How To Maintain Your Iron Doors

Proper maintenance for your iron door is important.  While iron doors are extremely durable and low-maintenance, they still need regular care.  By spending a few minutes each month to maintain your iron doors, you can keep them looking new and working properly for years to come. 

How To Maintain Your Iron Doors

Here are several monthly maintenance tips for your iron doors:

Keep your doors clean

Regularly cleaning your doors is important.  By cleaning your doors, you get rid of any dirt or grime that may build up on your door.  If left untreated, it can damage the door’s finish.  By spending a few minutes cleaning the door, you can keep it looking as good as new.    

Check your doors regularly for any damage  

While you probably use your door every day, chances are that you don’t look it over closely.  Every month, take a few minutes to examine your entire door.  Make sure there are no rusted or damaged parts.  If your iron door has windows, check them to make sure they aren’t broken. 

By spending a few minutes every month looking over your doors, you can catch small problems before they become bigger ones and avoid expensive repairs. 

Check the hinges on your door

In addition to checking your door every month, take a look at the hinges.  Misaligned or damaged hinges can keep the door from working properly.  Over time, these hinges may cause serious damage to your door or door frame. 

Make sure your hinges are working smoothly and that your door is properly aligned.  If the door sticks when opening or closing, it might need to be adjusted.  Also, make sure to lubricate your hinges at least every six months.
