High pressure laminate is particularly hygienic and easy to clean.
It does not require any specific maintenance other than normal cleaning.
Its compact, non porous surface can be easily cleaned and disinfected with hot water, steam and all kind of common non abrasive household detergent and disinfectant, if not highly alkaline.
HPL highly resistant, so only few precautions are necessary:
• avoid using strong acids and bases
• avoid rubbing with highly abrasive substances or devices (i.e. sandpaper or steel wool)
It is antistatic, therefore it does not attract dust.
It does not require any treatment with furniture cleaners containing waxes: these kind of product tend to form on its surface a sticky layer which attracts dirt.
