Once you’ve purchased and installed a new interior door, you still have plenty to do. If you want to keep your interior door looking great and working well, you need to make sure that you take good care of it. Performing routine maintenance will ensure that all of your interior doors will look and act just like they should.
Here are a few things that you should do to help maintain your interior doors:
Lubrication: Interior doors have hinges and joints that can get rusty and tight over time. In addition, if these doors have bolt locks, these can also become stuck or hard to move. You can keep this from happening by spraying your door’s hardware with a lubricating spray. Do this once every few months to ensure that your door’s bolts, hinges and other parts work like they should.
Cleaning: When you are doing your routine cleaning of your home, don’t forget to clean your interior doors. You can use a wood polish on wooden doors or household cleaners for metal doors. Make sure that you dry the doors to avoid the hinges rusting.
