The interiors of the Midland Cabinets are surfaced with a Maple grained print that resists most stains, scuffs, and mars.
Midland hardwood exteriors have a high quality finish on the wood that brings out its full beauty. We recommend cleaning the interior and exterior of your cabinets once a month with a clean damp sponge or cloth. If a spill occurs, it is important to clean up the spill and dry the surface right away. A spill left unattended will soak through the Maple print and cause damage. We do not recommend using paper towels because of their abrasiveness. To remove food residue or grease, use clean suds with a mild soap and water mixture. Do not use cleaners that have any abrasive additive, bleach or ammonia. These cleaners will cause damage to your cabinet finish. Dishcloths used for other cleaning should never be used as they could contain remnants of harsh chemicals or grease. Following cleaning, wipe all excess moisture off the cabinet fronts and door backs.
The most common form of damage done to cabinetry during normal maintenance is over scrubbing of the finishes, especially the edge profiles. Excess moisture can damage any cabinet finish. Areas near the sink, dishwasher, range, oven and baseboards are the most susceptible. Keep these areas dry. Midland cabinets have a high quality varnish finish and waxing is not necessary. Furniture polish may be used if waxing is preferred. Make sure to wipe off any excess polish to avoid build-up.
Colors of all products change as they age. Various wood species will react in different ways depending on their exposure to the sun as well as the environment they are located in.
All finishes are glossier when freshly finished. The gloss level will tone down after approximately 6 months, depending on the environmental exposure.
Cabinet Door Backs
Door backs will not be finished to the same level of artistic detail as the front. They will have the same blending color and durability as the front of the door.
