How to Maintain Wood Cabinets

If you’ve been thinking about getting new wood Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinets or are planning on it for the future, here are some of the best ways to take care of them!

Wipe before use: It can be tempting to start putting things into your cabinets just after they’re installed but it’s better to make sure they’re free from dust and other particles leftover from installation first. Use a damp cloth to wipe them all down and make sure not to scratch the wood when placing tools and appliances in them.

Immediately clean spills: Everyone is busy so it can be tempting to clean up spills later, especially if they are small. However, letting water, acid, or other chemicals to set on the wood can damage it so cleaning up right away is the safe option.

Use a soft cloth: A rougher, course cloth may seem like the better option because it can make sure all the dirt is rubbed off, however it can damage the wood and leave behind scratches. Other tools such as soap pads and brushes should be avoided as well.

Use high-quality oil: If you’re using lemon oil as a cleaner for your wood Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinets, make sure it is specially made for fine furniture. The last thing you want to do is damage your pieces because the cleaner you used was low quality. Avoid using products with wax and silicone because they can build up and highlight fingerprints, plus they are extremely hard to remove.

Avoid ammonia: Products with ammonia in them can damage the wood, so use a mild all-purpose cleaner as an alternative. If you need any suggestions on what kind of products are safe for your cabinets, our experts will be happy to give you a list of recommendations to use.
