleaned with a sponge dampened with water and a mild detergent. Always rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft or microfiber cloth. For water stains, use only specific products for stainless steel , following the instructions on the product label. In the case of stubborn stains, use a sponge dampened with white vinegar. For limestone or hot grease, use warm white vinegar or rubbing alcohol, then rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. During cleaning operations, always take care to follow the direction of the satin finish of the steel. At the joints of the countertop, that is, at the stove, sink and between the countertop and the wall, avoid allowing water to sit by drying it immediately with the utmost care to prevent leakage that could cause irreparable damage.

AVOID:

  • The use of cleaning products containing abrasive or corrosive materials, shavings, wool, brushes or scrapers made of ordinary steel.
  • Direct contact with sources of heat and water vapour.
  • The use of solvents or detergents containing ammonia.
  • The use of products containing chlorine (bleach, hydrochloric acid), even if they are diluted.
  • The use of corrosive substances (acid and muriatic acids in general) to clean the floor under the appliance.
SOLIDSURFACE

Solidsurface is a non-porous material that provides a high degree of hygiene and is therefore suitable for contact with food and easy to clean. Its natural beauty can be maintained simply by regular cleaning.

  • Daily cleaning:
    Although liquids cannot penetrate the countertop, it is better to remove them immediately. Use a cloth dampened with water and soap. Always make motions in a circular motion.
  • Removing stains:
    To remove stains caused by the spilling of liquids such as vinegar, coffee, tea , lemon juice, dyes, red wine, vegetable oils, etc., first, always follow the simpler methods listed above. Progressively proceed with an abrasive sponge (e.g. Scotch-Brite) and a detergent or an ammonia-based solution (e.g. Mastro Lindo). Only for particularly stubborn stains such as saffron and lily pollen or for significant scratches should be used an abrasive sponge with bleach. Rinse several times with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. To restore the original look, pass a damp cloth with a mild cream abrasive cleanser (e.g. Cif) over the entire surface using a circular motion.
  • Removing stains created by chemicals:
    Accidental spills caused by chemicals such as cleaning products for metal stoves, acids, thinners, nail polish removers, acetone -based products, etc., should be flushed promptly with large amounts of soap and water to avoid damage to the countertop. Uncontrolled or prolonged exposure to chemicals may damage the surface.
  • Scratches:
    As a result of normal daily use, the countertop will develop slight signs of abrasion over time. In the case of light surface scratches, you should clean the countertop vigorously in a circular motion with a sponge soaked in water with a mild detergent. Do not cut or chop on the countertop, as this will damage the surface.
  • Heat::
    Avoid direct contact with cookware removed from the stove or oven or that are still hot, hot irons, incandescent coffee makers, deep fryers, hot pans, etc., always use protective rubber feet. Always use pots and pans that do not exceed the size of the stove, placing them on it centrally. A pot that is too large can cause damage to the surrounding surfaces.
  • ntegrated Heat Sinks:
    Avoid pouring boiling liquids directly into sinks without first turning on the cold water tap. This will avoid the risk of thermal shock.
  • Cleaning of integrated sinks (once/ twice a week):
    Remove all traces of oil or fat from normal food preparation using a normal detergent. Subsequently spray the sink with a solution of ¾ bleach and ¼ water and leave it for a few hours. Exposure time should be less than 16 hours. Rinse with a damp cloth. To remove limestone that is deposited around the sink, faucet, or drain, rub with circular movements using an abrasive sponge soaked in water. Also, use a specific product for the removal of limestone (e.g. Viakal). Rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry with a soft cloth.
QUARTZ

For routine cleaning, use a microfiber cloth or a damp cloth and a mild detergent. In the case of stubborn stains, kitchen sponges can be used, even on the abrasive side. Instead use bleach or products containing bleach moderately. Denatured alcohol may leave streaks. The countertop is highly resistant to heat and overheating, but it is strongly recommended to avoid thermal shock, always putting thermal barriers (e.g. trivets) between the hot pans and surfaces. The countertop is also very resistant to abrasions and scratches, however, to maintain its original lustre and quality, the use of cutting boards is always recommended.

AVOID:

  • The repeated and continuous use of particularly abrasive sponges.
GRANITE

The granite countertop has a structure that is highly resistant to abrasion and impact stresses. It has also been adequately treated with specific water repellents, however, this does not guarantee total protection, but rather delays the absorption of liquids. After each use, especially around the sink and stove, clean it thoroughly with water or a mild detergent, then wipe with a soft cloth. For a more intense cleaning, steel wool can be used without any problems. Stains should be removed immediately: any streaks, however, tend to disappear by absorption with time.

AVOID:

  • Placing pots, pans, dishes, glasses and bottles directly on the countertop if they are not clean and dry. Use appropriate holders.
MARBLE

The particular composition of these countertops requires greater attention when using them and special care to maintain them. The countertops are adequately treated with specific water repellents which, however, do not guarantee complete protection, but simply delays the absorption of liquids. Cleaning of the countertop should only ever be done with water. After each use, especially around the sink and stove, clean thoroughly with water or a mild detergent, then wipe with a soft cloth. Once a year, the countertop should be treated with an appropriate water repellent, which should be spread evenly with a brush.

AVOID:

  • Placing pots, pans, dishes, glasses and bottles directly on the countertop if they are not clean and dry. Use appropriate holders.
  • Contact with acid-corrosive substances (lemon juice, vinegar, wine, detergents in general). If this happens, rinse immediately with plenty of water, then dry with a clean cloth or sponge.

SINKS

STAINLESS STEEL

When cleaning, it is recommended to use a damp sponge with soap and water or a mild detergent. Always rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft or microfiber cloth. For water stains, use only specific products for stainless steel, following the instructions on the product label. For limestone or hot grease, use warm white vinegar or rubbing alcohol, then rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. During cleaning operations, always take care to follow the direction of the satin finish of the steel.

AVOID:

  • The use of cleaning materials that contain ammonia, chlorine or its compounds.
  • The use of steel wool , abrasive or corrosive materials.
FRAGRANITE

Sinks in fragranite are produced using a combination of acrylic resin with quartz/silica. For routine cleaning, use mild detergent and warm water. Then wipe the surface in a circular motion with a soft clean cloth. For stubborn stains, use a sponge soaked in alcohol. If there are traces of limestone, they can be removed with special cleansers that are commercially available. If the bottom of the sink is particularly dirty, it is advisable to pour hot water in to a height of 5/6 cm and add two tablespoons of dishwasher detergent. Allow the solution to soak from one to four hours depending on the amount of dirt. Then rinse well using a slightly abrasive sponge.

AVOID:

  • Strong alkaline substances such as ammonia, hydrochloric acid, caustic soda, products to unclog the drain of the sink, and trichloroethylene.
