Cleaning frames and panels
You may not realize it, but a dirty frame can cause your door to jam. That means that you’ll have to resort to getting assistance from another person in order for the door to open and close properly. This is something that could happen over time if you don’t take care of those pesky little bits of debris on your frames now! Stop slacking off with maintenance now so this doesn’t become an issue later down the road.
If you want your door to stand out, then make sure it has a bright shine! You can do this by wiping it clean with a dry cloth and buffing it to bring back its luster. Don’t ever use any strong cleaning agents like bleach or ammonia because these will damage the finish on your door handles, knockers, hinges etc., which may even require them being replaced altogether.
Take care of the glazing
To keep your home looking fresh and new, it’s important to get the small panes of glass in your doors cleaned regularly. This is a quick process that can be done with just some warm water on a soft cloth or traditional window cleaner if needed. Once you’ve removed any dirt from these surfaces, finish up by using some glass cleaner for an extra shine!
