Please note that although these units have been designed or supplied by dovau bathrooms to give years of pleasure and satisfaction, you will help maintain the original beauty of your bathroom by following these guidelines.

Melamine, Vinyl and Foil Wrapped Doors

Occasional marks, can in most cases, be removed with a soft damp cloth. More persistent marks can
be removed using a non silicone based furniture cleaner. Hot soapy water should be avoided. Once
the mark is removed, the area should be wiped over with a damp cloth to remove any excess and dried with a soft clean cloth. On no account should solvent or an abrasive cleaner be used as permanent damage to the finish could take place.

High Gloss Doors

Use a cleaning product not containing aggressive substances like acetone, alcohol, bleach … as those
components could seriously damage the surface of the door. The best would be to use a soft cotton or
micro fibre cloth with only water and soft soap (containing a maximum 1% of liquid soap)

Carcase Components

Do not use polish on any surfaces. A damp cloth with soapy water will clean off most marks or spills.
On no account should any spillage, even water, be allowed to lie on the surface. Bleaches, scouring
pads and multi-surface cleaners should not be used.

Drawers, Runners, Door Hinges

These should be wiped out with a damp soapy cloth and wiped dry with a soft cloth as necessary. The
roller runners and hinges are lubricated and should not be cleaned with a degreasing agent as this will affect the action of the moving parts. Never lean on partially or fully opened doors and drawers in order to gain access to the units. The hinges are specified to adequately support the weight of the door, plus small additional weights such as wire accessories. It is advised that once the bathroom has been installed you should check every six months that all screws on the hinges are tight.


Although the worktop is hard-wearing, sharp objects will scratch and excessive heat will scorch the surface.
Care should be taken not to drop any heavy objects onto the worktop as the surface may crack.
For cleaning, a damp soapy cloth will clean off most spills. Bleaches, scouring pads and multi-surface
cleaners should not be used. Corrosive liquids and make-up should be wiped off immediately. On no
account should any spillage, even water, be allowed to lie on the surface.

Temperature and Humidity

Avoid excessive change in temperature and humidity. Always try to ensure adequte ventilation.


If it is your intention to remove and replace your bathroom fittings with “like for like” units, then this is classed as “non regulated” and no building regulations would be required. However, building regulation approval may be required if the bathroom refurbishment involves altering the drainage or the internal layout within the dwelling to accommodate the new fitting such as a second bathroom. In this instance, we would advise you to contact the Building Control Department at your local authority to discuss the need for a formal building regulation application.
Macerator – Current building regulations specify that a sanipump Smallbore system can be fitted in a
dwelling where there is also a normal gravity discharge W.C. It should not be the only W.C. facility.
Electrical – Remember that double pole isolating switches are required for all electrical points apart from special razor sockets. All work must conform to BS7671: 2008 the current I.E.E. Regulations.
