Having quality cupboards and storage in your home is an absolute necessity. Not only do cupboards act as a design feature, but they are essential in making the most of the space available to you. Whether it’s’ kitchen cabinets or bedroom cupboards, investing in your dream cupboards can come with a hefty price tag. It is for this reason that you should always put an effort into properly maintaining your cupboards and looking after your investment.

As experts in cabinetry and built-in cupboards in Durban, Cupboard Value provides some practical advice on how to maintain your cupboards and extend their lifespans.

Maintaining your Cupboards

Clean Regularly

Wiping your cupboards down with a damp cloth should be part of your regular cleaning routine. This will assist in removing the build-up of dust and dirt ad keep your cupboards looking good.

Avoid Harsh Cleaning Products

Wooden cabinets and cupboards do not require extreme cleaning products in order for them to be cleaned properly. Even natural products will do. Use a soft cloth to avoid any scratches on the surface of the cupboards.

Remove Stains and Grimes

The sooner you attempt to remove a stain from any surface, the more likely it is to come out. As soon as you notice any sort of stains, grime, or mold on your cupboards, make an effort to deal with them immediately.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

If you position your cupboards in direct sunlight, you may find that they will begin to fade and warp slightly over time. You may want to consider positioning them in such a way so that they do not receive harsh amounts of natural sunlight.

Keep them Dry

Dampness and any sort of wood are never a good combination. In Durban, we already have to deal with extreme levels of humidity, so it is important to keep your cupboards as dry as possible. This means drying them with a dry cloth after cleaning them and attending to any spills as soon as possible.
