If left untreated, it will cause safety problems and resulting in anything from pinched fingers.
Medical cabinet repair- Problems & Solutions
- One of the drawers is stuck, making it difficult to open.
Repairing sticky drawers is easy to DIY. After removing the drawer, clean the slide rails and cabinet slide rails to make them completely dry, and then spray lubricants such as WD-40 on both. Reinstall the drawer on the track. If the slide rail is damaged, you can purchase a replacement for the drawer slide rail that is easy to install at a hardware store.
- Cabinet doors won’t stay closed.
To repair a swinging cabinet door, tighten the loose screws to make the hinges more secure. If it does not resolve the problem, the cabinet may not be on a flat surface and may need to be repositioned.
- The cabinet hinge screws do not stay in place because the screw holes have been removed.
There are some standard solutions. First, try removing the hardware. Fill the gap with a wooden toothpick or matchstick, glue it in place, and then cut off the excess height with a utility knife. Replace the hardware as you usually would. A more rigorous solution is to install a repair plate or use expandable anchors instead of traditional screws. Finally, if you still cannot use the existing holes, reposition the hinges just one inch from their original position.
- The finish of the medicine cabinet is worn or damaged.
Use a wooden filler rod to check for small debris that matches the color of the cabinet. If the damage is more severe, high-quality wood cabinets can be polished and recolored to remove scratches, scuffs, and other signs of wear. If the surface of the cabinet is a cheap type of material, try spraying. Rough roofing (such as chalk paint) is excellent for hiding uneven surfaces. The cabinet contains all the kits that can be quickly decreased, painted, and satin-finished.
- The cabinet doors or drawers rattle when closed.
Easy-to-use door and drawer bumpers are available. Although they are designed to be “peel and stick” protection, some officers prefer to screw them into place for a firmer grip. Choose from various thicknesses to find a thickness that matches other cabinet types.
- The bottom of the drawer is sagging.
Use wood glue to stick it to 1/4-inch plywood for reinforcement, cut it into a particular shape, and repair the loose drawer.
- The cabinet hardware does not look good.
Clean the hardware first, then polish it with a metal polish. If you are still not satisfied with the appearance, try to loosen the screws and spray paint. The most pricey solution is to replace the hardware completely. This is a way to give your office a modern look. This method is more expensive but cheaper than ordering new cabinets.
Cabinet refinish- DIY
Do you know that patch of peeled paint, exposed rusting metal, muck, and bacteria in the medicine cabinet? Well, that is what you have to repair in your office. We will explain in the following simple steps.
STEP 1- Sand Through the Muck and Rust
You have to start overly optimistic regarding this sanding step. Arm yourself with sheets of sandpaper (wet or dry) and a sanding sponge or broke out the power vibrating sander and ground through the paint and metal with vigor. It will take a while to sand the rust damage out of the metal surface.
Manually sanding the cabinets sliding mirror channels is arduous and gross. Although you will be able to use the power sander on the cabinet’s back and top surfaces, the sides required more manual sanding. The old paint needed to be roughed-up to be ready for applying primer.
STEP 2- Prepare Cabinet for Primer Coat
thoroughly rinse and dry all interior cabinet surfaces, especially the mirror channels. The cabinet should be taped off with newspaper and masking tape to protect the surrounding areas you do not want to get a primer on.
STEP 3- Spray on Primer Coat
chose to apply a primer coat to fill in the rust-damaged metal areas, provide some rust protection, and adhere to the final coat of paint. For ventilation, open the office window and used a stand-up fan. You will realize how stinky spray painting is -even with ventilation. Additionally, you can put on a painter’s respirator to stay in the room.
Note that primer only creates a semi-smooth surface. To do an outstanding paint job, you have to wet sand all of the primed surfaces. Let the primer coat dry overnight.
STEP 4- Spray on Final Paint Coat
Wipe the primed surfaces down with a damp rag to remove dust and loose primer particles, then dried the surfaces. Using the same ventilation and safety methods in STEP-3, apply the paint heavily to smooth out the semi-smooth primer surface. Let the paint dry for about 6-hours. You can also hire a cabinet repair service from your area.
