Your new Siteline Cabinetry is manufactured with catalyzed finish materials that require no future maintenance beyond periodic cleaning.
Below are a few recommendations for you to keep in mind.
- Treat your cabinets as you do your fine furniture.
- Dust regularly with a soft cloth.
- Always wipe up food and beverage spills immediately after they occur. Pay special attention to the bottom edges of doors and drawer fronts.
- Regularly clean small areas at a time with a mild, liquid, non-abrasive cleaner. Apply cleaner to the cloth, not directly to the cabinet.Dry cabinets immediately. Cloth diapers or microfiber cloths work well.
- Dry cabinet immediately.
- Excess moisture is one of the worst enemies of any finish. Sink, range, dishwasher and oven areas are the most at risk. Promptly remove any water spills and excess moisture/steam from cabinets using a clean, soft cloth.
- To avoid dimensional changes in or damage to components of finished wood cabinetry, it must be maintained in an environment between 25% and 50% relative humidity and a temperature range of 40 to 100 degrees.
Below are a few things we don’t recommend doing to your new Siteline cabinets.
- Do not wax Siteline cabinets.
- Do not use a cloth that was used on dishes or countertops, as it may contain residue and fibers that will harm the finish of your cabinets.
- Do not allow oven cleaners, harsh detergents, or abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or steel wood to touch your cabinetry.
- Do not clean in direct sunlight.
- Do not clean or wipe your cabinets with paper towels.
- Do not rub the sharp edges of doors and drawer fronts.
Here are a few specific dos and don’ts for our high gloss finishes.
- Clean infrequently with a soft cloth, moistened in a mild soap and warm water solution. Rinse and allow to air dry.
- Do not use paper towels, brushes, glass cleaner, wax, or oil polish on these finishes. Use of these products creates microscopic scratches in the finish which will, over time, create a hazed or smeared look which will be very difficult to remove.
How about our metal doors? Here are a few recommendations.
- Clean with mild soap and warm water solution.
- Dry immediately with towel or microfiber cloth.
- Fingerprints may be removed with stainless steel cleaner and soft cloth.
- Avoid abrasive cleaners or steel wool which can scratch or pit the finish.
Here are a few specific dos and don’ts for our acrylic finishes.
- Our Acrylic surfaces are covered with a protective film up to the time of use, which means up to the point of everyday use in the kitchen or bathroom. Normally the protective film stays on the surface during processing and installation.
- After removal of the protective film, the surface is ready for daily use. No additional polishing is necessary.
- For cleaning our Acrylics, normally available cleaning agents can be used with a wet microfiber cloth.
- The use of abrasive effect cleaning agents and scouring agents can cause damage and should be avoided. The surface of is, however, resistant to very chemicals. In case of doubt, suitability and resistance should be checked on a sample surface.
