General Care and Maintenance

Thermofoil and Wood Cabinets:

  • Wash down with mild dish detergent and clean warm water.
  • Dry thoroughly.
  • No Windex or Fabricated Products Required!

Note:  Water and moisture will damage the cabinets and are not covered under warranty.

Handstone/Staron/Meganite Solid Surface Counters:

  • Clean with warm water and mild dish detergent.
  • Dry thoroughly.
  • To remove hard water deposits, use a wet cloth with a mixture of one part vinegar to three parts water.
  • Dry thoroughly.
  • Scratches that can’t be felt, can be removed by applying “Vim” or “Soft Scrub” with a damp “3M Scotch-Brite (Green) pad, while rubbing in a circular motion.
  • Wipe the area with a clean cloth and warm water.
  • Dry thoroughly.

Cultured Marble Counters:

  • Clean with a soft sponge or cloth and mild soap and water.
  • To maintain luster and make cleaning easier, periodic applications of “Gel Gloss” may be applied.

Granite/Marble Counters:

  • Clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
  • Dry thoroughly.
    Note:  Do not use Windex or Ammonia based products.

Laminate / Postform Counters:

  • To clean, use a damp cloth or sponge and a mild soap.
  • If desired, “Countertop Magic” can be used a polish to enhance colour richness and increase water and stain resistance.
  • Avoid a concentration of water or wet cloths in the areas of the seams, as this may cause the seam to separate.
  • Countertop joints are water resistant, not waterproof and are not covered under warranty.

All Countertops

Hot pans and heat producing appliances may cause discoloration or cracking. If the pan is too hot to touch with your hand, do not put it directly onto your countertop – use a cutting board or similar protective shield underneath.

  • Always use a cutting board instead of cutting directly on the countertop surface.
  • Wipe up staining foods and liquids immediately. This will make clean up much easier.
  • Do not expose counters or cabinets to harsh chemicals such as paint remover, turpentine or nail polish remover. Harsh chemicals will harm the finish.
  • Do not place heat or steam producing appliances directly under upper cabinets. Steam and heat can affect the finish of wood doors and the seal of the thermofoil doors.
