Kitchen Care

Cabinets should be treated like fine furniture

Wood Cabinets

When cleaning:

  • Use only mild, non-abrasive soap and a damp cotton cloth, never harsh chemical cleaners or bleaches.
  • Use a “blotting” action rather than a wiping motion when cleaning your cabinets.
  • Don’t use too much water. Excess water use can damage your cabinets and is not covered under warranty.

Note:

  • Don’t drape damp cloths or dishtowels over cabinet doors.The moisture can cause permanent peeling and discolouration.
  • Excessive humidity levels may effect the wood and could cause warpage, swelling, and/or shrinkage to the cabinet doors.
  • Smoke from cigarettes may discolour cabinets.

Counter tops

When cleaning:

  • Use a mild soap and water solution.
  • Rinse with clean water and dry immediately.
  • Don’t use cleaners containing harsh chemicals such as ammonia, bleach, or abrasive household cleaners.
  • To avoid discolouration and water damage, do not allow water to sit on your counter top.

Note:

  • Don’t place hot pots or pans directly on your counter top. The heat may discolour or burn the counter top.
  • Don’t place appliances that generate condensation - such as kettles, coffee makers, deep fryers - directly over counter top joints.
  • Make sure your stove is flush or above the edge of the counter top. This will prevent peeling and bubbling of the laminate. Note that heat escaping through the sides of a self-cleaning oven can damage the counter.
  • Keep the laminate joints of your counter top dry. Extended exposure to water or dampness could cause the joints to split and the laminate to lift.

Thermofoil Cabinets

When cleaning:

  • Most non-abrasive household cleaners are ideal for these surfaces. Don’t use abrasive cleaners or those with acetone, ethyl alcohol, mineral oils or harsh solvents such as turpentine, which may break down cabinet edge bonds.
  • Heat can damage Thermofoil cabinets. When using heat producing appliances, such as ovens, open all doors and drawers fronts around the appliance to avoid damage.

Glass Door Cabinets

When cleaning:

  • Use a household glass cleaner sprayed directly on a clean, soft cloth.
  • Don’t let excess glass cleaner run into cabinet joints.
  • Don’t use cleaners containing sodium hydrochloride, phosphoric acid or sulfur.
