This is a list of general maintenance tips for the appliances and surfaces in your new apartment.
To care for your laminate floor –
Damp mop with very little WATER only. Do not use too much water as this will make the finish come up, or get under the edge. Do not use striper type cleaner or scratchy scrubber. Do not WAX the floor. Any product on the market made for laminate floor is fine to use. Because of the finish on the floor, items will not stick to them and plain water will work to clean the floor. You will also have fewer streaks if you use plain water. If you feel you need more than just water to clean it then only use special laminate floor cleaner. Regular soap will get under the edge and cause it to lift.
To care for your solid surface counter tops –
Your tops are made from a plastic type material and will scratch. Do not use them as a cutting surface. If you get a stain on them try soft scrub with bleach, or just plain ole bleach.
HRV System –
If you unfamiliar with how this system works here is a brief run down. If you would like further information on its use I can set up an appointment with our HRV installer and he can give you the full run down. Basically this is used to clean moisture out of the air. The units are built air tight and this will cause moisture problems if not ventilated properly. To use the unit press the 20/40/60 button located in each bathroom and the kitchen. This is a timer and the unit will run for the length of time specified. The unit does not need to run all the time. In addition to taking moisture out of the air the unit cleans the air by sucking the old air out and bringing fresh air in. If you notice any moisture in your windows this is a good indication to run the unit for a while to clear the moisture out of the air. It is a good idea to run the unit when showering also.
