Care and Cleaning

For your Wood Doors and Cabinet Surfaces

The factory-applied Duraguard topcoat offers the utmost protection for kitchen cabinet applications and provides superior chemical and common kitchen stain resistance while maintaining color and sheen. Duraguard topcoat requires minimal care and cleaning. We recommend periodic cleaning with a mild detergent and water solution to remove dirt, dust and grease that buildup with routine usage. Dampen a soft, non-abrasive cloth and wipe entire exterior surface of cabinetry and dry with a soft cloth. Never use a wet cloth that allows water to run down the cabinetry and always dry cabinetry immediately if water is spilled onto the surface.

Care should be taken not to use abrasive cleaners, ammonia or any other type of harsh chemical. These cleaning agents may cause discoloration, scratching, marring, and dulling of the finish. We also discourage use of furniture polishes and waxes on finished cabinetry. Furniture polishes alter the original sheen level and may leave a film on the surface that attracts the dust and dirt. Theses polishes may also cause an irregular or blotchy appearance because they are unable to stand up to many common kitchen stains.

For your NRS Decorative Laminate Veneer (DLV) doors and cabinet surfaces

DLV doors , drawers, and cabinet surfaces can be cleaned using a mild non-abrasive detergent and damp sponge or cloth. Never saturate DLV products with water or other liquids.

Proven Durability of NRS DLV Products
Decorative laminate Veneer (DLV) products have been tested and certified by the Kitchen Cabinet
Manufacturing Association.

• Heat Resistance: DLV products have been subjected to heat over 200 degrees and showed no evidence of delamination. Due to high heat given off by self cleaning ovens, we recommend that you open your cabinet doors and remove drawers that are beside or above your oven when in self clean operation.

• Ultra Violet Exposure: DLV materials are not susceptible to color changes typically associated with UV exposure. Under normal lighting conditions DLV products will change very little in color or tone.
