A Checklist to Deep Clean Your Cabinets
Your kitchen's overall appearance and feel will be enhanced if your cabinets are kept clean and well organized. We recommend deep cleaning your kitchen cabinets once per month to extend their life span and keep them in great shape. Here's a checklist to help you get started if you aren't sure where to begin or what you should do.
Deep Cleaning Your Kitchen Cabinets
While you most likely clean your kitchen countertops daily to keep them spotless, when was the last occasion that you cleaned your cabinets? The kitchen is one of the most frequently used rooms in a home. It can collect dirt, grease, and other contaminants just like your countertops. You can see the buildup of gunk over time, and you may be harboring food-borne diseases like salmonella. Spruce says that cabinet knobs and handles can easily become contaminated by bacteria like salmonella. We agree that old food particles and grime do not belong in the places we store our food ...". Kitchen cabinets can be cleaned every day with a quick wipe down, but they do need to be deep cleaned once in a while.
Your Cabinet Cleaning List
Make sure to wipe up grease and spills after you cook in order to prevent bigger messes later.
- Clean up any grime or spills that may have been left on the cabinets during cooking every day for the week
- Wash drawer fronts
- Clean cabinet handles and knobs
- Clean the inside of your cabinets by vacuuming.
- Take all of your dinnerware, appliances, or pantry items off the shelves. Wipe each shelf down one at a time
Every other Month:
- Take out any appliances that are not in use and clean the sides of all cabinets. It's amazing how much dirt and food can build up on the sides and bottoms of cabinets next to your refrigerator and stove.
The Best Cleaning Agents
You may have a variety of multipurpose cleaners or, right now, COVID-19, strong-duty cleaners such as bleach. But do you know which cleaners are best for your kitchen cabinets? Some cabinets are sensitive to harsh cleaners. The DIY Network suggests a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle for wood cabinets. After the mixture has been mixed, spray it onto your cabinets. Let it sit for at least two minutes before wiping clean with a microfiber cloth. To cut through grease and grime, you can add a few drops of liquid dishwashing detergent.
Kansas Master Cabinet Refinishing can refinish your kitchen cabinets if they have seen better days. The refinishing process takes less than one week and is affordable. It won't break the bank and you can continue to use your kitchen throughout the process. Here's how it works in two simple steps if you are still skeptical.
The first two to three days will be spent in your kitchen coating the cabinets frames. Tape off the entire kitchen and take out all drawers and cabinet doors. Once that is done, we wash, hand-sand, and prime the cabinets. We also repair any blemishes and caulk the cabinets.
Next, we will prepare the drawer fronts and doors in our shop to give them a furniture-grade finish. Three coats of acrylic coatings will be applied to each piece in our contaminant-free spraying booth.
After the work is complete, we return to your kitchen to install the drawer fronts and doors, as well any knobs or handles you have purchased.
