Super practical cabinet maintenance experience

- 2021-08-05-

People say "it is difficult to install cabinets, and it is even more difficult to maintain cabinets". The difficulty lies in not understanding the cabinets. When installing cabinets, I worry about buying inferior goods, and I am afraid that I can buy good goods but at a price loss. In fact, it takes a while to understand these things, and it is not difficult to solve at all. Maintenance is easier. My experience is to put it simply, cleaning. When cleaning is done, maintenance is done. The cleanliness of the cabinets must not be ambiguous. This is related to the physical and mental health of the family. Kitchen hardware and sinks are the key points. Especially the sink, which is easy for many people to ignore. Dirty sinks are easy to breed germs. This is one of the root causes of health problems in many families.

Maintenance and cleaning of kitchen hardware:

In principle, all hardware should be kept clean and dry. If it gets wet, it should be wiped dry in time to prevent water marks or rust. For dumpling chains and slide rails, it is best to add lubricant regularly to ensure smooth opening and closing of the parts. Do not hang heavy or wet objects on the handle. If it is loose, you can adjust the screws on the back. When the door panels are uneven or loose, research, adjust and tighten them in time. 

The following points should be noted:

1. Avoid sprinkling salt, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and other condiments directly on the hardware. If it happens accidentally, wipe it off immediately;

2. The door hinges should be oiled regularly to keep opening/closing freely and to prevent rusting due to moisture;

3. When opening/closing the drawer, avoid excessive force to prevent the slide rail from falling out or being hit;

4. For large hardware such as Gaoshenglan and Zhuanlan, pay attention to the direction of rotation and stretching, and avoid using dead force.

Maintenance and cleaning of cabinet sink:

1. When cleaning the stainless steel sink, do not use hard steel wire balls, chemical agents or steel brushes. Use soft towels, soft cloth with water or neutral detergent, otherwise it will cause scratches or erosion.

2. When cleaning sinks of other materials, you can use detergent or soapy water to remove greasy and keep the sink clean. At the same time, avoid using hard cleaning tools. Every time you clean the sink, the neck end of the tube behind the filter box should be cleaned together to avoid long-term accumulation of grease. After long-term use, grease will accumulate in the sink pipe and it is not easy to clean. In this case, you can pour some kitchen cleaners in the sink, and then rinse with hot water, and then rinse with cold water for a long time.

In fact, when I first started, I didn't pay attention to the maintenance of the cabinets, but time will always remind you of overlooked problems. Just learn while watching, I collected a lot of useful cabinet maintenance knowledge and life tips from China Cabinet. Here I repost some information about cabinet maintenance from China Cabinet Network for your reference:

"1. Avoid direct contact with hot pots and hot pots when in use, preferably on a pot rack;

2. Avoid hitting the countertops and door panels with sharp objects to avoid scratches;

3. Avoid placing dyes or hair dyes directly on the countertops; chemical substances have corrosive effects on the countertops of many materials. For example, the stainless steel countertops may rust if they are exposed to salt. Therefore, you should also avoid placing soy sauce bottles and other items directly. On the countertop; artificial board cabinets should avoid water stains staying on the countertop for a long time.

4. The door panels and countertops of cabinets use different cleaning methods according to different materials (artificial stone, fireproof board, stainless steel, natural stone, log, etc.). "
