Cleaning and Maintenance
Laminates (TFL and HPL)
For general day-to-day cleaning, warm soapy water or non-abrasive household cleaners such as glass cleaner, Fantastik®, Formula 409®, or commercially available solid surface cleaners will remove most residues. Then rinse and towel dry the surface to prevent spotting especially in areas with hard water.
Prolonged exposure, chemical dilutions and frequency of cleaners, disinfectants, and/or sanitizers used on the surface can cause degradation and/or discoloration.
Aluminum and Painted Components
For best results, wash with warm water and soap, or use any mild household cleaners such as Windex, Formula 409, or Mr. Clean glass and surface cleaners as these products have been tested by many MOF manufacturers. Any recommendations clients make to their end users should be verified using products that have been produced off their line; our own recommendations are based on products that have been powder cured and tested in a laboratory. Variations in production and end use settings could lead to different variations when it comes to coating cure and cleaner application for our products
Use a soft cloth, and clean with mild soap and water.
Many fabrics can be cleaned with soap and water if “W” is listed as a cleaning code. Bleach can be an effective disinfectant when used properly; however, please contact us before using.
Important: Follow the correct “bleach to water” ratio listed in the specs. ALWAYS wipe or rinse with clean water after using a bleach/water solution. Follow the safety precautions and handling directions on the bleach product. Do not use bleach if it is not indicated as safe for use on your chosen fabric.
Softscape and Felt-Like Materials
1. Blot excess spills from material as quickly as possible. Wipe with a damp cloth.
2. If the stain persists, a cloth dampened with a mild soapy water mixture can be used to rub the stain.
3. If the stain still persists, apply a polyester carpet shampoo cleaner mixed with water to a damp cloth to clean the affected area (or as per manufacturer’s instructions). Blot well after each application.
Always try these methods in an inconspicuous place on the product prior to using on a visible area.
Wash surfaces regularly with mild soap and water. Dry with a clean cloth or soft paper towel to prevent soap streaks.
Clean with a damp cloth. Wipe with soap and water, or with a glass cleaner. Do not expose the solid surface of your worksurface to harsh chemicals.
Wipe glass elements with a mild soap, or detergent and lukewarm water. Use a clean soft cloth, applying only light pressure. Rinse with clean water, and dry by blotting with a damp cloth or
chamois. Do not use window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds, or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, or lacquer thinner on glass elements.
If there is a need for infection control, bleach can be used in accordance with CDC Cleaning and Disinfection instructions. The solution ratio should be tablespoons of bleach to 1 gallon of water, or 4 teaspoons of bleach per quart of water. Spray to apply the solution as a mist, and then wipe off the surface moisture to help spread the bleach solution.
