Painting your wooden cabinets in your kitchen, bathroom or storage area is a great way to give a space a makeover without breaking your budget. After painting your cabinets, you have to maintain them with periodic cleaning. Handyman Connection can help you with painting services in Edmonton, including painted cabinets. Here are some tips to keep your painted cabinets looking beautiful for years.
Replacing your entire kitchen or bathroom with a new set of quality cabinets can be expensive, so many homeowners opt for professional painting services. The painting process for kitchen cabinets can be extensive since you have to take them apart, remove the hardware, sand them and prep them for paint.
Instead of doing it yourself, you can connect with the contractors at Handyman Connection to get you the best results for your painted cabinets. We can remove the cabinet doors, prepare the surfaces, paint the cabinets and put them back together to give your kitchen or bathroom a new look. We can also give you suggestions on types of paint to use and shades that would look best with your style.
Painted kitchen cabinets should be spot cleaned or wiped down gently at least once a week so they don’t lose their lustre. You also have to be careful about how you clean your cabinets so you don’t remove or damage the painted surface.
Most cabinets will have to be wiped down for light splatters and dust once a week. Use a soft cloth that is dampened to remove any stains or dust. Microfibre towels are perfect for painted cabinet cleaning. Then, dry the cabinets off with a paper towel.
If your cabinets have more stubborn stains or grease on them, you need to be a little more aggressive in your cleaning while still being careful not to damage the surface paint. A good cleaning option for grease removal is dish soap. You can combine dish soap with warm water and dampen your soft cloth to clean.
Wipe off the grease stains with the cloth using a circular motion until the debris loosens and melts away. After cleaning off the grease or other stains, take another cloth dampened with non-soapy water and wipe off any remaining soap suds or residue. Dry off the cabinets when you are finished.
Heavy grease and set-on stains caked on your cabinets may need a stronger cleaning solution to completely remove them. You can mix one part vinegar with two parts warm water and a bit of baking soda to make a gentle but powerful cleaning formula. You can also add some dish soap to make it more effective.
Then, use a cloth dampened with the solution and wipe away the stains. You can also make the solution for a spray bottle, spray the stains and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping the residue away with a cloth. Make sure you wipe the cabinets off and dry them completely when you are done cleaning.
If you are tired of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, we can help refresh them with a new coat of gorgeous paint. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for an entire kitchen remodel, you can call Handyman Connection for painting services in Edmonton for your cabinets and trim.
