Cleaning commercial custom cabinets requires a systematic approach to ensure they are properly maintained.

Here are some tips for cleaning commercial cabinets:

  1. Remove Contents: Before you start cleaning, remove all items from the cabinets. This allows you to clean the interior thoroughly and prevents any cleaning agents from coming into contact with stored items.
  2. Dust Removal: Begin by dusting the cabinets, both inside and outside. Use a soft, dry cloth or a duster to remove dust and loose debris. This step helps prevent scratching when you move on to wet cleaning.
  3. Use the Right Cleaning Solution:
    • For wood cabinets: Mix a mild detergent or wood cleaner with warm water. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the finish.
  4. Spot Test: Before applying any cleaning solution to the entire surface, perform a spot test in an inconspicuous area to ensure that it won’t cause any damage to the material.
  5. Wipe Surfaces: Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the cleaning solution and gently wipe down the cabinet surfaces. Pay attention to areas with built-up grime or stains. For stubborn stains, you may need to apply a bit more pressure, but avoid scrubbing too hard to prevent surface damage.
  6. Dry Thoroughly: After cleaning, use a dry, clean cloth to wipe down the cabinets and remove any excess moisture. This step helps prevent water damage and ensures a streak-free finish.
  7. Clean Hardware: If your cabinets have handles, knobs, or other hardware, clean them separately. Use an appropriate cleaner for the material of the hardware, and reattach them once they are dry.
  8. Maintain Regularly: Establish a regular cleaning schedule to prevent the accumulation of dirt and grime. Regular maintenance will also make cleaning easier each time.
  9. Consider Sealants or Polishes: Depending on the material of your custom cabinets, consider using a sealant or polish to protect the surface and enhance its appearance. Make sure the product is suitable for the specific type of cabinet material.
  10. Professional Cleaning: For heavily soiled cabinets or those in high-traffic areas, it may be worthwhile to hire professional cleaners who have the expertise and equipment to tackle tougher cleaning challenges.

Remember, always follow the manufacturer’s care instructions for your specific type of cabinet material to avoid damaging the finish or surface. Contact MAC today for more information!
