Care and Maintenance
General day-to-day stains
HI-MACS® is a completely homogenous material. As it does not have any pores, you can simply and easily clean it with a damp cloth or sponge and a mild detergent.
You can also use a domestic scouring agent on all matt finishes. It is also useful to wipe your surface occasionally with a scouring agent or wet sponge to retain the even finish of your product.
Tougher stains, caused by food colouring, tea or fruit juice can easily be removed using a bleaching agent (do not leave in contact with the work surface for more than five minutes). Clean the surface with a domestic all-purpose cleaner and rinse with clean water. You can also use a scouring agent on matt finishes. Nail varnish can easily be removed with nail varnish remover (acetone-free) or a scouring agent.
Acidic cleaning agents
A number of cleaning agents contain acids, such as methyl chloride or acetone. Avoid using these on a HI-MACS® surface. Should one of these products accidentally come into contact with the material, as a precautionary measure, rinse the surface with soapy water to prevent any discolouring taking place.
Hot saucepans or pots straight out of the oven or from the hob should not be laid directly on the HI-MACS® surface. Place a mat or board underneath to prevent any damage to your product. If you pour boiling liquids into HI-MACS® sinks or basins, you should also pour in cold water at the same time.
Small burn marks or marks caused by nicotine can simply be removed using a scouring agent or an abrasive sponge. Should this give the high-gloss finish a matt appearance, rubbing the surface with a scouring pad will quickly return it to its high-gloss state.
HI-MACS® copes effortlessly with the wear and tear of everyday life, however, pointed or sharp-edged objects can leave cuts or scratches on the HI-MACS® surface. You can repair smaller cuts and scratches without too much trouble but we recommend the services of a professional for especially deep cuts.
