Glenwood Kitchen finishes will remain beautiful with very little maintenance. Following these simple steps will keep your finished item looking like new for many years.
REMOVE DUST – Dust build-up which is made up of small airborne particles, may scratch or dull the surface if not removed correctly. Simply wipe the surface with a clean cloth dampened with a fresh solution of mild soap and water or vinegar and water. We also recommend a safe and effective “Mohawk cabinet cleaner” please contact your nearest dealer for details.
CLEAN – Fingerprints, cooking fumes, smoke residue, etc, accumulates on any finished surface. None of these contaminates will harm our finish, but they should be periodically removed to restore the finish to it’s original luster. Just wipe the surface with a clean cloth dampened with a fresh solution of mild detergent solutions. Avoid the use of strong soap, ammonia based products, silicone oils or self-polishing waxes as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time. Ammonia based cleaners will cause your finish cabinets to yellow. The finish is durable and resistant to most household spills. However, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential problems, again we recommend our “Mohawk cabinet cleaner”.
NOTE: Excessive, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures and high humidity cause damage to both the finish and the wood itself. These should be avoided.
