Excess water, especially around the corner joints and front edge of the work surfaces should be removed immediately as constant water ingress can cause irreversible damage which is not covered by the warranty.

Avoid boiling kettles over or near work surface joints or under wall cupboards.

Please do not place hot pans directly onto the work surfaces as they are not heat-resistant and can cause staining or damage.
