VITREOUS CHINA BASINS AND VANITY TOPS

  • Use warm soapy water or mild detergent and a soft or microfiber cloth. Rinse with clean water.

PLASTICS

  • Use a soft duster for removal of surface dust.
  • For wet surfaces use warm soapy water or a mild detergent and water and a soft or microfiber cloth.
  • Abrasive compounds must be avoided due to scratching.
  • Surface applied oils or waxes will create a build-up on the surface that will be detrimental to the surface.
  • Plastics are resistant to most household products but are not completely stain proof. Any chemical spill must be immediately removed, flushing with water until gone. If a stain remains try Brasso followed by a plastic polish. Refer to list X at end of this guide for chemicals to avoid.
  • Scratches: Keep sharp object clear from plastics. If scratched apply Brasso or a plastic polish.
  • Burns: Hot objects will cause discolouration and depending on the degree of damage it may be able to be restored using the same process as for scratches.

POLYMARBLE VANITY TOPS

  • Use warm soapy water and a clean microfiber cloth followed by drying off with absorbent cloth.
  • For minor scuffs on the surface use plastic polish.
  • Scratches: If this is minimal use as the process for minor scuffs but in the case of a deeper scratch start with 2000 grit wet and dry paper. Use this wet to take out most of the scratch following on with plastic polish to finish. Note: Deep scratches and chips are best left to a specialised repairer.

ACRYLIC SHOWER TRAYS AND LINERS

  • A regular weekly use of warm soapy water or mild detergent and a clean microfiber cloth followed by a rinse of clean water. Note: No bleaches, solvents, alcohol, citrus based chemicals, bath oils, bath salts, or abrasive cleaners should be used.
  • Minor scuffs or scratches on the surface can be removed using Plastic Polish. (Any deeper issue you would best contact a specialist repairer)

SHOWER UNITS – RETURNS, DOORS AND GLASS

  • At least once a week clean down the shower with warm soapy water and a clean microfiber cloth followed by a rinse of clean water and dry off. This is essential to remove any external residue that has the potential to damage the surface of metal and glass.
  • Use a plastic squeegee or soft absorbent cloth to wipe the glass clean after each shower. This is especially required for hard water supply.
  • If this shower is not purchased with a factory applied glass protection we recommend Enduroshield* glass protection to make the cleaning process more effective.
  • If you have hard water: Have a professional apply a glass surface treatment* as the build-up of mineral deposits will etch the surface whereas with a treated surface any build up can be more readily removed. A mix of white vinegar (1 part) and water (4 parts) will assist to remove mineral deposits.
  • Refer to the Enduroshield website www.enduroshield.com/aus for more specific details on glass care.

EASY CLEAN WASTES

  • 
Regularly remove the lid, Inner Cup and Strainer assembly, clean and reassemble.

GLASS TREATMENT INFORMATION

  • Glass has a porous surface and mineral deposits as lime and calcium, soap scum, chemical residues from toxic cleaners all contribute a build on the surface of glass and this potentially etches the surface. Treated surfaces seal the surface and any build can be much easier removed.

MIRRORS

  • Use a reputable glass cleaner or an anti-fog application to clean and polish the surface.

TOILETS

  • Cleaning: Use warm soapy water or a mild detergent and a microfiber cloth on a regular basis. Avoid any aggressive or abrasive cleaners.
  • Use a toilet brush and a reputable toilet cleaner weekly to clean the rim and down into the trap as far as practical.
  • Add no chemical dispensing units within the cistern.
  • Soft close seats must not be forced close as this will cause damage and void the warranty.
  • Keep a regular check for any sign of leakage. If a fault occurs, including leakages, it is the owners responsibility to isolate the fault and notify the appropriate parties immediately.

VANITY CABINETS

Laminated or lacquer panted surfaces are water resistant. However constant and excessive exposure to water will enter joins in the assembly and the subsequent damage will be irreparable. Items to comply with warranty:

  • Ensure the water pressure is regulated and balanced to the size of the basin to control water splash.
  • The water temperature must be at a maximum of 55 degrees Celsius.
  • The waste connections must have been correctly installed by a licensed plumber. If a fault occurs, including leakages, it is the owners responsibility to isolate the fault and notify the appropriate parties immediately.
  • Any joins in the cabinet that are susceptible for water ingress must be sealed with silicone including cabinet to wall.
  • The bathroom must have a suitable ventilation system to remove moisture vapour.
  • All cleaning of surfaces: Use a damp microfiber cloth with warm soapy water followed up by drying off with an absorbent cloth.
  • Do not use abrasive or aggressive cleaners.
