Care and Cleaning Guide PDF  

UltraCraft® cabinetry is designed to withstand the daily use associated with normal household activities and should be treated like fine furniture. Follow these simple recommendations to care for your cabinetry:

WOOD, MELAMINE, ALUMINUM, THERMOFOIL AND EUROTEK CABINETRY

Clean cabinet exteriors and interiors using a soft, damp cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild, non-detergent soap (we recommend 100 parts water and 1 part liquid dish soap). Dry immediately. Do not use abrasive soap pads, abrasive cleansers, steel wool, bottled spray cleaners, solvent-based cleaners or cleaners containing bleach. Wax or polish is not necessary and is not recommended. Excessive moisture can damage the finish. Do not spray cleaner directly on cabinet or allow moisture to seep into seams or joints. Do not leave damp cloths draped over cabinet doors or drawer fronts.

WOOD AND EUROTEK CABINETRY

The tough, catalyzed varnish protecting your cabinetry is designed to resist foods, beverages and household agents normally found in today’s homes.

THERMOFOIL CABINETRY

Thermofoils, while very durable, can be damaged by excessive heat. Properly installed Heat Shields protect cabinets adjacent to ovens, ranges and dishwashers. As a precaution, you may wish to open doors and drawers away from oven during high-temperature, self-cleaning cycles. Also, pull countertop appliances, such as toasters, ovens, grilles or coffee makers, out from under the cabinetry before use. Damage caused by excessive heat is not covered under warranty.

STAINLESS STEEL CABINETRY

Stainless Steel cabinet doors should be cleaned using a soft cloth and any stainless steel cleaner available at your local supermarket.

ULTRALUX CABINETRY

The high-gloss surfaces of UltraLux are covered with a protective film from the manufacturer. Remove the film after cabinet installation. To clean, use a microfiber cloth, chamois or other very soft cloth with a non-abrasive soap or detergent. Do not use paper towels, brushes, scourers or scrapers and avoid harsh household cleaners and abrasives such as acetone, chloroform, benzene, ammonia, thinners, caustic soda, toluene, xylene, dichloromethane, amylacetate, glacial acetate acid, butyl alcohol, butyl acetate, cellusolve, cresols/phenols, ethylacetate, chlorinated solvents, halogenated solvents, methyl alcohol, methyl ethyl keytone and sink and toilet bowl cleaners. Safely remove any adhesive near the edges with mineral spirits.
