Synthetic and Lacquered doors
A soft cloth and warm water containing a little washing-up liquid will normally suffice to clean the various fronts. Solvent-based cleaners, abrasive cleaning agents, micro-fibre cloths and steam cleaners must not be used in order to prevent damage. Particularly stubborn stains on synthetic fronts, such as paint or adhesive residues, can be removed with a standard commercially available cleaner for plastics. It is advisable to test the cleaner in a hidden corner first. Fronts with "matt“or “velvet touch surface“ are finished with a special lacquer. The following points must therefore be noted when cleaning such fronts: stains and splashes of grease, etc. must be removed immediately with plenty of water, possibly using a standard commercially available, non-abrasive household detergent, particularly if the stains have been caused by strongly coloured substances or liquids. The stains must not be allowed to dry.
Residues can be brushed off with a hot solution of soft soap and a washing-up brush or nailbrush. Soapy residues must then be wiped off with lukewarm water and dried with a chamois. It may be impossible to completely remove stains due to substances which have dried up or which have remained on the surface for any length of time. Fronts with high-gloss acrylic coating must be specially sealed in accordance with the separate instructions. Fronts with lacquer must be treated with a special care agent for gentle, deep care to refresh them. These fronts require the same treatment as synthetic fronts in all other respects. On high-gloss lacquered fronts, slight surface variation, minor spots and sink marks cannot always be avoided as a result of the manufacturing process involved. These occurrences fall within the delivery standard and cannot be acknowledged as reason for complaint.
