Concrete Basin Installation, Care & Warranty Guides
Care and Cleaning Instructions
Do: Clean up spills immediately. Substances like wine, coffee, bleach, curry paste, coffee scrub , chemicals, makeup and toothpaste have been tested on the sealer with positive results, but Nood does not warrant staining caused by such substances.
Do: Clean surfaces using a sponge or soft micro fibre cloth with each use. Using soap with cool water is recommended. Avoid chemical cleaners.
Do: Avoid scratching the surface. It is important to wash your surfaces with a soft microfibre cloth and soapy water. Avoid rough fabrics or scourers and cleaning devices.
Do: Use protective placemats and trivets for soaps, cups, plates, bowls, hot dishes, glasses etc.
Sink Waxing and Maintenance
Do Not: Use generic chemical based cleaning products such as bleach, glass cleaners or degreasers.
Do Not: Use vinegar, ammonia, lemon or orange as cleaners. Avoid any corrosive / acidic agents such as acidic products, strong detergents, corrosive liquids or scouring powders.
Do Not: Use bathroom, tub and tile or grout cleaners, or scourers and rough cleaning pads, rags or sponges.
Do Not: Sit or stand on your concrete surfaces. Excessive force applied to the concrete products will weaken or even break the product. They are not designed for such use. Concrete is hard wearing but not flexible, and therefore excessive weight in any one area could result in cracking.
Do Not: Apply excessive heat directly to the concrete. Natural, man-made heat or sun may cause fading and alter the shine of the surface over time.
Do Not: Drag, brush or scratch at the surface. Once the sealer is damaged, moisture may seep beneath and create further damage. Nood Co’s warranty does not cover replacements in this circumstance.
Do Not: Leave hot oil on your concrete. It will leave deep stain marks that may be removed with bi-carb soda and water if applied within the first hour or so.
Do Not: Stack anything on the concrete , including stools/chairs or other tables. If you must, please cover surface with a cloth first. This will help avoid unnecessary scratching.
Do Not: Use coffee scrubs, or tints in the basin.
