Cabinet Care

Information and guidance in helping you care for your cabinets after installation

According to the American Hardwood Council, confusion is fueled by the myth that wood is "alive" and needs to breathe. On the contrary, according to the council's information center, wood doesn't need to be "moisturized" with oily cleaners and polishes. If wood dries and cracks it's due to changes in humidity, not for lack of oil.

Basic Cabinet Care Tips

Wipe up spills, splatters and water spots as they occur - keep the cabinets dry

Clean as needed with a soft, lint free cloth. Use a mild detergent or soap and warm water

Dry surfaces immediately with a soft cloth

Avoid using a dishcloth or sponge - it could contain remnants of grease or detergents

Do not use products with bleach, ammonia or abrasive additives

Do not allow oven cleaners to come in contact with wood finishes

Avoid placing small kitchen appliances where heat is directed onto cabinet surfaces

Avoid draping damp cloths or dishtowels over cabinet doors - excessive moisture can cause permanent damage

Do not use waxes or polishes
