Remove Dust

Dust buildup is comprised of small airborne particles and may scratch or dull the surface if not removed correctly. Simply wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a non-wax cleaning polish or mild detergent.


Fingerprints, cooking fumes, smoking residue and other will accumulate on any surface. None of these contaminants will harm the finish of your LaFata cabinets but they should be periodically removed to restore the finish to its original luster. Just wipe the surface with a cloth dampened with a non-wax cleaner or mild detergent solution. Avoid using ammonia-based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over an extended period of time. Do not use: Lemon oil, Murphy’s Oil Soap, Liquid Gold, abrasive cleaners or self-polishing waxes with cleaners, solvents or alcohol.

Cabinet Finishing

Other Considerations

  • Your cabinets’ finish is durable and resistant to most household spills, however, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential damage.
  • Excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures and high humidity should be avoided as they can cause damage to both the finish and the wood itself.
  • Treat your cabinets as you would fine furniture. Clean at least every 6 months. 

When you follow these simple steps, your LaFata cabinets will reward you with lasting beauty and utility.
