Cleaning your Cabinetry is simple. Most of the time, a clean, lint-free damp cloth is all that’s necessary.
Periodically remove dust from cabinets with a soft lint-free cloth. The cloth may be slightly dampened with water.
Always use a clean cloth. A cloth used on dishes or countertops could contain detergents, residue or fibers that could harm your cabinets.
Only use mild, non-abrasive cleaners when needed. Murphy’s Oil Soap is recommended.
Always apply the cleanser to your cleaning cloth, not directly to the cabinet.
Dry immediately as you go.
Do not wax your cabinets.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, powder cleaners or furniture cleaners that remove wax.
Do not allow oven cleaners to touch your cabinetry.
Even with normal use, you will need to touch up cabinetry. We recommend ordering a Touch-Up Kit when you order the cabinetry. Keep it in a safe place for future needs.
Be aware that wood cabinetry installed in certain climates will take on or lose moisture, causing swelling or shrinkage of the components. Doors will swell in humid environments. While shrinkage will not generally be as significant as potential swelling, it does occur.
You may need to adjust your doors and drawers seasonally as temperatures change.
