The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is pivotal in preserving the elegance and operational efficiency of your doors. It safeguards against common wear-and-tear issues, extending the lifespan of your door significantly.  

General Cleaning Techniques

Cleaning your doors every four months is a good practice. Use a soft cloth and mild soap solution to gently wipe down the door surface and glass. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft towel to prevent water spots.  

Cleaning Techniques for uPVC, Aluminium, and Composite Doors

  • uPVC Doors:
    • Avoid abrasive cleaners which can scratch and dull the surface.
    • Check the rubber seal fitted to the outer frame annually for any signs of damage.
  • Aluminium Doors:
    • Utilise a matching RAL touch-up pen for any minor scratches found during your door-check.
    • Keep the aluminium roller track free from any dirt or debris to ensure smooth operation.
  • Composite Doors:
    • After cleaning, polish the handles and letter plate with a quality wax furniture polish, applying directly to the cloth and not the product.
    • Ensure there’s no gap between the letter plate and the face of the door; tighten the screws behind the internal flap if necessary.

French DoorMaintenance Schedule for Longevity

  • Annually lubricate moving parts with a silicone-based spray lubricant, except for the rolling mechanisms in aluminium bi-folding doors as they require no lubrication.
  • Conduct a thorough inspection of the rubber seals, key mechanisms, and other hardware.
  • Ensure the threshold and drainage holes are clean and free from obstructions.

Combatting Condensation

Condensation is a common occurrence, especially during colder months. It’s essential to maintain a well-ventilated home to prevent excessive condensation on your doors and windows.
