Humidity Effects: In order to enjoy your cabinets for years to come, it is important to keep the temperature and humidity levels in your home stable. Very dry or very humid conditions will cause the wood to expand or contract, especially with mitered doors. Low humidity will cause wood to shrink, typically occurring in winter months. High Humidity will cause expansion in the wood, this typically occurs in summer months.
The optimal conditions for your cabinets occur with the humidity levels that are between 35%-50%. Anything below 20% or above 80% needs to be avoided. Using a humidifier or turning on the air conditioner will help avoid these extreme condition. It is important to keep temperatures and humidity levels stable in your home.
Expansion and Contraction of wood whit humidity and temperature changes is the nature of wood and is not a reason for replacement. In most cases, once the environment has been controlled for a prolonged period of time, the effects of the humidity will disappear.
