Cabinet Care Tips

Care and maintenance are quite easy. After installation and about twice a year thereafter, you should clean your cabinets with a mild, non-abrasive soap and water solution applied and dried with a soft cloth. Wipe up any spills as they occur and take care to wipe up any water around the places that are susceptible to moisture (around the sink, dishwasher, oven, etc).

Polishing should be done sparingly, if at all. Polishes build up over time and may affect the beauty of your finish, especially if your cabinets have a flat varnish on them. If you feel you have to polish your cabinets, make sure you use a high-quality cream or an oil furniture polish. Make sure it does not contain any wax or silicone.

Cabinets finished with catalyzed conversion varnish or lacquer may be cleaned up occasionally by wiping with a damp cloth or mild soap and water.

Cabinets should be dried off with a soft cloth after cleaning.

Wipe off up any spills as they occur.

To help remove grease build up, a vinegar and water solution is recommended. This will not leave a residue. Abrasive cleaners (such as Comet, Soft Scrub, Ajax) should not be used.

Spray wax products such as Pledge should not be used, as they may yellow over time.

Incorrect humidity can adversely affect wood. We recommend maintaining an indoor relative humidity of 30% to 50%.
