Gloss kitchen cleaning advice: Learn the best cleaning products and techniques for keeping your gloss kitchen hygienic, polished and beautiful.
Although contemporary kitchen cabinets with a sleek, high-gloss finish look stunning, they tend to highlight smudges and fingerprints. Consequently, keeping the surfaces blemish-free against reflected light is a challenge.
Cleaning High Gloss Acrylic Cabinetry: Typically the high-gloss acrylic surface is covered with a protective film from the manufacturer. Remove the film after all cabinet installation is complete. Use fingernail to remove, not sharp objects. Safely remove any adhesive near the edges with mineral spirits.
I have new Ikea high gloss white abstrakt kitchen cabinets. Although I love the look of my new kitchen, I have two problems that are making me insane. First, it looks as if the contractor left a layer of white caulking or grout over one of the cabinets, and I don’t know how to take it off.
Anyone else got high gloss wood looking kitchen cupboards? Do you have a quick easy way to clean them? Have been wiping them over with diluted morning fresh & warm water (very wrung out) & have been ok up till now but in certain light now you can see fingerprints & smudges all over.
When you choose painted Cleaning Gloss Kitchen Cabinets, they will usually be assembled with materials that accept and hold paint well, such as poplar, veneered plywood or MDF. The key is having a nice, flat surface, free of knots and heavy grain patterns. Some cabinet manufacturers perform all the finishing work on their cabinets in-house. At Canyon Creek, an elaborate system of spray booths, ovens and an overhead drying line make it possible to finish hundreds of cabinets a day. Cabinets leave the plant boxed and ready for installation.
The kind of paint used on your Cleaning Gloss Kitchen Cabinets will impact how they look, how they wear, how much they chip and whether they are resistant to water. When purchasing a stock or semi-custom cabinet, ask what kind of paint is used and if there are other options. There are many paint options: oil- or water-based paints that may or may not include alkyd resins to help with curing, and even solid-body conversion varnishes. Having an extended conversation about the options and their impacts (off-gassing, longevity etc.) might be helpful. Earlier this year I looked into using a zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint on some custom cabinets, but received less-than-positive feedback from the paint shop about using it. Using a low-VOC paint instead yielded good results. Paint companies are constantly working on formulating coatings with fewer VOCs, and as time goes on, they will only get better, so look at all of your options.
