Top Tips for Maintaining Your Doors

Last week we focused on Windows and the importance of maintaining them properly. In-line with this we are now going to shift our focus to doors and why looking after them is just as important as looking after your windows.

Doors are vital to your property in a number of ways from ensuring your home is safe and secure to saving energy thanks to their fantastic energy efficiency qualities. Doors need to be looked after in order to function properly and therefore in this week’s blog we are going to look at some top tips when it comes to maintaining your doors at home in order to prolong their lifespan.

Check the Hardware

If your door is becoming stiff, hard to open and the handle often gets stuck it is time to check your hardware. This could be due to damage, wear and tear or simply becoming outdated and therefore needing to be replaced. It is vital you fix this asap as it can become a huge security issue for your home that potential intruders may be able to use to gain access to your property.

Clean the Door Regularly

Cleaning your doors regularly will keep them in tip top shape and get rid of any dirt that may cause damage, corrosion or block up the locking mechanism. Whilst cleaning, it also won’t do any harm if you want to oil the mechanical parts of the door in order to keep them working smoothly.

Check the Seals

If you can feel a draught coming through your door then you may have a leaky seal! It is very important that you check the rubber lining that runs alongside your door as well as the bottom and top. If you find a broken seal get it fixed and you will soon see a difference in your energy usage and energy bills.

These are just a few simple tips that can go a long way when it comes to maintaining your doors. We hope you found this blog helpful.
