How to Care for your Laminate Kitchen Worktop

The information presents the most effective ways of fitting and caring for your laminate kitchen worktop.


General cleaning of the surface requires only a damp cloth & a mild detergent or non abrasive cleaner diluted in warm water. Some strong chemicals, dyes and fruit juices may harm your laminate counter top.

In the event of spillage always wipe up, rinse & dry the area thoroughly. Do not leave liquids lying on the surface. They may seep through a joint and affect the core board.

Note: Prolonged contact with some PVC aprons may promote premature wear of the worktop surface. Abrasive scouring powders, creams and even polishes should all be avoided.

Wear Resistance

Laminate worktops provide a hard wearing surface. However, the surface will be damaged by scratching of sharp knives or other sharp utensils. It is recommended that a cutting board or protective mat be used when using such implements.

Lifetime Warranty

Topform laminate worktops have a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects. The manufacturer undertakes to make good by repair and/or replacement (at its own discretion) any worktop shown to have failed by any reason of defects in design, materials or workmanship.

This warranty is subject to fair wear and tear and providing that the installation, care and maintenance instructions have been followed and that the product has been properly used for its intended purpose.

This undertaking is in addition to the consumers’ statutory rights and does not affect those rights in any way. This warranty covers domestic installations only. No claims for replacement costs will be entertained if the worktop is not fully inspected before fitting.
