Care and Cleaning

Caring for Your Cabinets

For wooden cabinetry, we suggest using warm water and mild soap such as dish liquid. Refrain from using other common household cleaners which may contain oils and waxes that could harm the finish on your cupboards over time.

When you use countertop appliances, such as toasters and coffee makers, pull them out from underneath your upper cabinets to avoid damage caused by heat retention. 

Glazed Cabinets

When wiping cabinets that have been glazed, do not clean any tight grooves between moldings aggressively. Gently run a cloth over the grooves and do not insert finger nails, abrasive cloths or any sharp-tipped objects as they may damage the glaze. Excessive cleaning may damage the finish or remove glaze over time and your warranty does not cover this.

Laminate Countertops

To ensure the long-lasting beauty of your countertop, follow these guidelines:

  • Avoid a concentration of water or a wet cloth at or near the junction of the countertop and the back splash or other joints. Excessive standing water in the area of the seam may cause damage—seams are water resistant, not waterproof. Damage caused by water in a seam is not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Use protective or insulating pads when placing hot pans, heated serving dishes, or activated electrical appliances on the countertop.
  • DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or steel wool; permanent scratches may result.
  • DO NOT allow household bleach to remain on the surface of the counter.
  • DO NOT use the counter as a cutting board.
  • Clean the counter with a damp cloth and mild soap. For stubborn stains use bleach or another household solvent but rinse thoroughly with water afterward.
