Start Spring Cleaning with the Outside of Your Kitchen Cabinets

March 6, 2015

Seeing that spring is finally approaching in Northeastern Ohio, it's about time to consider spring cleaning. What better place to begin than in your kitchen? This annual task might seem daunting, but N-Hance Wood Renewal of Summit County, who specializes in the refinishing of hardwood floors and kitchen cabinets, has attempted to help educate the local consumers how to get their kitchen cabinets appearing like new again. We care about our community and have been making cabinets appear like new in the Akron Metropolitan area for 6 years.  Our basic renewal service, which refreshes your dull and worn cabinets to their original color & luster is the perfect spring cleaning project for your kitchen.


“Your kitchen is definitely the heart of your home. The cabinets are the most visual component of your kitchen, so when they appear dull, it can make your whole kitchen look shabby,” said Bill Raeder, owner of N-Hance Wood Renewal of Summit County. “Often, it takes only a basic renewal to give them a whole new look. Just the other day, we made a kitchen appear like new in Green in one day.”


The following do-it-yourself techniques from the experts at N-Hance Wood Renewal of Summit County will help keep kitchen cabinets in their best condition.

Basic Cabinet Care and Cleaning 

  • For regular dusting, dampen a microfiber cloth and lightly wipe your cabinet door.
  • If you have to clean cabinet hardware, take them off from cabinet doors and drawers so as to protect wood surfaces from harsh chemicals.        
  • For minor buildup on the kitchen cabinets, clean with a microfiber cloth dipped in vinegar & water.


Avoid these Damaging Elements

  • Water and Grease: Water and grease may seem harmless, but over time they can eventually break down the protective coating and the finish may start flaking away from the wood surface. Never allow water to remain on your cabinets. Quickly remove it with a towel by blotting, not wiping.
  • Damp Towels: Avoid draping a wet towel over your cabinet doors. This traps the moisture and will eventually penetrate through the finish. Flaking and cracking will most likely happen if towels aren't removed.
  • Steam: Steam from your dishwasher or shower may also permeate through a finish, leading to cracking, discoloration and peeling. To help prevent steam damage, wipe down wet surfaces and clean regularly.

"I hated the color of my cabinets. They were a real light Oak color, and I wanted something rich looking that would complement my new granite countertop. I sampled different colors with Nhance, and came up with a new cherry color that is perfect."
