Care and Warranty of your custom wood cabinetry
Your cabinetry has been constructed from carefully selected quality hardwoods. Because imperfections are part of the natural beauty of hardwood, and not the result of the manufacturing of your cabinets, your warranty cannot cover differences in colour, grain and natural variations. Nor can it cover possible differences in colour when adding new cabinetry to old. We encourage you to enjoy the natural beauty of solid wood and appreciate those characteristics that give it personality.
Johnson Woodworks warrants to the original consumer purchaser only that all products manufactured or supplied by the warrantor will be free form defects in material and workmanship under normal use use for your lifetime as long as you won the cabinetry for all warranted products.
Care for Wood Surfaces
Clients often ask now to take case of their new cabinetry. Wood reacts to environmental changes, such as moisture, temperature and light. Johnson Woodworks cabinetry is designed for use inside the home or other buildings and not intended for outdoor applications. Once your cabinets have been installed, wipe down all exteriors with a dam cloth to remove dust. Wood cabinetry finishes may be cleaned and protected by using any cleaning polish. Johnson Woodworks recommends an emulsion-type cleaner (such as Murphy's Oil Soap), that are formulated without wax, petroleum solvents or silicones. The extended use of wax polishes can result in a wax film buildup, while the use of silicone polishes and harm the cabinet's finish.
Care and Cleaning of Glass Door Inserts
If your kitchen contains cabinetry accented with glass doors, a few precautions are necessary. Apply glass cleaner to a towel, not directly to the glass. Avoid cleaner contact with lead, white-, gold- or copper-clad mullions. Caned glass inserts may be gently buffed with 0000 steel wool, as this will not scratch glass. Avoid steel wool buffing of joints on gold-, copper- or white-clad mullions, as this will remove the coating.
Care and Cleaning of Mirrors
Cleaner should always be applied to a cloth, not directly to the mirror, and should not be allowed to run or drip into the base trim. Avoid cleaners that contain sodium hydrochloride, phosphoric acid or sulphur (found in products to prevent mildew and fungus). Do not use abrasives.
Care for Granite Surfaces
Clean with a soapy cloth, using mild dish soap and hot water only. Some stones, especially darker colours, require surface towel drying after washing to avoid showing streaks. The use of vinegar, ammonia, lemon, orange, household chemicals, acid or solvents may damage the surface or granite sealer over time. To remove stubborn sticky materials, like glue, or any product that has hardened, use a razor blade tip or 000 fine grade steel wool.
Care for Quartz Surfaces
If needed, use a non-abrasive, household cleaners such as Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, or any gel cleaner. Abrasive cleaners will dull the surface's shine. To remove adhered material such as: food or nail polish, first scrape away the excess material with a plastic putty knife and then clean the surface with a damp cloth to remove marks or any residual dirt.
Care and Cleaning of Marble
Clean with a cloth and hot water only. Buff dry with a cotton cloth or chamois. Using a mild soap occasionally for cleaning marble won't harm the stone, but consistent use will dull the surface. Hard water will leave calcium deposits in the surface. DO NOT use vinegar, ammonia, lemon, orange, household chemicals, acids or solvents for cleaning marble.
