Your choice of Bertch cabinets for your new kitchen or Bath is a wise decision and a reflection of your good taste. With proper care, your Bertch Cabinets will deliver years of beauty, enjoyment and convenience.
As with any product constructed of wood, a few moments of care and a little common sense can go a long way in keeping your new cabinets looking their best. Here are a few simple suggestions to make your cabinet care easier.
Dust cabinets frequently with a soft lint-free cloth. You can dampen the cloth slightly with water or a spray-type dust remover.
Clean spills immediately. Use a clean cloth and mild soap if necessary. Wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
There are a number of products available for your wood cleaning needs. Use a clean cloth and mild soap if necessary. Wipe dry with a clean soft cloth.
We recommend that you wash and polish cabinets once or twice each year. Use a light coat of quality furniture polish.
Never use detergents, soap pads, or steel wool on your cabinetry. These harsh abrasives will mar the wood finish.
Additionally, we recommend that you avoid the use of paste wax and polishes that contain silicone; the wax build up is difficult to remove and will leave a residue that attracts dust.
3D LAMINATE – MELAMINE
Periodically clean the interior and exterior surfaces of the door using a damp, soft cloth. Wipe dry with a clean soft cloth if necessary.
GLASS DOORS & MIRRORS
You can use any commercial glass cleaner to clean the glass. Additionally, the glass can be cleaned while mounted on the door, or can be removed for better access.
While cleaning mounted glass, be careful not to damage the finish of the door and cabinet parts while cleaning. To remove the glass panel, carefully loosen the screws and lift panel out. However, all glass is fragile so handle carefully.
Do not spray glass cleaner directly onto glass or cabinet parts. Glass cleaner seeping into areas behind the mullions may discolor the wood. Instead, spray a small amount of cleaner onto a lint-free cloth or paper towel, then wipe the glass.
