HUMIDITY & TEMPERATURE
Wood Cabinetry and Furniture should be placed in moderate temperatures (60-80 °F) and moderate humidity (30%-60% RH).
WOOD & WATER DON'T MIX
To limit the fading effects of ultra violet (UV) rays, furniture should not be placed in direct sunlight. Blinds, curtains and UV furniture polish help protect wood furniture from UV rays.
Heavy accessories may cause distortion to the top of the finish. Use cork or felt pads under accessories, not rubber or plastic. Lift objects rather than dragging them across the furniture surface. Rotate objects several times a year.
To limit damage to wood finishes, replace vinyl and plastic tablecloths or place mats with linen. Cloth place mats should not be left on furniture for extended periods of time.
CLEANING GLASS CABINET DOORS
When cleaning glass cabinet doors - Spray a little glass cleaner onto a clean, soft, lint-free cotton cloth and wipe until the glass is clean. Next use a dry, clean, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth and wipe until streak free and dry.
OVENS, RANGES AND CABINETRY
Do not allow oven cleaner to touch any part of your cabinetry.
Self cleaning ovens use intense heat as a cleaning agent, if the oven’s heat gasket is damaged or does not seal properly, this intense heat can cause damage to your cabinetry.
COFFEE MAKERS & TOASTERS MOUNTED BENEATH CABINETS
We strongly recommend that you do not use these heat producing appliances beneath cabinets. Both the excessive heat and moisture from these appliances can damage cabinetry.
DISHWASHERS & CABINETRY
Do not open your dishwasher during a cycle. Excess water falling out of the dishwasher could be absorbed by your cabinet’s Toe Kick. Wait until your dishwasher has finished cleaning and the heat and steam has dissipated before opening.
