General cleaning of the surface requires only a damp cloth & a mild detergent or non abrasive cleaner diluted in warm water. Some strong chemicals, dyes and fruit juices may harm your work surface.
Things to do:
To prevent damage from hot objects, use heat resistant mats on the surface of the worktop. Always use ashtrays for cigarettes. Always use a chopping board for preparing food. Wipe spilt liquids away from joints and cut-outs immediately. Ensure that all inset appliances are properly sealed with a suitable waterproof silicone sealant.
Things to avoid:
Never place objects from the oven or hob directly onto the laminate surface since this may lead to blistering. Care should also be taken with hot irons and cigarettes. Some crockery items, kitchen utensils and other objects sliding across your worktops will produce fine scratches in the laminate. Try to avoid sliding rough based objects across the surface. Never cut foodstuffs directly on the laminate surface. Moisture will not harm the laminate surface itself but it is advisable to wipe away any spillages as soon as possible. The critical areas are around joints and cut-outs.
