Your cabinets are a central part of your kitchen. Not only do they serve as a great storage option, they add to the overall design of your kitchen as well. After installing new cabinets, you’ll want to make sure they last for years to come. To ensure their longevity, you’ll need to do some things to maintain them. Here are some ways you can maintain your kitchen’s cabinets.
Clean Up Spills Immediately
The kitchen can be a messy place! If you notice that some food has splattered onto your cabinets, it’s best to clean it up as soon as possible. If you don’t, the stain will set in and become very hard to get out. Stains can ruin your cabinets’ aesthetics and make them look much older and worn-out than they are.
Clean Your Cabinets Regularly
Don’t wait until your cabinets get stained to clean them. Regular cleaning can go a long way towards preserving your cabinets. It’s important that you use the right cloth and cleaner though. Avoid using harsh cleaners with bleach or ammonia and scours with rough surfaces. These things can ruin your cabinet’s exterior. Use a mixture of dish soap and water and a soft cloth to clean your cabinets.
Avoid Moisture As Much As Possible
Naturally, you can’t completely avoid moisture in your kitchen. Your sink and steam from cooking are both sources of moisture that are always in your kitchen. However, you should try to cut down your cabinets’ exposure to moisture as much as possible. If you notice that water has gotten on your cabinets, dry it off as soon as possible.
Avoid Temperature Extremes
If you have wood cabinets, this tip is for you. Temperature extremes can cause your cabinets to warp, which can cause issues with how it opens or closes. This can not only be annoying, but it could result in you having to repair or replace your cabinets.
