You want to reface cabinets. At the same time, you know these kinds of projects can impact the environment and you want to take an approach that’s earth-friendly.
At N-Hance®, we offer the best of both worlds. We can give your cabinets a whole new look and feel, all in a way that’s sustainable. At our company, we care deeply about the environment and want to protect it, all while giving our customers a quality product and an outcome they love. We’re able to achieve that in a variety of ways, including by:
Conserving Existing Resources
When you hire us to reface cabinets, instead of replacing them completely, N-Hance is able to transform the aesthetics of your space, while also conserving natural resources. The doors, drawers, and side panels of your cabinets are replaced, while the original cabinet boxes are kept instead of ending up in a landfill.
Essentially, we’re working with what’s already there, renewing it in the process, and making less of an impact on the environment, as a result. Since less of the original cabinets are replaced, we’re also using fewer fossil fuels to transport products.
Sourcing in an Environmentally Friendly Way
The United States is one of the world’s largest consumers of commercially harvested wood, using a staggering 27%. Much of this wood is harvested in a way that’s simply not sustainable, negatively impacting our forests and their ecosystems in the process.
At N-Hance, we do things differently. We want to minimize our impact with a more conscientious approach and do so by using wood that has already been harvested or buying wood from sources that harvest in an environmentally responsible manner. This means our forest ecosystems remain healthier, while you’re getting an environmentally friendly solution to reface your kitchen or bath cabinets.
Reducing Volatile Organic Compounds When We Reface Cabinets
When N-Hance refaces cabinets, we use high-performance, water-based polyurethane finishes with fewer Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). By reducing VOCs in our products, we are also reducing dangerous compounds that enter the atmosphere and have been found to be related to the reduction of the earth’s ozone. VOCs are emitted by a wide array of products including paints, lacquers and paint strippers.
N-Hance is Not Only Healthier for the Planet, But Your Home
With our approach, we’ll mask and drape the job site to ensure minimal disruption and mess in the rest of your home. We’ll also sweep up and vacuum before we begin work to ensure the cleanest indoor environment possible. This even includes removing and clearing out vents to get rid of any dust that might be inside that could stick to finishes as they’re drying.
Once our cabinet refacing work is underway, our team doesn’t produce a lot of dust, so your home won’t be filled with particles that can trigger allergies or cause coughing. Sanding dust is particularly dangerous because the very fine particle sizes produced can become permanently trapped in the lungs, potentially causing health issues.
Another way we’re making homes healthier with the way we reface cabinets is with our new Lightspeed Plus™ anti-microbial U.V. finish. Lightspeed Plus reduces bacteria growth by 99 percent and effectively inhibits the growth of dangerous microbes, such as E. Coli, Staph and other harmful bacteria.*
When you hire N-Hance to reface your cabinets, you can feel good about your decision. You’re working with a company that always chooses the path of conservation, saving resources, and reducing the use of fossil fuels and greenhouse gasses, all while keeping your family healthier.
