Modular kitchen - maintenance

In order to maintain your modular kitchen, you should first get it in functional order.
Your first step:

Is to make sure the kitchen is clean. Take a weekend or day where you have the time to really clean your kitchen the way you need to, in order to make maintenance easier. Scrub floors, counter tops, appliances and clean out your refrigerator, throwing away old and moldy food.
Second step:
After you have cleaned the kitchen the way that you like, it is time to work on organization.
It is also a good idea to make sure that items that go together are close in proximity.
For example, coffee and coffee filters should be close to the coffee maker and/or espresso machine. You may soon figure out that you need additional storage or counter space for your items.
Third step:
After initial organization, all you need to do is maintain things the way that you have them set up. This way nothing becomes overwhelming and your cleaning should take more than 5 to 10 minutes each time.
Pre-wash items and place them directly in the dishwasher, or wash items as soon as you are done with them.
Fourth step:
Your kitchen table and counter tops are usually pretty easy to clean off. You will probably need to wipe down countertops and tables after meals to clean up and spills or crumbs that can attract bugs and bacteria. It is also important to wipe down countertops and tables used before and after food preparation. Not only will this reduce overall cleaning time, but will also help protect your family against disease.

Fifth step:
Wiping down your stove tops should be a quick daily task and a good practice to prevent food particles from becoming backed up and stuck on your stove. If possible, wipe down the stove top after cooking each meal.
Sixth step:
Depending on the style of your cabinets, you may want to take 2-3 minutes each day to wipe down your cabinets. We usually forget that the residue from cooking, things spilled, and stains left by children and pets often take a toll on your cabinets. Taking a minute or two to simply wipe down cabinets can keep your kitchen looking new and put off the need for replacing or repainting cabinets.

Hope these tips are useful....
