Cabinet Maintenance Tips

  • Always aim to remove any splatters or spills immediately to avoid damage to the finish.
  • Clean and dust your cabinets with a soft cloth on a regular basis.
  • If you wish, you can polish any wood and laminate surfaces with a good non-oil-based furniture polish. This will keep them looking new.
  • Never use any other types of cleaners or polishes on your cabinets, including bleach, detergents, citrus-based cleaners, ammonia-based cleaners, steel wool, soap pads, or abrasive cleaners. These will damage the wood finish, possibly beyond repair.
  • Use caution when positioning small appliances that generate heat near your cabinets. Cabinet finishes cannot handle temperatures higher than 174° Fahrenheit without damage.
  • Be aware that center panels in cabinets may shrink/expand seasonally due to changes in humidity.
  • Cabinet hardware is extremely sturdy and generally needs nothing more than occasional cleaning with soap and water.
  • Drawer slides are pre-greased to ensure effective operation. You gently dust them but be sure not to remove the factory applied grease.
  • Hinges are also maintenance-free. Just wipe them with a soft cloth to periodically.
  • Cabinet knobs and pulls can loosen with use. This is normal, just tighten them with a screwdriver.
