Here are a few recommendations for caring for your wood surfaces on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis.
Daily Cabinet Cleaning
Simply wiping down your cabinets with a microfiber cloth can go a long way in keeping dirt and dust at bay. In the long run, this helps protect your cabinet finish.
Weekly Cabinet Cleaning
Use warm water and a gentle detergent to more thoroughly wipe down the inside and outside of your cabinets. Pay particular attention to crevices and hard-to-reach spots. You may want to use an old toothbrush to really get into those areas where dirt, grease, and grime can accumulate. You may also use a gentle mist of wood cleaner. Whichever option you choose, be sure to avoid oversaturating your cabinets with moisture.
Monthly Cabinet Cleaning
Apply wood polish to your cabinets and to the various wood surfaces in your home. This can help restore its shine and protective finish and also helps smooth and fill light scratches.
Annual Cabinet Cleaning
Remove all items from your cabinets to give them a thorough cleaning from top to bottom and the inside out. Now is also a great time to repair any loose or faulty hardware and add storage solutions to your cabinet boxes and drawers.
