1. Maintenance of composite materials with gel coat
Basin
Floor
Ceiling
Niches
The bathroom you have just purchased has been designed with materials selected to
bear intensive wear. Nonetheless, to preserve their original appearance for a long time we
recommend you to follow this advice:
- In order to prevent fouling up both basin and shower base have to be maintained on
a daily basis after use. It is enough to clean with soapy water.
- If the scale resists, use white vinegar once a week. Let the vinegar do its work for 20
minutes and rinse with clean water.
- For disinfecting the composite materials, bleach diluted 2/3 with water will allow
treatment without damage.
-
-
In case of cigarette burns or scratches:
Lightly abrade the damaged zone with waterproof glasspaper grit 1200 (which
can be supplied with a repair kit from ALTOR Industrie). Do not abrade down to

In case of large splinters, contact ALTOR Industrie on 02 40 36 16 67, send a fax

The towel dryers are maintained with a cloth wetted with glass cleaning product.
Never use acetone on these surfaces to avoid rapid discolorations as well as to avoid
burning PVC sheets.
3. Maintenance of the plastic, melamine, or lacquered items*
PVC accessory, seats
Hinges
Spotlights
Nurse’s bell
Electric and razor points
Door
Toilet seat
Tablet(s)
Clean the PVC accessories, light diffusers, melamine tablets*, and doors with glass

disinfecting, bleach diluted 2/3 with water will provide treatment without damage.
The shower screen PVC pivots* and door hinges must be lightly lubricated twice a
year to work properly.
Never use solvent-based or chlorine-based products (such as hydrochloric acid) or
concentrated acids.
4. Maintenance of hygiene seals
Clean the deal with a fabric wetted with white vinegar or methylated spirits
and rinse.
Depending on wear, no more than every 2 years change this hygiene seal so
as to ensure your sanitary unit stays watertight.

5. Maintenance of the PVC mats*
First remove the dust and then wipe with a wet cloth (using a traditional
cleaning product if necessary).
In case of stubborn stains use a little very diluted bleach, white spirit,
or domestic alcohol.
Avoid wax or vitrifying varnish. Do not use acetone or chlorine solvents (type
trichlorethylene) either which dissolve the PVC material.
6. Maintenance of glazed surfaces
Mirror by itself
Toilet cabinet mirror
Shower screen glass
The mirrors and shower screen partition* are maintained with common products for
glass available in the shops, to be used with a soft cloth or a wipe.
The mirrors must not be cleaned with acetone.
7. Maintenance of the shower curtain*
Rub the stained surfaces with a soft brush soaked in white vinegar,
clean with soapy water, and rinse. The shower curtain can also be washed
in the washing-machine at 30°C. Leave it to dry thoroughly for best results.

8. Maintenance of the tap fittings
Washbasin mixer
Shower mixer Shower head and tube
Plughole
Siphon
lavabo
For daily maintenance: Use a moist soft cloth, if necessary, slightly soapy water on the
shower head and tube, as well as on the taps. Regularly empty the shower and basin
plugholes. Clean the wash-basin siphon once a month.
For more thorough maintenance, a special product for chrome - boiled white vinegar
(be careful about the vapours given off) mixed with water can also be effective. Allow the
vinegar to do its work for 20 minutes and then rinse with clear water.
If you use aerosols spray the cleaning solution on a cloth, and not directly on the items,
so as to avoid any risk of damaging the assembled units. Rinse the remains of the product
well with clear water.
Aerator
Filter
Check valve
Head
Maintenance of the aerator: To descale the aerator remove it by inserting a cloth
between the metal and the pliers so as not to damage the chrome. Take the screen ring off
and then soak it in warm alcohol vinegar to clean it.
Maintenance of the filters and check valves: These items should also be soaked in white
vinegar to eliminate any remaining scale.
Maintenance of the shower head: Use white vinegar to soak the shower head the whole
of one night. Rinse the following day.
Above all, do not use ammoniac-based or acetate-based products, or corrosive products.
Do not use a steam cleaner which may damage the product.

9. Maintenance of the ceramic materials*
wash-basin
toilet pan
The ceramic sanitary units have non-porous, very dense surfaces, with a good
resistance to scratches just as to all domestic acid and caustic products.
The basin and the toilet pan are maintained very easily with a sponge and soapy water
or a standard maintenance product. In the case of scale deposits the best plan is just to use
white vinegar more or less diluted. If the stains are really stubborn, wet a piece of a domestic
wipe with white vinegar and leave it to work on the stains the whole night.
For disinfecting, bleach diluted 2/3 with water will provide treatment without damage.
Moreover, a certain number of effective descaling products are available in the shops.
It is sufficient to let it work for a short moment before rinsing.
Never use anti-scale or soda-based, or hydrochloric, citric, formic or hydrofluoric acidbased products or their derivatives (e.g.: anti-rust product).
10. Maintenance of the polymer cement*
Put a bit of black soap or washing-up liquid on a sponge moistened
with tepid water, or a little domestic alcohol half diluted with water. For
disinfecting, dilute bleach with 3/4 of water (above all do not use it undiluted).
Do not use undiluted bleach, lemon or vinegar, above all if the polymer
cement is coloured, for these products can result in discolorations of your material.
11. Biennial maintenance of the CMV vent
Take down the CMV vent and immerge it in soapy water for about
fifteen minutes. Clean with a brush, rinse in clear water, and dry with a
clean cloth.

12. Maintenance of bathroom cabinets*
Models of bathroom cabinets
Cabinet hinge
Wipe a little diluted domestic alcohol on the whole of the cabinet if made of metal*.
For a cabinet made of a quite different material, a glass cleaning product on a cloth will be
sufficient. Maintain the mirror with a standard glass cleaning product (see para. 6).
The hinges should receive a little lubricant once or twice a year.
Precautions for use: Respect the maximum loads recommended; handle the doors
without brutality, and avoid leaning on the cabinet or holding onto the doors to stand up.
The mirrors must not be cleaned with acetone. Do not use a steam cleaner.
