Using a soft cloth, wash the surface with mild diswashing liquid and warm water
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they will scratch the surface damaging both its beauty and its stain resistance.
DO NOT use cleaners containing acid, alkali, or sodium hypochlorite. Examples of cleaners to avoid are oven, metal, drain and ceramic cook-top cleaners, chlorine bleach, rust and lime scale removers.
Protecting the Surface
Knives or other sharp utensils may cut or scratch the laminate surface, be sure to always use a cutting board when working with such items.
Heavy blows from a hammer or meat tenderizer may crack or gouge the surface. A chopping block is recommended for those applications.
Hot pans or activated electrical appliances should not be placed on laminated surfaces, always use protective insulating pads.
Ensure that the range surface is above the deck of the countertop; this will protect your counter against heat deflection.
Seam & Joint Care
DO NOT allow water to stand on any joint. Water or steam may cause swelling of the joints. Water may seep into the joint which will result in swelling or de-lamination and is not covered under warranty.
DO NOT leave any heat source (coffee pot, toaster, slow cooker, electrical skillet, etc.), wet cloth, or frozen food left to thaw directly on seam.
Warranty is Void When:
Joint is damaged or swollen due to water or heat
A cutout has been made through a mitre or a butt joint.
Abrassive or chemical cleaners have been used or have come in contact with the countertop.
Proper installation procedures have not been followed.
