Whether you’ve recently had new cabinets installed or you’ve noticed your cabinets are looking a little dirty, you may be wondering how to properly clean and care for your cabinetry. As the experts in custom cabinetry and cabinet refacing solutions, Reborn Cabinets offers a few tips to help you keep your cabinetry looking and functioning at its best.
Cleaning Your Cabinetry
Whether you have kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets, or cabinets anywhere else in your home, they’ll need to be cleaned from time to time, just like any other part of your home. You’ll want to start by wiping down your cabinets with a dry microfiber cloth to clear away any dust. In particular, the top edges of your cabinet doors and any surface on the door profile may collect dust over time. After any dust is cleared away, you can wipe down your cabinets with a damp cloth and a regular household cleanser. This can remove any stains or grime on your cabinets. You should avoid abrasive materials and chemicals while cleaning your cabinets, as these may scratch up the surface or damage the protective outer surface.
Caring for Your Cabinetry
In addition to cleaning your cabinetry, there are a few steps you can take to maintain your cabinets as well. Over time, you may notice that the handles, drawer pulls, or hinges become a little loose. This can happen naturally as you continue to use your cabinets. If you notice any cabinet hardware that’s starting to come loose, you can typically address these issues by tightening down the hardware with a screwdriver. This will keep your cabinets looking and functioning as they should and prevent any potential damage from loose hardware causing other components to become askew.
When to Replace Your Cabinets
Like other parts of your home, you may eventually need to consider replacing old cabinetry. If your kitchen or bathroom cabinets are damaged, sagging, leaning, or otherwise causing problems, it may be best to consider a cabinet refacing or cabinet replacement project. Cabinet refacing is a great option if your cabinet boxes are still in good condition, as this economical option simply replaces your cabinet doors and drawer fronts. However, if you’d like to change the layout of your cabinetry or your cabinet boxes are damaged, a full cabinet replacement will be the best option for you. Of course, once you get new cabinets in place, the same care and maintenance tips still apply to help ensure your bathroom or kitchen cabinets will look and function at their best for years to come.
