Care & Maintenance

006-2476-LUMOTouchtex Doors
Touchtex Doors are made from Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF), but as with any MDF product, are not waterproof. Care should be taken to ensure they are not exposed to high levels of heat, moisture, steam and humidity.
For cleaning, we recommend wiping Touchtex Doors with a soft damp cloth with warm soapy water or mild chemical spray and then drying with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not use commercial cleaning products, abrasive papers, acids, solvents, thinners, methylated spirits, bleach or any other strong cleaners to clean Touchtex doors. Use of these cleaners will void your 10 year warranty.
Installation:
Some Touchtex doors and panels are manufactured with a protective film on the surface to prevent scratching. This film should not be removed until installation is complete.
 
Puregloss Doors
Puregloss Doors are made from High Moisture-Resistant E-Zero MDF substrate, but as with any MDF product, are not waterproof. Care should be taken to ensure they are not exposed to high levels of heat, moisture, steam and humidity and that any accidental spills are wiped up immediately.
For cleaning we recommend wiping with a soft, damp cloth with warm soapy water and then drying with a soft dry cloth. For more difficult marks, a mild streak-free glass cleaner may be used.
Do not use commercial cleaning products, abrasive papers, solvents, thinners or any other strong cleaners to clean Puregloss doors. Use of these cleaners will void your 10 year warranty.

Durostyle Doors
Durostyle doors are made from a moisture resistant MDF, but as with any MDF product, are not waterproof. Care should be taken to ensure they are not exposed to high levels of heat, moisture, steam and humidity and that any accidental spills are wiped up immediately.
For cleaning, we recommend wiping Durostyle doors with a soft damp cloth and warm water, and then drying with a soft dry cloth. A small amount of soap or mild chemical spray may be used for stains that cannot be removed with water. Please refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations before using chemical spray.
 
Do not:
  • Use commercial cleaning products, abrasive materials, solvents, thinners or any other strong cleaners to clean Durostyle doors.
  • Expose your Durostyle doors and panels to high levels of heat, moisture, steam or humidity.
  • Use your kettle, toaster or other heat emitting appliances directly below Durostyle overhead doors.
  • Use your kettle, toaster or other heat emitting appliances behind or next to Durostyle doors or panels.
Doing any of these will void your 10 year warranty.

Stylelite Acrylic Doors
Stylelite doors are made from 18mm acrylic-faced E0 MR MDF board, but as with any MDF product, are not waterproof. Care should be taken to ensure they are not exposed to high levels of heat, moisture, steam and humidity and that any accidental spills are wiped up immediately.
The Stylelite surface becomes more scratch resistant over the first few days after the removal of the protective film. This process can be accelerated by lightly polishing the Stylelite surface immediately after the film is removed using Novus No. 1 or Plexus plastic polishes with a clean microfibre cloth.
Please Note: The repair advice below applies only to Stylelite High Gloss products.
General Cleaning: Apply Novus No. 1 Plastic Polish, Plexus Plastic Polish or warm soapy water and wipe using a clean microfibre, soft cloth or damp chamois.
Removing Marks and Light Scratches: Apply Novus No. 2 or a good quality liquid polish and using a damp, clean microfibre or soft cloth, polish in a circular pattern. Then remove polish using the general cleaning procedure above.
Removing Heavier Scratches: Apply Novus No. 3 or a good quality fine compound polish and using a damp, clean microfibre or soft cloth, polish in back and forth motion at right angles to visible scratches. Then use Removing Marks and Light Scratches procedure, then General Cleaning procedure above.

Ensure all polish residues are removed completely from the Stylelite surface. Low speed electric buffing can also be used to repair marks and scratches.
 
Do not:
  • Use a paper towel to clean.
  • Dry wipe doors and panels at any time.
  • Use brushes, scourers or scrapers on doors and panels.
  • Use abrasive cleaners, thinners or methylated spirits.
Doing any of these will void your 10 year warranty.
