General Cleaning
& Maintenance

 

 

Foundation & Source
Laminates (HPL & LPL)


General day to day cleaning, warm soapy water or non-abrasive household cleaners such as glass cleaner, Fantastik®, Formula 409® or commercially available solid surface cleaners will remove most residues. Then rinse and towel dry the surface to prevent spotting especially in areas with hard water.

Prolonged exposure, chemical dilutions and frequency of cleaners, disinfectants, and/or sanitizers used on the surface can cause degradation and/or discoloration.

Paint (Accent,
Mica & Foundation)


Wash with warm water and soap often works or any mild household cleaners such as Windex, Formula 409, or Mr. Clean glass and surface cleaners as these are the cleaners tested by many MOF manufacturers. That being said, any recommendations the customer makes to their end users should be verified on product off their line because our recommendations are made based on powder cured and tested in a laboratory. Variations in production and end use settings could have some variation to coating cure and cleaner application.

Wood (Flintwood,
Natural Veneers)


All wood finishes are susceptible to scratches from rough and abrasive objects.

Teknion Wood’s finish is best cleaned by wiping the surfaces with a damp cloth, followed by a soft dry cloth in the direction of the grain. If the surfaces are really dirty, add a mild soap solution to the water, clean the surface and then wipe down again using a damp cloth to remove any soap residue, followed by a dry cloth to absorb any moisture left on the surface.

 

Seamless


Wash surface regularly with mild soap and water. Dry with a clean cloth or soft paper towel to prevent soap streaks

Solid Surface


Clean with a damp cloth. Wipe with soap and water or with a glass cleaner. Do not expose your solid surface worksurface to harsh chemicals.

Seating Plastics


Wash surface with mild soap and water. Dry with a clean cloth or soft paper towel to prevent soap streaks.

 

 

Seating Mesh


Wipe with a well wrung soft cloth moistened with light neutral detergent and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Be sure to wipe detergent completely and wipe again with a dry cloth to dry it. When using alkaline electrolyzed water to remove stains, spray directly on the stain and brush with a soft brush taking care not to damage the cloth. Then, wipe the moisture and stain to remove and wait for the cloth to dry. Do not use bleach.

Glass Elements


Wipe glass elements with a mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water. Use a clean soft cloth, applying only light pressure. Rinse with clean water and dry by blotting with a damp cloth or chamois. Do Not Use window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, benzene, carbon tetrachloride or lacquer thinner on glass elements.

Back painted Glass


Gently clean, do not scrub, with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth and soap and water solution. Do not use paper towels; their fibers can adhere to the finished surface. Do not use window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, benzene, carbon tetrachloride or lacquer thinner on back-painted glass.

 

 

Altos/Optos Glass


Use a wash solution that includes a mild soap and detergent, or a slightly acidic cleaning solution (vinegar and water). A product like Windex can also be used. Do not use harsh cleaners, abrasives or alkaline materials. Use clean, grit-free cloths, together with the wash solution, to clean the glass. Care must be taken to ensure that gritty dirt particles picked up by the cloth do not scratch the glass. Do not use metal scrapers or tools to remove stubborn materials or stains. Immediately follow the washing with liberal amounts of clean rise water (for best results use distilled water). Promptly remove excess rinse water with a clean, good quality squeegee. Debris must be removed from the squeegee to prevent possible glass damage

Etched Glass


Gently clean - do not scrub - with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth and 4: 1 mixture of water and vinegar. DO NOT USE AMMONIA-BASED CLEANERS! Do not use paper towels; their fibers adhere to the etched surface and they will affect the protective quality of the Etch Sealer. Harsh scrubbing and/or abrasive cleaners may damage the protective sealer.

Textiles


Many fabrics can be cleaned with soap and water if “W” is listed as a cleaning code. See links below for instructions given by Health Canada and the CDC.

Bleach can be an effective disinfectant when used properly. Luum has many fabrics that are bleach cleanable. Important: Follow the correct “bleach to water” ratio listed in the specs. ALWAYS wipe or rinse with clean water after using a bleach/water solution. Follow the safety precautions and handling directions on the bleach product. Do not use bleach if it is not indicated as safe for use on your chosen fabric.

Leather


White vinegar followed by a suitable Leather Conditioner. Clean gently using a circular motion Avoid saturating the leather with liquid Never rub vigorously in one location If required treat with leather conditioner to avoid drying out Dry and polish the leather with a dry cloth Always test in an inconspicuous area first.

Smooth Felt


For Stains:

1. Blot excess spills from material quickly as possible. Wipe with a damp cloth.
2. If stain persists a mild soapy water mixture and damp cloth can be used to rub the stain.
3. If stain still persists, use a polyester carpet shampoo cleaner mixed with water, a damp cloth and apply to the affected area (or as per manufacturer’s instructions). Blot well after each application.

Infection Control:

If there is a need for infection control, bleach can be used in accordance with CDC Cleaning and Disinfection instructions. The solution ratio should be 5 tablespoons of bleach to 1 Gallon of water or 4 teaspoons of bleach per quart of water. Spray to apply the solution as a mist and then wipe off the surface moisture to help spread the bleach solution.

Always try these methods in an inconspicuous place on the product prior to trying on a visible area.

Acrylic


Use a soft cloth and clean with mild soap and water.

 

 

Healthy Workspaces
& LUUM Textiles

 

Many of you have questions around creating and maintaining a safe workplace as we come through the global challenges of dealing the COVID-19 pandemic. Our intent with this communication is to share what we know and help answer your textile related questions.

Question

Do antimicrobial finishes kill the COVID-19 virus?

Answer

No, antimicrobial finishes DO NOT kill COVID-19.

Antimicrobial treatments for textiles are designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungus and do not kill them. COVID-19 is not a bacteria or fungus – it is a VIRUS. A virus replicates by infecting a host cell. Viruses can infect many types of cells that are not inhibited by antimicrobials. Antimicrobials then will not be effective overall in inhibiting the growth of COVID-19, and will not kill COVID-19.

In addition, antimicrobial products used on textiles are regulated by the EPA as pesticides. Luum promotes a healthy work environment, and as such, we do not promote the use of added antimicrobial finishes.

 

 

Can the COVID-19 virus survive on a surface?


Yes, a virus can survive on a surface but cannot replicate without a living host. Scientists disagree on how long the COVID-19 virus can survive on a surface – early evidence suggests it can vary from hours to days. Clean “high touch” surfaces like doorknobs, electronics and shared tables first.

Regular Preventative Cleaning, like regular hand washing, can be very effective. Many fabrics can be cleaned with soap and water if “W” and “WS” is listed as a cleaning code. See links below for instructions given by Health Canada and the Center for Disease Control.

What are my options for disinfecting fabrics?


Bleach can be an effective disinfectant when used properly. Luum has many fabrics that are bleach cleanable. See our “Performance” filter on luumtextiles.com and click the “Bleach Cleanable” search option. Important: Follow the correct “bleach to water” ratio listed in the specs. ALWAYS wipe or rinse with clean water after using a bleach/water solution. Follow the safety precautions and handling directions on the bleach product. Do not use bleach if it is not indicated as safe for use on your chosen fabric.

Does Luum have any fabrics that can be disinfected with Virex wipes?


Yes. Meta Texture, Monotex, Perilune, Synaptic, Top Coat and Ultra Durable are coated fabrics. Disrupt, Iterate, Schema and Vital are wovens. Please see the “Care and Maintenance” section in the “Resource” tab on our Luum website for information on tested cleaners for High Performance Polyurethane and Silicone. Always rinse with clean water after using any disinfectant to prevent damage.
