Dust seems futile and casually harmless, right? Not right. Laminate sheets for furniture and other layered surfaces should be regularly dusted with a rough cloth or a duster. You can also choose a microfiber cloth for better output. Corners of decorative laminates which are difficult to reach can be cleaned using nylon dusters with smaller bristles or using a toothbrush. To protect your surfaces from dust, Dolby Mica has anti – bacterial laminates. Nothing feels 100% clean and safe unless cleaned with at least a little water. Laminated furniture can be wiped once a week using a damp cloth. But too much water can spoil the decorative laminate sheets due to moisture.
BBetween kids, pets and kitchen spills, who remembers cleaning, right? Then try to cover it up! Use coasters and transparent table covers wherever possible. This can prevent direct contact of liquids with the laminates. You can also purchase surface and countertop coatings for the same. Additionally, you can install high gloss laminate sheets as they are easy to clean. Never place pots and pans removed from the stove or oven directly onto kitchen laminate sheets. Fire reluctant laminates are a good way to prevent damage on your kitchen surfaces.
Got a nice bottle of high bleach cleanser? Unfortunately, that won’t do your surfaces any good. Many commercial products contain substances that may damage or discolour the laminate sheets. Mild household glass and surface cleaners in smaller portions are advisable. The following should never come in direct contact with your surfaces; if they do, wipe off immediately and rinse the surface thoroughly:
- Coffee pot cleaners
- Drain cleaners
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Oven cleaners
- Rust removers
- Toilet bowl cleaners
- Any other product containing high portions of chemicals
Sunlight tans our skin, but it fades your laminates. Sunlight tends to cause fading and crumpling of designs. That is why, as an added, Dolby Mica provides laminates with high colour fastness to protect your surfaces.
Scrubbers made of bad plastic or metal can lead to scratches on your laminate surfaces. Scratches destroy your designs.
Polishing your decorative laminates can lead to residue and major permanent damage on the designs. It can also lead to permanently trapping the grease on your decorative laminate surface. Remember, laminates are not made by real wood. You can always get your hands on Dolby Mica’s High Gloss laminate sheets for a polished finish.
Although decorative laminates are heat resistant to an extent, prolonged exposure to temperatures over 135oC (275o F) may cause blistering or other damages to your wooden laminate sheets. These pads and/or trivets absorb the heat, therefore saving your laminates from getting damaged. That is why, Dolby Mica has fire reluctant laminates.
Coffee and tea spills are common at home or work spaces. In moments of urgent deadlines or tea time with friends, these spills are inevitable. Prefer using coasters for the same.
In case of spills on kitchen laminate sheets, clean the surface immediately with a damp cloth.
Heat producing kitchens appliances like coffee makers and toaster ovens should not be placed beneath laminated cabinets. Excess heat and moisture from these appliances can damage laminate sheets on cabinets. If you wish to opt for fire reluctant laminates, flip through Dolby Mica’s laminate collection.
In case of major damages, there is no option but to replace that sheet of laminate with a new one. After all, they can only take so much of our everyday life spills, damages and stains!
