Because every tree is different in grain and texture, wood of the same species will vary and will accept stain colors differently. Variations in grain and color are natural characteristics of all cabinet woods and is considered acceptable — even desirable — and contribute to the distinctive beauty of the cabinets. Our furniture quality finish protects the wood and brings out the full beauty and depth of the wood.
After installation, wipe the cabinets with a clean soft cloth dampened with water. Dry immediately with another clean soft cloth.
Regular cleaning requires only a rubbing with a clean damp cloth and drying. Remove oil, grease or the general soil of daily use with a clean cloth dampened with a fresh solution of mild soap and water. Rinse with a clean cloth dampened with clean water and dry thoroughly. Do not use your dish cloth to clean or dry your cabinets. It may contain remnants of detergents and grease.
Nicks and scratches can be covered with a wood tone putty stick. Excess moisture is one of the worst enemies of any finish. Sink, range, dishwasher, oven and baseboard areas are the most susceptible. Dry off any wet areas with a clean cloth where water may have spilled.
Do not use citrus-based cleaners, harsh detergents, strong soaps, abrasive cleaners or self-polishing waxes. These may have a damaging effect on your finish.
