01 Jan Basics on RTA Cabinet Cleaning
You’ve recently made a great decision, upgrading to quality RTA cabinets from Knotty Alder Cabinets. You’re now set with a high-quality cabinet material that will last you and your family for years with no major issues.
One of the first considerations you should make once your beautiful new cabinets are in place? Properly cleaning and maintaining them to maximize their lifespan and usefulness. Here are some basic cleaning tips for a few different kinds of clean.
There are some areas of RTA cabinets that need to be cleaned every week, primarily the countertop areas. This goes beyond daily spot cleaning – at least once a week, dust these areas and any others that are regularly exposed to crumbs or other debris.
In addition, remember that you won’t always be able to see every spill or accident fully. A weekly run-down of all the major surfaces helps you avoid sneaky buildups in areas you might not be able to pick up – things like grease or smoke discoloration.
Cleaning Food and Canned Goods
Cabinets are home to dishes and other dinnerware, but they’re also often in charge of storing food items like canned goods, chips, cereal, spices and many others. Some of these items will be used more than others, and over time, this may cause certain items to essentially be forgotten in the back of the cabinet. At least once or twice a year, go through cabinets and remove any expired food or items that are just taking up space.
Once a month or every few months, plan to deep clean your cabinets. Open doors and remove all items inside, whether food, dishes or otherwise. Remove any dust or debris inside, and hit any buildup areas. How often you do this will depend on how clean you are on a daily basis, and on whether you have glass doors – cabinets with glass doors require more regular cleaning.
