CARE & CLEANING

Wood Exteriors

Color and grain variations are natural characteristics in wood surfaces.  And since no two trees are alike, every piece of wood will reflect these variations.  Toners and stains will help to blend some of these natural variations.  Finishes are not designed to totally eliminate the variations but to enhance the natural charm and characteristics of the wood. 

Riceland Cabinet protects your cabinetry using a Catalyzed Conversion Varnish, which will not dull, whiten, or yellow as it ages or becomes exposed to sunlight.  This finish meets all KCMA (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association) test requirements.  The result is a strong and durable finish that will outlast standard lacquers which tend to dull and yellow over time.  This finish has a high resistance to moisture and damage from household chemicals.   The following instructions will ensure the longest possible service and beauty of the finish applied to your cabinetry at the factory.

After Installation

Always use a clean, soft cloth when cleaning your cabinet.  Clean all surfaces with a damp cloth, drying it immediately with a dry cloth.

Cleaning (Laminate & Wood Cabinets)

Wipe the cabinet surface with a clean, damp cloth and they dry immediately with a dry, clean cloth.  Use mild soap and water to remove oil, grease or other materials from the surface.  Make sure to rinse off all residue from the surface with a soft, damp cloth.  Even though our cabinets have a strong and durable finish applied to each cabinet, make sure to clean up spills as quickly as possible to ensure the lasting beauty of your cabinets.

Scratches & Nicks

Scratches and niches can be hidden or eliminated by using a touch up kit on shallow scratches.  These areas can be blended with surrounding areas using a light coat of wax.

Things to Avoid

Do not use a dishcloth to clean the cabinets, as it may contain grease, detergent, or other household chemicals that may damage your cabinet’s finish.  Do not use any kind of wax on Thermofoil or laminate cabinets.
