Cabinet Finish and Wood Care
We have a few helpful suggestions to assist you in the care of your cabinets and ensure your satisfaction.
Our cabinetry is designed for use inside the home or other buildings and is not intended for outdoor applications. As with all wood products, avoid excessive moisture. Once your cabinets have been installed, wipe them down with a damp lint-free cotton cloth to remove dust. Work on small areas at a time and wipe dry.
Avoid spray-type polishes that are formulated with wax, petroleum solvents or silicones. The extensive use of wax or silicone polishes can result in a film buildup which may injure your cabinet's finish and void your warranty. Use a damp cloth when cleaning normal household spills. After wiping thoroughly, dry the surface with a lint-free cotton cloth. Always dry the surface immediately. Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, detergents or powdered cleansers. In the case of grime build-up, a soft cloth and mild soapy warm water may be used on wood surfaces if immediately rinsed and dried thoroughly.
NOTE: Do not use a dish cloth to wipe your cabinet exterior, since it may contain remnants of grease or detergents which may damage your finish.
Clean spills immediately. Give special attention to areas around the sink and dishwasher. Avoid draping damp or wet dishtowels over the door of the sink base cabinet. Over time, this moisture can cause permanent water damage to the door.
