You have bought a practical, stylish and sophisticate product! Our cabinetry is designed to a daily use associated with normal household activities and should be treated like fine furniture.
Here are some recommendations to your cabinet care:
It is important to wipe up spills and water marks as they occur. Give special attention to areas around the sink and dishwasher. Avoid draping damp or wet dish towels over the door of the sink base cabinet. Over time, this moisture can cause permanent water damage to the door.
Care and Cleaning of Hardware
Periodically, use mild soap and warm water to clean door/drawer knobs or pulls. Thoroughly dry all hardware joints and surfaces and the surrounding area with a clean, soft cloth. Buff hardware with a clean, dry cloth. Lubrication of hinges is not necessary; however, hinges can be cleaned or dusted using cotton-tipped swabs.
CAUTION: Keep salt in a closed recipient to avoid damage on metallic hardware.
Plywood, MDF, Melamine, Formica and Wood Care
Clean cabinet exteriors and interiors using a soft, damp cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild, non-detergent soap (we recommend 100 parts water and 1 part liquid dish soap). Dry immediately. Do not use abrasive soap pads, abrasive cleansers, steel wool, bottled spray cleaners, solvent-based cleaners or cleaners containing bleach. Wax or polish is not necessary and is not recommended. Excessive moisture can damage the finish. Do not spray cleaner directly on cabinet or allow moisture to seep into seams or joints. Do not leave damp cloths draped over cabinet doors or drawer fronts.
Painting and othe High Gloss finish materials.
The high-gloss surfaces are covered with a protective film from the manufacturer. Remove the film after cabinet installation. To clean, use a microfiber cloth, chamois or other very soft cloth with a non-abrasive soap or detergent. Do not use paper towels, brushes, scourers or scrapers and avoid harsh household cleaners and abrasives such as acetone, chloroform, benzene, ammonia, thinners, caustic soda, toluene, xylene, dichloromethane, amylacetate, glacial acetate acid, butyl alcohol, butyl acetate, cellusolve, cresols/phenols, ethylacetate, chlorinated solvents, halogenated solvents, methyl alcohol, methyl ethyl keytone and sink and toilet bowl cleaners. Safely remove any adhesive near the edges with mineral spirits.
Care and Cleaning of Glass Door Inserts
If your kitchen contains glass doors, a few precautions are necessary. Apply glass cleaner to a towel, not directly to the glass. Do not use abrasives.
Clean only the high-gloss side of the door. The internal part (which is the painting itself) must be cleaned only with a soft dry cloth.
