Maintenance & Care

General Information:
  • As a general rule, keep all cabinet surfaces dry at all times.
  • Cabinet surfaces shall be dried immediately with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth.
  • Avoid using a dish cloth or sponge. Avoid ammonia-based cleaners and soaps with dye. Harsh detergent residues may harm cabinet finishes.
  • As with all wood products, quick temperature changes and excessive moisture can be harmful to the cabinet finish and overall cabinet stability.
Basic Cleaning:
  • To remove dust after installation and for initial cleaning, use a soft, lint-free cotton cloth to wipe down all exterior and interior surfaces.
  • For regular basic cleaning, use a soft, lint-free cotton cloth dampened with a mild detergent or soap and warm water.
  • For best results, use a blotting action rather than a wiping motion, when cleaning.
  • Wipe up food spills and water spots immediately with a lint-free cotton cloth, so moisture is not absorbed into the cabinet surfaces.
Cleaning of Glass Door Inserts:
  • Use a household glass cleaner with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Apply the glass cleaner directly to the cleaning cloth rather than on the glass or mirror.
  • Avoid excess glass cleaner running into the cabinet joints.
  • Ammonia should never be used in full strength.
Basic Care & Things to Avoid:
  • When in doubt of a cleaner’s suitability, DO NOT USE.
  • Never use scouring pads, steel wool, wire brushes or powdered cleansers.
  • Never leave a cloth moistened with cleaner on any cabinet surface for any length of time.
  • Check the areas around the sink and dishwasher to make sure that water and detergents do not dry on the cabinet surfaces.
  • Avoid draping wet or damp dish towels over doors of the base cabinets.
  • Do not attach towel racks to the interior of cabinet doors.
  • Avoid placing small kitchen appliances where the heat or steam is directed onto cabinet surfaces.
  • Do not leave printed materials (newspapers, magazines, etc.) on the cabinet surfaces, as the printing can bleed into the cabinet finish.
