* Do not use ammonia or ammonia based cleaner
* Do not use harsh abrasives such as steel wool, scouring pads or detergents

WOOD DOORS

* Recommended cleaner is a mild soap and water using a non-abrasive cloth
* Dry water off immediately using a lint free cloth
* More difficult stains can be removed by using neutral type cleaners or weak alkaloid type cleaners
* Do not use furniture polish or wax as the wax build up will mar the finish

 

GLASS OR INSERTS
* Ammonia based cleaners can damage the surrounding door, so it is recommended that a mild vinegar solution is used to clean
glass or insert panels
* Any cleaner should be removed from the door immediately, followed by wiping with a water-absorbed cloth and dried with
a lint free cloth
 


THERMOFOIL OR LAMINATE DOORS

* Recommended cleaning is wiping with a damp/water-absorbed cloth
* More difficult stains can be removed by using neutral type cleaners or weak alkaloid type cleaners

 

Do not use:
* Harsh abrasives or detergents (i.e steel wool, scouring pads)
* Ammonia based cleaner
* Silicone polishes or wax paste (wax build-up, attracts dust and alters the sheen)

 

CAUTION:
* Excess moisture can damage any cabinet finish; areas near the sink range, dishwasher, oven and baseboards are the most susceptible. Keep these surfaces dry.

 

 

 


AyA's warranty will be voided if the cabinet care guidelines are not followed properly.

 

SELF CLEANING OVENS
* Self cleaning ovens generate immense heat, resulting in potential damage to any cabinetry
* AyA recommends removing all adjacent doors or drawers prior to using the self clean function, the drawers can be easily removed by either lifting up and out, or using the release mechanism at the bottom of the drawer box, the doors can released by pushing forward on the small knob at the back of the hinge.

 

HEAT-PRODUCING APPLIANCES
* Avoid mounting small appliances (i.e coffee makers & toaster ovens) beneath cabinets, as excess heat & moisture can damage cabinets.
* Stovetop heights should be adjusted to sit 1/2" above the countertop as to avoid damage from heat radiating from the element.
