It is important to maintain long-lasting cabinetry to keep it looking beautiful for longer. Discover tips to recondition and restore your cabinetry with our guide to maintaining cabinetry. 

Clean them regularly

A buildup of grime or dust can not only be unsightly but also contribute to damage to your cabinetry over time. Unfortunately, dirt is not something you can prevent (especially if you have little kids). You can prevent damage to your cabinetry and keep it looking good for longer by regularly cleaning it with a wipe or sponge and warm water. Wipe off excess water with a soft cloth. If warm water doesn’t clean your cabinetry, try mild detergent or a mild soap, but avoid using any harsh chemicals. Some options for stubborn stains include a mix of water and baking soda or vinegar. Don’t forget to also wipe the inside of the cabinets and shelves.

Close the cabinetry

It is easier to clean cabinetry that do not endure prolonged exposure to dust and grime. You can achieve this by ensuring your cabinetry is closed at all times. Make sure everyone in the home has easy access to items they need so that less time is spent looking for these items, minimizing the time that cabinetry drawers are left open. Closing cabinetry also prevents moisture from humidifiers or air conditioners from damaging the wood.

Repair broken parts immediately

While you cannot always prevent damage from occurring, repairing broken parts as soon as possible will prevent further damage. You can prevent excessive repair costs by immediately taking care of existing damage. Have your door handles and kitchen cabinetry repaired promptly as these are the cabinetry you most likely use frequently. Repairing broken parts from cabinetry interiors and exteriors will ensure that it does not lead to costly repairs or replacements further down the line.
