When you first moved in to SunRiver St. George, you received a selection sheet with the brand, style, and color of the cabinets in your home.
This can come in handy if you ever need to re-stain a spot or area of a cabinet. It’s important to note that due to the natural differences in the grain of wood, you might notice a slight variation in the wood or in the way the wood absorbed the stain. This is completely normal for wood.
To clean your cabinets, wood polishers or products which contain lemon oil are suggested. You should follow the directions on the container, and use these products not more than once every three to six months because doing so more often can lead to build-up on the cabinets. It’s recommended you avoid any spray waxes which are paraffin based and it’s important not to wash the cabinets with water. Wood will naturally absorb the water and it can damage the wood and the finish over time.
If you notice the hinges catching or the guides on your drawers moving slower than they should, apply a small amount of lubricant to help fix the problem. You can find lubricant at any home improvement or discount store.
It’s also important to remember that certain appliances can produce excess moisture which can damage cabinets. Things like crock pots should never be placed underneath a cabinet or where the heat which escapes could come into contact with a cabinet door. With just a little maintenance and a bit of prevention, your cabinets should remain beautiful and functional for years to come.
