Care and maintenance
The products united under the Alveus brand are first-rate products in terms of quality, manufacture, materials and design. Since the sinks are made of various materials with specific characteristics, care and maintenance must be adjusted accordingly. Every sink is supplied with care and maintenance instructions. Following the recommendations stated, you will ensure a long service life to your Alveus kitchen products.
Stainless steel sinks
Soft cloths and liquid household cleaners should be used for cleaning. We recommend Alveus cleaning and care agents. Avoid silver cleaner, steel wool pads, bleach, or abrasive detergents. Do not deposit unprotected metal objects onto the stainless steel parts.
Should stainless steel come into contact with strong acids or leach, flush it immediately with a large amount of water. To avoid staining, do not leave food or corrosive substances (e.g. fruit juice, kitchen salt, vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise, etc.) on stainless steel surfaces for a longer period of time. We recommend that stainless steel products be wiped with a dry soft cloth after use to prevent scale formation.
Stains (fruit juices, coffee, tea, ...) wipe immediately with a liquid detergent and a soft cloth and rinse with clean water.
Other stains (watercolors, ink ...) wipe immediately with a cloth soaked in diluted alcohol and rinse with clean water.
For daily removing lime, you can use the vinegar which you leave on the surface for several minutes and rinse with clean water and then wipe the surface with a clean cloth. Use Alveus ALLSHINE for stubborn limescale.
Cleaning with rough abrasives and coarse sponges is prohibited since it is possible to matt or rub the smooth surface of the kitchen sink.
All claims arising from non-compliance with these instructions are ineligible.
|Do not expose the kitchen sink to strong chemicals such as:
Do not place on the drainer or bottom of the kitchen sink hot cookware that you took directly from the oven or from the hob (hot pans, cookware, dishes).
When filling the boiling water into the kitchen sink, liquid cold water should also be running.
Do not cut directly onto the dishwasher surface.
