CARE & MAINTENANCE OF YOUR NEW SURFACE
Initial Care after Refinishing: Clean the finish on a regular basis with soap and a sponge (this will provide your surface with conditioning). PLEASE NOTE: All newly refinished surfaces will have some surface dust, which will have settled into the new surface. Do not be alarmed; the surface is still within it's long-term cure period. Normal use and regular cleaning will remove all minor surface dust.
Initial Care after Refinishing: DO NOT use or apply tape, lay bottles, soap, or other objects on the finished surface.
Initial Care after Refinishing: Be sure that your faucets are dry and not dripping after each use. Be sure to towel dry your refinished surface after each use. (this is a good idea for all of you surfaces, new or refinished as it helps prevent water spots and maintains the original shine).
DO NOT use any abrasive cleaning products on or near your refinished surface. Your glossy new finish is easily cleaned with any mild liquid cleaner (i.e. dish soap), and should be cleaned after each use. Generally, any cleaner approved for use on acrylic surfaces is acceptable.
DO NOT use any abrasive scrubbing pads, such as Scotchbrite(tm) or SOS(tm), as this will scratch your new surface and reduce the shine.
DO NOT drop sharp or heavy objects on the finish, as this will cause chips/cracks. Contact Affordable Refinishing for repairs immediately should this occur. Failure to contact us i a timely manner can result in further damage and will void the warranty.
DO NOT use a rubber mat! Most mats will produce a reaction with the new surface when subjected to hot water. Affordable Refinishing carries a full line of safety mats, which will provide years of trouble free use. These mats are guaranteed, ask us for details.
Faucets must be properly maintained by the owner/user to protect the new surface. Leaky faucets can erode the new finish, causing it to crack and wear out prematurely and void the warranty.
Improper use of acid bearing compounds, such as drain openers or tile grout cleaners, can cause destruction of the surface. These chemicals include (but are not limited to): cosmetics, hair dyes, and perfumes; which may stain or otherwise damage the new surface. Introduction of any of these chemicals onto the surface would be considered neglect and void the warranty.
REMEMBER, if you treat your new surface with respect, clean it regularly, and follow the above guidelines you fixture will stay glossy and give you years of beautiful, trouble free service.
