Best Practices for Cleaning Kitchen Cabinets

Here at Silver Tree Wood Refinishing, the beauty of your home is our number one priority when completing services for you. However, there are plenty of things YOU can be doing to keep your kitchen looking and feeling clean and beautiful. Your kitchen cabinets are a major investment, and it’s important to keep them clean and looking their best. Here are some best practices for cleaning kitchen cabinets:

  1. Choose the right cleaning solution.

The type of cleaning solution you use will depend on the type of finish on your cabinets. For painted cabinets, a mild dish soap and water solution will do the trick. For wood cabinets, you can use furniture polish or a natural cleaner made from vinegar and water.

  1. Avoid using abrasive cleaners.

Abrasive cleaners can scratch the finish on your cabinets, so it’s important to avoid them. Instead, use a soft cloth or sponge when cleaning your cabinets.

  1. Dry your cabinets thoroughly.

Leaving your cabinets wet can cause them to warp or swell, so it’s important to dry them thoroughly after cleaning. You can use a soft cloth or a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.

  1. Clean your cabinets regularly.

The more often you clean your cabinets, the easier it will be to keep them clean. A quick wipe down with a damp cloth once a week will help to prevent dirt and grime from building up.

  1. Deep clean your cabinets seasonally.

For a deeper clean, you may need to empty your cabinets and give them a good scrubbing. Be sure to clean the inside of the cabinets as well as the outside.

  1. Protect your cabinets from the elements.

If your kitchen cabinets are exposed to the elements, you may need to take extra steps to protect them. For example, you can apply a sealant to the wood cabinets to help prevent them from fading or cracking. Lucky for you, Silver Tree Wood Refinishing can provide you with state-of-the-art wood cabinet and floor refinishing to assist in the protection of these precious surfaces. 

By following these best practices, you can keep your kitchen cabinets looking their best for years to come. With a little care and attention, you can keep your kitchen cabinets looking their best for years to come.
