These doors not only enhance the visual appeal of your home but also promise a long life span with minimal maintenance.


Routine Cleaning

A simple yet effective way to keep your composite door looking as good as new is by cleaning it regularly. It’s advisable to clean your internal and external door facings and any glass at least every four months. All you need is some warm water, a soft sponge or cloth, and a mild soap. Gently clean the surfaces to remove dirt, grime, and any other residues that may have accumulated. This simple routine can go a long way in preserving the fresh look of your composite door.


Lock Lubrication

The lock is a crucial part of your composite door, ensuring the security of your home. It’s recommended to annually lubricate moving parts. Specifically, check the operation of the key mechanism with the door open. If you notice that the key requires excessive force to engage the lock mechanism, then lubricate the key-way with a silicone-based spray lubricant – like WD40. This small maintenance step can prolong the life of your lock and ensure smooth operation.


Glass Cleaning

The glass sections of your composite door contribute significantly to its aesthetic appeal. Regular cleaning will maintain clarity and allow natural light to flow into your home. Use a soft cloth or a microfibre cloth to clean the glass parts of your composite door. A quality glass cleaner can add an extra shine, enhancing the overall look of your door.


Maintaining Seals and Hinges

The seals and hinges of your composite door are essential for its functionality and insulation properties. Annually inspect the rubber seal fitted to the outer frame. If you find evidence of tearing, cracking, or shrinking, it’s time to seek professional assistance. Ensure the hinges are in good condition and free from rust or other damage. These small yet crucial components play a significant role in the overall performance and longevity of your composite door.


Special Features Care

Your composite door comes with unique features like excellent insulation and soundproofing. Periodic checks and maintenance will ensure these features continue to perform optimally. For instance, check the threshold for dirt, debris obstructions, and ensure that the drainage holes within this are clean. Such maintenance steps will uphold the insulation and soundproofing qualities of your door, contributing to a comfortable and quiet indoor environment.
