Maintenance and care for your modular kitchen

The strength and longevity of anything that you purchase depends partly on the quality of the product and the rest on the care that you show towards your purchase while you are using it.
A modular kitchen like any other machine requires some maintenance so that you can keep it's function ability to the maximum. These few tips will help you not only in taking out the optimum usage of your kitchen but ways to prolong its utility:-

  • Clean the filters of your chimney
    The air that is sucked through the filters has reminisces of smoke and steam like dust and grease that get stuck in the filters and if they are not cleaned out will hinder the suction capacity of the chimney that you are using. thus it is advisable that the filters of the chimney that can be easily removed are cleaned at least once a month so that it can function to the best of its abilities.
  • The water area of a kitchen
    Thought he aluminium covered panels of the sink area will help in avoiding any rotting but a continuous flow of water on any kind of material can be detrimental thus take care that no faucets under the sink are not leaking. the continuous flow of water may cause the panel to rust and thus lead to breakage if exposure to a flow of water is continuous.
  • Drawers in your kitchens
    the maximum capacity that a modular kitchen drawer can hold is up to 70 kg but when you lean on it when you are trying to access something on a higher or lower level it loosens the channels on which it is running. when any person leans on the drawers the channels on which they are running are bearing a weight that is above their local bearing capacity and thus may lead to the loosening of the fitting and if done continuously may break.
  • Panels of a modular kitchen
    Try and not put a lot of body weight on the panels of the kitchen as well. for instance if you are leaning on an open panel that is on hinges it is not equipped to take your body weight and thus it might hold for a few times but eventually the hinge will be dislocated from its box and you will have to contact your kitchen dealer to get it fixed.

Modular Kitchens myths debunked!

Whenever you are thinking of building your new kitchen and are leaning towards a modular one a lot of myths that have been circulating the market due to incomplete information clouds your mind with doubt about the strength and utility of a new product. The questions that generally arise are:-
  • ·         Are modular kitchens strong enough?

The answer that question is a definite yes since the carcasses of the boxes which are the basic structure of your kitchen are made from 18mm water resistant and termite proof plywood. This material is not only easier to work with but also can be easily assembled and dismantled thus if ever you are shifting your kitchen can be re installed in the new location.
  • ·         What about the water area of a modular kitchen wouldn't it rot due to continuous water flow?

Through our experience and taking in advice from different experts we put panels near the water area that are made of aluminium thus are rust proof. These panels are removable thus you can make sure that they are always clean as well.
  • ·         There is not enough storage capacity in a modular kitchen

While the modular kitchen is being made and the drawers are being put there are different channels of different companies like MARS, Hettich etc that allow weight loads up to 50 kg to be put in each drawer.

The modular kitchen is an amalgamation of smart design and beautiful finish that equips it to handle the harsh and unpredictable environment of an Indian kitchen.
