How to Clean and Care for Your Metal Door

Wednesday August 11th, 2021
There are many benefits to installing a metal door in your home. Both interior and exterior metal doors can turn any old doorway into a grand entrance. However, just like any wood door, metal doors require regular maintenance and care in order to ensure the lifespan of the door.

How to Clean and Care for Your Metal Door
  1. Dust
  2. Clean with a Soapy Mixture
  3. Remove Rust
  4. Clean Glass
  5. Oil Hinges
Metal doors are a very low maintenance option for a stunning, luxurious look and with these 5 steps, you can keep your new metal door looking fresh and new.

1. Dust - Many homeowners forget about their doors when it comes to their weekly dusting routine. Metal doors need to be dusted weekly just like any other piece of furniture because dust can actually contain water-soluble salts that can lead to corrosion and rusting.

2. Clean with a Mild Soap - You should clean your doors with soap and water at least once a month. This will ensure you catch any corrosion or rusting early on. Mix water with any mild soap like liquid castile soap or vegetable-based soap.

3. Remove Rust - Inspecting your door for rust is a crucial task for every metal door owner. Once your door starts to rust you want to make sure you catch it quickly to protect the door from further damage. Here are a few tips for removing rust: Use a wire brush to scrape the rust off the door carefully. You can also use sandpaper or a grinder to remove rust.

4. Clean Glass - Clean the glass on your door at your own leisure. Clear glass styles in comparison to textured glass styles require a more frequent cleaning routine, especially if you have little ones running around the home! Use your choice of glass cleaner to wipe any fingerprints or residue off the glass portion of your door.

5. Oil Hinges - Keeping your door looking great is important, but keeping your door operating correctly is also very important. Regularly oil the hinges on your door to avoid any unpleasant creaking or squeaking noises. You can use any type of door oil or WD-40 with a clean cloth to oil your hinges and ensure your door continues to open and close smoothly!
