Caring for Your Cabinetry

Caring for Your Cabinetry

Posted in Tips & Tricks on March 30, 2012

Customers often call us after their cabinets are installed for suggestions on how to best maintain their new cabinetry. We thought we might share our cleaning advice here on the blog so that everyone had access to these tips no matter the time of day or day of week.

The Classic Kitchens & Cabinets wood finish, whether solvent-based or AquaFinish, is as durable as it is beautiful. Our state-of-the-art finishing processes ensure you have an easy-care coating that protects your cabinetry from many common spills, moisture, and everyday wear. Synthetic options such as Thermofoil are every bit as beautiful while providing enhanced durability.

Your Classic Kitchens & Cabinets cabinetry will remain beautiful with very little maintenance. Following these tips on basic care will allow you to enjoy your cabinetry for many years to come:

  • Dust and regularly clean cabinets with a soft clean cloth dampened with water. Dry immediately with another soft clean cloth.
  • To remove oil, grease, or general soil, use a soft clean cloth dampened with a fresh solution of water and mild soap. Follow with a soft clean cloth dampened with water to clear the surface of soap residue. Finally, dry immediately with another soft clean cloth.
  • Remember: Excess moisture is one of the worst enemies of any finish. It is important to keep finished surfaces dry and to wipe any excess moisture (including spills and splashes) with a soft dry cloth immediately.
  • We recommend against using a dish cloth to wipe your cabinetry. Dish cloths can contain soap, grease, and other soil that can be detrimental to the finished surface.
  • Avoid using harsh detergents, strong soaps, abrasive cleaners, or self-polishing waxes when cleaning. It is also advisable to avoid using ammonia solutions or cleaners that contain silicone on or near cabinets as these could lead to deterioration of the finished surface.
  • Our state-of-the-art finishes do not require waxing or polishing to maintain their beauty.

Whether you're cleaning a wood door with an AquaFinish coating, a Thermofoil door, or any other material or cabinet surface, these cleaning tips will keep your cabinets looking great for many years to come.
