Caring for your Thermoform doors
Dezignatek Thermoform doors are designed to be generally low maintenance; however we do have some pointers for looking after them:
While Thermoform doors and panels are water-resistant, they aren’t waterproof. Care should be taken to ensure that they don’t have excessive exposure to water, steam or extreme humidity.
Care should also be taken to protect doors from high temperatures - such as hot implements or heat leaks from faulty appliances.
Generally you should clean doors with a warm damp cloth which has had the excess water removed. Any moisture remaining after cleaning should be removed with a dry cloth.
Never use the following on your doors: abrasive cleaners, Janola or similar, scourer pads, wire wool, sand paper, or solvents and thinners.
Caring for Melamine
The Bestwood and Prime Melamine surfaces we use are low maintenance and easy to clean. Simply wipe down with a clean, damp cloth. With stubborn grease and grime, use vinegar diluted with water or Selleys Sugar Soap. Note that darker melamine colours will show fingermarks more easily.
Important: Always wipe with a damp cloth, then a dry cloth after cleaning to remove moisture. Never use abrasive cleaners or cleaning tools on Prime Melamine such as Jif, Vim, Brasso, steel wool or abrasive sponges. We also recommend caution in using bleach and alcohol-based cleaners. Dilute bleach:- one part bleach to three parts water.
Caring for your Prime Acrylic surface
Prime Acrylic is hard wearing and easy to clean and has a very good level of scratch resistance. For best cleaning results, use a micro-fibre cloth or wet chamois with a solvent-free, non-abrasive cleaner or detergent.
• Do not use brushes, scourers or scrapers.
• Avoid paper towels and do not dry-wipe the Prime Acrylic
Important: Always wipe with a damp cloth, then a dry cloth after cleaning to remove moisture. Never use abrasive cleaners or cleaning tools
on Prime Acrylic such as Jif, Vim, Brasso, steel wool or abrasive cleaners.
Caring for Laminates (HPL)
Prime Laminate is low maintenance and easy to clean. For regular cleaning of the Soft-Matt laminates, simply wipe with a clean damp cloth using soapy water or a little detergent. Light scratches and scuffs can be removed using a magic sponge such as a 3M Magic Sponge or Glitz Wipe-out Sponge.
Other laminates can be cleaned as per above but don't require the use of a magic sponge. For any gloss laminates, clean as per standard laminates and then use a little glass cleaner for a streak-free finish.
