Cleaning, Care & Maintenance

Our Schulte wire closet systems have a specially formulated, baked-on epoxy coating which provides a durable, easy-gliding finish. Cleaning is seldom needed as the open decking doesn’t accumulate dust the way solid surfaces can; spills can be washed off with a non-abrasive household cleaner. Shoe scuffs on closet poles can be removed using a cloth dampened with a spot of mineral spirits.

Proper care of your new closets will help you get the most out of them. Everyday cleaning should be done with mild soap and warm water or a mild household all-purpose spray cleaner. Use only enough moisture to get the job done; excessive moisture or soaking can cause the wood to swell and ultimately damage your closet. For scuffs that are resistant to water based cleaners, a cloth dampened with a spot of mineral spirits will often do the trick; however, the continued use of solvent cleaners is not recommended. Never use acidic or alkaline cleaners, abrasive cleaners, or bleach.

Should a piece of an Orderly Quarters organizational system ever be significantly damaged, it may be possible to simply replace the damaged part. Give us a call and we’d be happy to explore possible remedies.
