Among all entry door materials, steel could be ranked as the most difficult one to maintain. On the flip side, steel entry doors are durable and secure, which make them the ideal option for large houses. Still, you have to deal with the maintenance part sooner or later. So, if you are planning to get a steel entry door you have to know what you’re dealing with first.
Here are some tips to help you maintain and take good care of your investment.
Steel is a delicate entry door material, especially when you’re using water to clean it. Never let the water sit too long or dry because minerals from tap water can cause permanent damage because of chemical reactions. When choosing cleansers, use only the mild ones. Then, non-abrasive cloths should be enough to wipe off dirt, grime and stains.
Regular Inspection and Repair
Have a local door contractor inspect your entry door once in a while to look for damage, identify the cause, repair it and anticipate future issues. Hiring a qualified inspector goes a long way in preserving the quality of your entry door for a long time.
