CLEANING & CARE

DAILY CARE

  • For basic cleaning, we recommend using a soft cloth with a mild dish soap such as Dawn, and warm water. Wipe the cabinets down, and be sure to dry thoroughly. 

  • For spills or watermarks, we recommend you wipe those up as soon as they occur. Use a soft, damp cloth, be sure to avoid scouring pads and abrasive cleaners. Dry thoroughly.

  • Frequently look around areas near the sink & dishwasher to be sure they are wiped down after use to avoid stains or warping.

  • Avoid draping damp or wet dishtowels over the door of the sink base cabinet. Overtime the moisture can cause permanent water damage to the door.

  • Avoid high temperatures and humidity throughout the year. Extremes in temperature & humidity can cause wood to warp or the glue used in applying veneers to loosen.

  • Never place furniture in direct sunlight, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause change in color.

  •  As with all wood products, avoid excessive moisture. LaFata Cabinets is designed for use inside the home or other buildings and is not intended for outdoor applications.  

  • Once your cabinets have been installed, wipe down all exteriors with a damp cloth to remove dust.  Complete a small area at a time and wipe dry.  

  • Wood cabinetry finishes may be cleaned and protected by using a damp cloth with a mild detergent.

AGENTS

  • Use a damp cloth when cleaning normal household spills. After wiping thoroughly, dry the surface with lint-free cotton.

  • For stubborn stains, it may be necessary to use a mild detergent or dish soap with warm water.  Always dry the surface immediately.

 

  • Avoid spray-type polishes containing petroleum solvents.

  •  Do not uses wax polishes on the surface of your cabinets as this may cause a build-up of film to develop that may pick up dirt, smoke or other pollutants in the air.  This film may then start to smudge or streak.  

  •  Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or powdered cleansers.  Do not allow oven cleaner to touch any part of the cabinet.  Do not use a dishcloth to wipe your cabinet exterior, since it may contain remnants of grease or detergents.
