Heritage Custom Cabinetry recommends the following cleaning
& care for your fine cabinetry:
Wood Stain and Paint Finishes
Heritage specifies only the finest woods, finishing them
with durable industrial coatings designed to have a high degree
of resistance to normal household products.

the surfaces dry.
Never allow water to puddle on the inside floor of a cabinet,
penetrate down into the natural wood below an unsealed countertop,

as around the sink cabinet.

Do not use any polishes that contain silicone or a high concentration
of waxes on your wood cabinetry. Harsh detergents, ammonia
solutions and cleaners with abrasives should never be used
on fine cabinetry.
