Kitchen is the most important part of any home. In this section you will find some useful tips for proper maintenance of your kitchen and the pitfalls you should avoid. Our consultants work in harmony with you to keep your kitchen healthy. With the following tips for daily maintenance, your kitchen stays as good as new.

Some precautions:
Stains:
Do not let stains from coffee, mustard, tea or red wine dry up, but rinse them immediately.
Try to do with knives or metal objects but don’t scratch your furniture.
Lacquer and gloss kitchens are very sensitive to sand and dust.
Never use steam or high pressure.

Heat:
Never place hot dishes from the oven directly on your kitchen platform.
Never use a toaster, coffee machine or kettle under a wall cabinet.
Open the door of your oven or dishwasher to air, but wait 20 minutes after the wash cycle before use. Always empty your dishwasher.

The Furniture:
Do not sit or climb on your kitchen platform; do not lean against the wall cupboards, because you run the risk of slipping or falling.
Do not remove the hinges of the doors and if you need to replace or clean an electrical appliance, then turn off the electric supply to the device.

Children:
Kitchen is not a playroom; never leave small children alone in the kitchen. Let them not scan the cupboards for sweets; they can climb in and become trapped there or get hurt.

Maintenance of the plumbing:

Cranes:
Dry your faucets as much as possible after use and avoid aggressive, corrosive or abrasive or vinegar-based cleaners. They affect the surfaces and make them dull.

Colored fittings:
Clean with a soft cloth and clear water or a mild flushing agent. Anti Lime products or abrasives with alcohol, based on a chemical acid or vinegar, are not recommended for colored fittings.

The kitchen faucets are equipped with a sieve. Impurities in the water clog the screen over time and therefore the water pressure mitigates gradually. Get your faucet regularly checked clean them as mentioned in the manual.

Ceramic:
Do not use scouring pads or wipes. Clean the ceramic only with a product based on vinegar or a mild detergent, but in no way aggressive and abrasive mixture such as a barn, scouring powder, drain cleaners or products for faucets, ceramic plates and sheets.
Light stains should be removed with a damp cloth with a hint of detergent. For stubborn stains, use a cleaning product based on biodegradable vinegar. Penetrated stains and metal deposits can be removed using the cleaning of ceramic plates.
Cleaning agents based on fluorine or quartz sand, are to be avoided. Furthermore, it is also recommended not to work with hard objects with sharp edges and ceramic knives on the surface as this may cause scratches.

Granite:
Granite is easy to maintain and durable material. The shiny stone covering is nice too. The material is light resistant and highly resistant to scratches and stains. A damp sponge or cloth is sufficient. However, never use bleach.
