As homeowners ourselves, we understand how important it is to make your investment last. So, right from the experts at Prime Action Remodeling, here are our tips for maintaining your new kitchen project!
Most, if not all, kitchen renovation projects involve installing new cabinets. Cabinets can get outdated and clunky, so, understandably, a new, modern update is required after ten years. So, let’s take a look at the helpful care tips for cabinets to prevent early wear and tear.
Grime and dust buildup can damage cabinets and ruin the look, especially if they’re a lighter color. But it is an easy fix. First, it’s imperative to work regular cleanings into your schedule. Usually, once every week or two weeks is a good plan for most homes. Wipe down the tops, doors, and underneath of the cabinets with warm water and a soft cloth. If any spots are left, mild dish soap can be added to the water.
There are lots of cleaning products that can damage your cabinets due to the harsh ingredients. It’s best to avoid using these products when cleaning:
- Paint thinners
- Steel wool
- Scouring pads
Do you now have a beautiful new marble or granite countertop? While they’re one of the most used aspects of a kitchen, countertops are still regular TLC to keep that sleek shine. Just like your cabinets, warm water and mild dish soap are all you need to keep them in top shape. Afterward, use a soft microfiber towel to wipe up any moisture to prevent stains or streaks.
Of course, there are things you should avoid when cleaning your countertops. Some of the following products can strip the sealant or scratch the stone.
- Citrus cleaners
Acidic cleaning products can damage your new countertop. It’s best to avoid them!
