Synthetic finishes

These include finishes like melamine and vinyl.

DO

  • Dust the surfaces once a week with a damp cloth.
  • Remove stubborn stains using warm, soapy water and a clean cloth. Make sure the surface is completely dry afterwards.
  • Remove any liquid spills quickly to avoid damaging the composite material underneath.
  • Minor scratches can be repaired with touch-up pens.
  • If vinyl gets cut or torn, you can smooth the surface and re-attach it with PVA glue.
  • On vinyl surfaces, use coasters or heat mats underneath hot food or drink containers. Vinyl can be damaged by heat.

DON’T

  • Don’t use timber polishes or waxes.
  • Avoid abrasive cleaners and cloths.
  • Melamine can chip at the edges so don’t put it in high traffic areas where it can be knocked.
