Tips for Keeping your Wooden Doors in Great Shape

 

If you are like most people, you feel that using natural wood in the home, including the front and back entrance, gives the home a warm, classic and elegant look. It can also provide the perfect look for a ranch-style home, a wood cabin look, a rustic home design, or as a perfect addition to a brick or stone home.

Wooden doors have long been used for entrance ways, both front and back, but they are also used as interior doors. In the last few decades, many homeowners have moved away from wood to products such as vinyl and aluminum, assuming they wouldn’t have to complete any repairs or replacements. However, as with any type of door, even these man-made products will need work over time.

What many people fail to realize is that with our wooden doors we have kept up with technology to allow us to design, construct and finish all our interior and exterior wood doors to be long lasting; a lifetime investment in your home.

 

Basics Cleaning

No matter how clean your home may be, dusting off your doors, exterior and interior doors, is a simple way to help retain the natural glow and richness of the wood. It also helps prevent dust, dirt and sand from rubbing onto the surface, creating fine scratches or marks on the surface.

Simply wiping it down with a dry, lint-free cloth or a microfiber cloth is all that is required. For light types of dirt accumulations or mud, use the same cloth with warm water, followed by a dry cloth.

For more extreme types of stains, such as grease, oil, or sticky messes, try warm soapy water and a rinse with clean water. If you are using any type of cleaning product, make sure to test a very small area of the door (not visible) before applying.

 

Don’t Use Abrasive Cleaners

Avoid using any type of abrasive cleaning products or scrubbers on any wooden door. This will not only remove the surface sealant, but it can also damage the stain and the door itself.

Our staff is always available during business hours if you have a stain problem and aren’t sure how to remove it. Even if you do have to use a harsher cleaning method, it is not complicated to stain and seal the door again, giving the door back its natural luster and color.
