To help you keep your doors and cabinets in the best condition for as long as possible, follow these simple care and maintenance tips. As always, if you have any questions about the cleaning and care of your doors and units, give us a call.

Care during fitting

When you receive your doors and units, carefully peel away the protective plastic film to check there are no marks or damage – then replace it until your units are in place. Try to avoid storing or fitting your new units in rooms with high humidity, as this may cause damage to surfaces.

Be aware of heat sources – doors can be fitted with heat deflector strips to protect them. Doors with a vinyl finish should not be exposed to temperatures over 70°C.

General cleaning tips

  • Use warm, soapy water (washing-up liquid is ideal) and soft cloths to wash and dry your doors
  • Wipe any spots and spills as soon as you notice them - it's easier to clean them straight away than after they've dried
  • Don't let liquids seep into the joints of doors and units
  • Avoid the following cleaning products: wax furniture polish, cleaning products containing bleach or chlorine, abrasive products and fabrics, solvents, multi-purpose cleaning sprays, and anything containing ammonia or alcohol. 

Gloss-finish doors

Clean gloss-finish doors with warm soapy water and a non-abrasive cloth or sponge, then dry well with a soft cloth. A mild detergent is best - washing-up liquid is fine. If there are any streaks left on your gloss doors after cleaning them, you can try a glass-cleaning spray, or even just some vinegar diluted in lots of water.
