CLEANING, CARE + MAINTENANCE OF YOUR WHITEBOARD

PolyVision e3 CeramicSteel whiteboard surfaces are guaranteed to withstand the rigors of everyday classroom use and offer exceptional writing performance, superior erasability and are resilient to scratches, stains and fading. Proper use and maintenance will keep your board looking like new.

Recommended Accessories:
  1. Use high-quality, (avoid low odor) dry-erase markers to avoid poor erasability.
  2. Replace markers when almost dry to avoid poor erasability.
  3. Replace the eraser felt regularly. Dirty felt or erasers will result in poor erasability.
First use of e3 CeramicSteel whiteboard:
  1. If present, remove the protective film.
  2. Wipe board with a clean cloth moistened with a high-quality whiteboard cleaner.
  3. Rinse with clean, warm water to remove any cleaner residue.
  4. Wipe surface dry with a clean cloth.
General cleaning instructions for e3 CeramicSteel whiteboard:
  1. Wipe surface with a clean cloth moistened with a high-quality whiteboard cleaner or warm water. 
    Note: Using a non-appropriate cleaner may result in poor dry erasability due to the build-up of residues from the cleaner on the surface.
  2. Rinse with clean, warm water to remove any cleaner residue.
  3. Wipe surface dry with a clean cloth.
  4. Surfaces used moderately should be cleaned two to three times per week. Surfaces used more intensely may require daily cleaning.
Removing permanent marker:
  1. To quickly and easily remove permanent marker, write over the top of the writing with a dry-erase marker. Then, simply erase. In most cases, this will remove the marker. If deeper cleaning is required:
  2. Moisten a clean, dry cloth with rubbing alcohol.
  3. Wipe the surface in a circular motion to loosen marker residue.
  4. Rinse with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
  5. Repeat these steps as necessary to remove all residue.
Removing metal scratches or stubborn residues:
  1. Moisten a clean, dry cloth with water.
  2. Apply a small amount of an abrasive cleanser to the cloth.
    Note: For best results, follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the label.
  3. Working in small sections, clean the area using a back-and-forth motion with gentle pressure.
  4. Wipe off all residue with a dry cloth
  5. Soap residues on the surface will result in decreased dry erasability. Therefore, rinse well with clean water and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
