We get so many reviews about cabinet finish failing and customers that are unhappy with the finish after a given time. Most modern manufacturers use a multi step finishing process that will last for years and withstand normal use in a kitchen without an issue. But, if they are mistreated or cleaned incorrectly or in a constantly moist or wet state, then the expectancy is that the finish will breakdown. This is why there is you will most likely find a clause in your cabinet warranty voiding it is these situations occur. So it is critical to care for your cabinets properly.
1. The most important thing is to make sure you are not leaving your cabinets wet. The sink cabinet gets the most use and is closest to water, so it is important to make sure it stays as dry as possible and that you are not getting chemicals on it from the dishwasher soap or other cleaners you might be storing under the sink. These chemicals can quickly breakdown the finish on a cabinet and you need to avoid getting them on your cabinets.
2. Clean your cabinets with a soft cloth and water. No need to use chemicals because your cabinet finish is designed with a sheen that is intentional. If you are using something to clean them and make them shiny, you are adding chemicals to your cabinets that could be slowly eating away at the finish of your cabinets.
If you care for your quality made cabinets properly, you can expect a lifetime of use and beauty!
