Cabinet Care

Here are a few helpful tips proper cabinet staining and care of your Envii cabinets.

Wood cabinet finishes may be cleaned and protected by using commercially available cleaning polish. Please be aware that wax polishes can result in a wax film build-up over time and silicone polishes can harm the cabinet finish. For these reasons, we recommend using an emulsion-type cleaner, because they are made without wax, petroleum solvents, or silicone.

Treat your cabinets as you would any fine furniture. Remember…water is wood’s worst enemy. The areas around the sink, range, dishwasher, oven, and toe kicks are the most susceptible to water. Wipe up spills and water marks as they occur. Avoid hanging damp or wet dish towels over the doors of the cabinets, as the moisture will cause permanent damage to the finish.

Dust cabinets regularly with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth slightly with water, wipe one area at a time, and then dry.

Cabinet Stain Tips

For stubborn stains, use a clean cloth dampened with a solution of mild, non-alkaline soap (like dishwashing liquid or Murphy’s Oil Soap) and water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth and buff lightly, following the direction of the grain. Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or powdered cleansers. And never, ever use oven cleaner!

Cabinet Care Tips

To clean cabinet interiors, simply wipe with a damp cloth or sponge and dry with a clean cloth.

If your cabinets have glass doors, clean the glass carefully. Do not spray glass cleaner directly onto glass. Instead, apply the cleaner onto a cloth or paper towel, then wipe the glass. Glass cleaners that contain ammonia can damage wood finishes as well as the protective finishes on many metal handles and other hardware.

Avoid using harsh metal polishes for pulls and knobs. Most manufacturers recommend using mild soap and warm water to clean cabinet hardware. Buff the hardware with a clean, dry cloth.

Avoid using your dishcloth to clean or dry cabinets, as it may contain traces of detergent or grease.

Repair damaged finishes carefully. Because Envii uses several processes and finishing materials, repairing a damaged finish can be a little tricky. For this reason, we recommend using the Touch Up Kit that came with your cabinets.

Adjusting the doors and drawers is straightforward and requires only a Phillips screwdriver. If you are looking for high quality, best value cabinets, find a dealer today. Or If you are interested in becoming a cabinet dealer, request more information.
