How To Clean Wood Kitchen Cabinets?
To minimize any damage to your cabinets associated with the effects of grease, moisture and food spills associated with normal household work, your cabinets should be treated as you would treat fine furniture.
Minneapolis Contractor’s Choice-MCC recommends that you to follow these simple steps to care for your cabinetry:
Solid Wood, Aluminum, Thermofoil, Eurotek, Melamine, Aluminum Cabinetry
Clean cabinets using a soft, damp cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild, non-detergent soap (just a few drops of liquid dish soap in a your cleaning pail of warm water will work). Make sure to dry the cabinets immediately. Do not wax, polish or use abrasive cleansers. Don’t spay cleaner directly on your cabinet and don’t leave damp cloths over cabinets, as moisture can damage the finish.
Wood and Eurotek Cabinetry
The hard, catalyzed varnish protecting your cabinets is intended to resist foods, beverages and household agents normally found in today’s homes.
Thermofoil cabinets are durable, but can be damaged by excessive heat. You need to make sure your installer properly installs heat shields/panels to protect cabinets adjacent to ovens, dishwashers and ranges.
It is a good precaution to open doors and drawers away from oven during self –cleaning cycles; the high-temperature will damage your cabinets. Damage caused by heat will not be covered under warranty.
Stainless Steel Cabinetry
Stainless Steel Cabinet doors should be cleaned using a soft cloth and a stainless steel cleaner.
Ultralux cabinets are covered with a film from the manufacturer to protect the high- gloss surfaces. Remove the film after your cabinets are installed. Use a microfiber cloth or other very soft cloth with a non-abrasive soap or detergent.
