ROUTINE MAINTENANCE / RENOVATION

- In order to preserve the product and its sealer (varnish, wax etc...) we advise to place the felt pads under the legs of the furniture,chairs etc., even if they are made from plastic.
- Do not leave any coloured water spots or grease stains for a long time. Wipe them out as soon as possible.
- Cover flower pots to protect them.
- To clean the surface use common non-aggressive cleaning products or cleaning shampoo.
- It is forbidden to use any ammonia-based or any concentrated anti-scaling agents.
- It is important to maintain the surface applying regularly a layer of the last sealer. To insure a good grip of the sealer it is necessary to clean and polish the surface (with a single-disk polisher).
- The frequency of this operation depends on the use of the surface (make a test with a water drop: if it is absorbed, a new layer of the sealer must be applied).
