Caring For Your Cabinets

Thank you for choosing Cosmo Cabinets. Here are a few things you can do to keep your cabinets looking fresh and maintain their appearance.

The cabinets should be dusted and/or vacuumed regularly to remove any dust particles that have accumulated. When dusting, please use a lint-free cloth dampened with warm water or a small mix of soap, following the grain of the wood, if applicable. Any residues caused from cooking oils or smoke should be wiped up with a damp cloth and a small amount of furniture cleaner. Dry surfaces immediately with a soft cloth.Wipe up spills, splatters, and water spots as they occur immediately, keeping the cabinets dry.

Things to Avoid in the Care of Your Cabinets

  • Avoid using a dish cloth or sponge. It could contain remnants of grease or detergents.
  • Do not use products with bleach, ammonia, or abrasive additives like petroleum solvents.
  • Never use scouring pads, steel wool, or powdered cleaners.
  • Do not allow oven cleaners to come in contact with wood surfaces. Avoid using solvent or petroleum based products such as nail polish removers or paint thinners.
  • Avoid using wax on your cabinets. Wax can build up over time and create a different appearance.
  • Avoid placing small kitchen appliances where heat is directed onto cabinet surfaces.
  • Avoid draping damp cloths or dish towels over cabinet doors – excessive moisture can cause permanent damage.
